Reached there after about 1 hour and rested for a while. Got freshen up and as planned left the hotel in the evening as we were left with only half of the day. Before that we also rented Scooty, which is must and the only and best way to travel in Goa. We rented 2 Scooty's for two days and it costs us about 1400 Rs in total.
So, we started off with igniting our Activa and head on to a place we don't know. Actually we were hungry so, we had to find something to eat first. After we got some energy we head over to Calungute Beach as that was only nearby place to go before Arpora Market. I suggest don't use Google Maps there as sign boards are enough to solve your route.
Reaching Calungute Beach almost at dim light was not a good idea, although the place was lit up with good lights, shops on sides, loud music from restaurants, busy streets and beaches decorated with lights and candles for family's and couples. We parked out Scooty and headed towards the beach, stood there at sea shore for while feeling the water touching and going. Although nothing was visible in dark but light was enough to lit the place.
After Calungute we headed to Arpora Market which was about 15 to 20 min away. We drove till there and when we were inside of the Market we realized that this is not actual market. There was one more Saturday market just like this one 15 mins away. But we stayed there, we were not in energy to go further.
Arpora Market is basically, Goa's famous Saturday Market and its like a normal market where everything is available from clothes to antiques, toys to beauty products, food products also live music was being performed, different food stalls were sided. Well after enjoying there having dinner there itself, we came back to room with a Chilled Beer and slept for next day.
Starting your Day with cup of good tea is a sign of good day. We started riding towards more of north as the place is about 1 hour away and before we reached there my friend met with an accident. Yes, it was not so major but both of them got injections and proper dressing. Thanks to one the family there who helped us to take my friends to near by doctor. After about two 1.5 hours we reached Arambol Beach.
Reaching there I see a beautiful view, it was like I have visited some other country. The beach was totally clean, clear water, not much crowd, not much noise. Mostly you will see more of foreigners enjoying on shacks, bathing in sea water and people are just relaxing there. Beautiful shacks there where yo can sit and eat and the view is just literally relaxing so did we relaxed at one the cafe there and ate something as we were hungry, didn't had breakfast also.
After enjoying in Salt Water we headed towards to Sweet Water Lake walking only by the shore. It was about 15 mins walk from Arambol Beach and man what the lane was that.. beauty that we say. All shops owned by Indians and some by foreigners. Its like side market for all where you can shop as well as eat by the side at restaurants enjoying the beauty of the sea.
Then came the sweet water lake which is actually a fun part. Different from beach water which is salty, this lake was actually good and you know whats the best part, you can go in. Yes, the water level is not to high nor too low, you can just simply stand and enjoy the water. In between the water, my friend challenged me that we both have to put heads in water and collect the sand from our feet and by this we wanted to see who can bring the sand, but most importantly who can hold the breath in water. Well, I failed the first time.
Anyways after having fun there we went back, took our scooty's and head back towards next destination. Our plan was actually to visit Anjuna Beach, but we changed our plan and decided to go Baga Beach. We did this beacuse firstly we didn't have time to cover everything for that day as per plan and secondly, the first's thing the only reason. Well, like all other beaches, this was same but more of a loud one. There were not two or three but more that 5 shacks running music out loud. So we didn't actually danced there but most of it we sat on warm sand and enjoyed the beautiful sunset. While my friends got some urgent few minutes work to do I got some my time so, I v-logged and was just roaming on beach enjoying the view and by the time it was dark we went to TITO's lane.
TITO's Lane was exactly the way where we came to Baga. All Pubs and Restaurants, live music and etc.. are a part of this lane and actually it is the best one as I heard from everyone before coming here. We went to the famous TITO's restaurants ate some food, basically Italian as we were not so hungry and left from there. Also, our day ended with Beer as usual.
NOTE: We also surveyed for Scuba Diving in between the whole day, one person at Arambol we met told us all the schemes and one at TITO's.
Well our third starts with Check Out, no this is not the last day but we were moving to our other hotel in South Goa which was actually a bad decision. Now, we checked out of the north goa hotel and were heading to South Goa, after about 1.5 hours we reached out destination and we were so pissed because of the no man's land. I mean there people, but there was no crowd like north, all natures beauty all around.
Our hotel in South Goa was booked from GoIBIBO and as usual pictures were great but once again the location was silent and no sign of anyone or guard to check - in. We contacted customer care and we got to know that a new procedure is followed here for check-in process. As everything will be on WhatsApp and messages. We sent our ID proofs to the concerned person on the other side and exactly on check - in time we will receive a code which we have to put in on a giant lock hanging outside the door and after the lock is open, collect the keys from inside that giant lock and open the main lock at door. If you still don't understood watch my Day 3 Goa V-Log.
Anyways after everything we finally checked into hotel and got freshen up and then move out to check out for scooty nearby and by walking, we reached Utorda Beach. I am not going to say WOW because it was wonderful view on the other side. Clean blue water and peach sand was giving a perfect beach look. So, we enjoyed and went something to eat at near shack restaurant. We had Fried Rice and Kadhai Paneer with 1 Virgin Mohito, 2 Fruit Punch and all of that was good, not so bad but not worth the Bill.
Anyways after we had our Lunch we went further by walking asking for scooty again to everyone and then after some time we finally got the scooty so we immediately took it for 2 days, submitting the 2000 Rs security and rest of the amount as Rent per day plus 1 ltr Petrol each for both the scooty's.
We then headed to Benaulim Beach and round about 20 mins we reached there, will not talk about the beach now, the only difference was we got shells on this beach and by the time we were enjoying it was sunset, so we moved our asses and went somthing to eat there only. This time we took Chinese item and 1 Pineapple, 1 Banana Shake and 1 Orange Juice.
We left from there in 10 mins we reached Betalbatim Beach. The reason we came to this beach by the end of the day was that we actually saw on internet and also were finding the glowing tides beach. So, we found this was the beach and the whole process of glowing tides is called Bioluminescence. We sat on the enjoying the view and that beautiful evening, but we didn't saw any glowing tide and I don't know why. So, we ate Ice Cream and headed towards home. Had our dinner near to the Hotel only and went to room. Well, after all the tiredness we, had our beer and funny chit chat's. We then had a good sleep as we had to go to North Goa tomorrow.
