Day 1

I am writing this blog for those travellors for whom GOA is their second home.
And even for those who want to explore goa in different way...
So here we go...

One more vacation and its Goa again......

I doubt anyone ever will get bored with this most attractive state of India...same is with me.
I visit goa 2-3 times in a year..
but this time my visit was a bit different, as I explored a totally new part of goa:-

The two beautiful , less crowded & sea clear beaches:-
Morjim and Ashvem...
These two are the best secrets of north goa..
Unexplored and less inhabitated.

To start with my stay...
We stayed at a very new resort property in Morjim named as I Love Bell Bottoms.( infact the name itself attracted me 🤪)
Not coz we stayed here but to be precise its one of the best places you need to try in morjim for your stay.
The way every ammenties and facilities are organised in this resort makes it worth staying.
Above all kids loved this property as its full of colours.And every room has a different colour theme .If you ask me about the food its was delicious and had lots of varieties.

After having delicious lunch and some leisure time in the attractive guitar shaped pool...
in evening we visited morjim beach.
It has small shacks and a pure sand to play with.

After a nice photo session we left the beach with a superb evening memories.
Tips
Time required:- 25 mins
Travel source:- own vehicle, or two wheeler on rent are available

For dinner we prefered one of our favourite  food spots  Cohiba.....located near taj vivanta, fort aguada road. Its a place with a mesmerizing ambience, nice food and superb live music.Had a fantastic time there.
Time required:- 60 mins
Travel source:- preferably 4 wheeler

Day 2
Mornings r always late in goa..but not for those who don't like to miss the sunrise.(so head to charpora fort to view the sunrise)

Post having the variety of Breakfast it was time for the pool session again and some laziness till afternoon.

Then we left for Ashvem beach which is tentatively one hour from this place.
The lanes and houses around gives us a feel of real goa...
Enjoying the scenic beauty around we reached the beach.There is a shack named Babu's hut we entered the beach through this shack.
The parking is at upper level and we need to walk down to reach the beach.
We reached there sharp at 4 pm and believe me its the perfect time to reach so that you can have the proper beach and me moment.This beach  has more foreign tourists as compared to indians.
So the environment is completely different.
We enjoyed some nice starters at the shack and then went to connect ourselves with the waves.

Evening spent so well at ashvem that no one of us was in a mood to return back to hotel.
But we had to..

Time required:- 35 mins
Travel source:- two wheeler to enjoy the scenic beauty
Things needed:- fully charged moblie or camera to capture the scenic sunset

After getting fresh we proceeded to saturday night bazar at anjuna which is near from morjim.
Searching for unique stuff ?
then this is the best option in goa.
Right from traditional jewelleries to antique art pieces you can find everything at this place.
And dont forget to try different cuisines here..with live rock bands
Its just worth visiting this place..(but remember on saturdays)

Time required:- 30 mins
Things needed:- wallets full and bags for shopping

Day 3:-

If you are at morjim and  if you dont visit charpora fort...then you will miss out something big.

The fort which got the fame from the blockbuster movie  dil chahta hai is a superb place to visit.
you need to climb the fort and once you reach there you get a beautiful view of the famous vagator beach and morjim beach.
I would suggest not to miss the sunrise at charpora fort.

There are many food stalls at the start point of this fort so the best option to make your tummy full.
Time required:-25 mins
Things needed:- comfortable footwear ( preferably walking shoes)
charged mobile or camera to capture the beautiful sunrise.

I am heading back with new memories of goa.
Time has come to say bye to one of my favourite destinations.
I would prefer saying ....see you soon GOA.
