While North Goa buzzes of tourists, South Goa is calm and serene. Varca is one of those relatively quieter towns in the south of Goa for those who look for something beyond parties. The coastline is lined with black lava rocks, palm trees, a white sand shore and shacks with loungers. A tender sun makes it the perfect beach for sunbathing. Varca offers a diverse vacation package since it has almost everything in its vicinity. Cruises along the Sal river make for a great offshore experience. If you are a fan of extreme water sports, you are in for a treat. Windsurfing, parasailing, diving or jet skiing – just name it and Varca has it. A history tour around the quaint town will take you to one of the oldest buildings of Varca, the Our Lady of Gloria Church. This humble Catholic church stands tall in all its glory. Goa’s nightlife is much talked about and Varca is not far behind. After the sun goes down, a few pubs such as the Blue Lagoon and Island Bar are the places to hit for a crazy night out by the sea. If passive recreation is your thing, Varca is your destination.
