Isn’t spending hours at a beach, watching sunset a guilty pleasure for most of us? Well yes, I call it a guilty pleasure because I have put off exploring many places and chose lazing on the warm sand so many times! But, have you tried waking up early and exploring breath-taking nature trails in Goa? Visit Cotigao which isn’t too far from south for birds and Malabar squirrels! Bhagwan Mahavir and Mhadeil WLS are a treat for bird lovers. I was lucky to spot some otters at Kakolem Beach early in the morning.
6. Dolphin Watching
Dolphin watching in Goa, isn’t that the most common thing in goa, how does it even qualify as an offbeat thing? I agree with you, it doesn’t. But spotting a dolphin off shore, near to you with no boats around hits you different. It is like them coming to you and not you going to them. Visit Kakolem or Cabo De rama (near cave) early in the morning and you could see some of them come close to the shore and put up a show for you. At times close enough for your dropped jaws to be witnessing them double flip right in front of your eyes!
Well, satiating the dug dug craving is the Goan Dream for many. But trust me, as much as the Royal Enfield gets your adrenaline rushing, a bicycle ride from Palolem to Patnem soothes your soul! You can easily rent bicycles in Palolem. The beauty about a bicycle is that you can rent it for a month in the same cost as a fancy bike for 4 days.
