South Goa Tourism & Travel Guide

Go to the southern coast of the sunshine state to avoid all Goan clichés. South Goa is fringed by silken sands and turquoise waters of numerous beaches, starting from Palolem to Patnem. Palácio do Deão, an 18th century palatial mansion, is one of the most beautiful attractions of South Goa. If you want to dance away into the night, Palolem’s silent parties and the Full Moon Party on the Colva Beach boasting of neon paint and some seriously good psytrance music, are two of the most sought after things to do in southern Goa. Tourists looking for a slice of coastal life can bike through the beautiful tar road leading from River Sal to Agonda and walk through the idyllic Portuguese villages of Salcette and Quepem. The milky white torrents of the Dudhsagar Falls are also one of the most stunning places to visit in the city. All nature hippies travelling to Goa can head to the Cotigao Wildlife Sanctuary and the Bhagwan Mahavir Wildlife Sanctuary and spot everything from hyenas to otters. If you are seeking some quietude, take a walk down this region’s famous rock-carving trail. For adventure enthusiasts, South Goa has a plethora of options such as scuba diving, paragliding, jetskiing and parasailing.
