· Jet-Ski ride: Another popular water sport is to ride on the water, splashing on the waves on a jet-ski. The thrill you feel on a jet-ski ride is unbeatable.

Banana-Boat ride: It is also a very thrilling adventure activity which could be done by a group of 4-5 people. You have to hold your banana boat really tight as it will be dragged by a very high speed motor- boat. It goes to such a speed that you could even fall in the mid of the sea, but don’t worry you are in safe hands as there is a guard in the boat who will pull you back again.

· Bumper-Boat ride: It is somewhat like banana boat ride; the only difference is that it could be done by 2 people at a time.

· Sail-Boat ride: It is the latest addition in the water activities at Goa, these are actually sail boats without any motor, which will take you for a tour of 2Kms in the mid-sea, their movement depend on the direction of winds. It is actually a great experience, you just have to sit on the net bed of boat or you can even lie-down, you fill feel as if you are yourself a fish swimming in this huge sea. So, if in Goa, give it a try.

· Flyboarding: Who doesn’t want to fly?? Everyone in this planet has an inner desire to fly and this latest addition in water-sports is catering this inner desire of ours. In this adventure sport water is pushed beneath pair of boots worn by you, by this water pressure the rider flies in the air upto a certain height an when pressure is released, again drops in the water. It looks a bit scary and we didn’t had the guts to try it. But please do let us know, I anyone of you goes there and try this sport and let us know your experience. We are eagerly looking forward for your personal experiences, so that we could gather courage to try it out someday.

Places to Visit:

There are numerous places to visit in Goa, some of the handpicked places are as follows:

· Beaches: Goa has some of the best beaches of the country. Many people come to Goa just to see these beautiful sandy beaches. There are approx 22 beaches in Goa, and most of them are inter-connected with each other. If you visit beaches at North Goa they are a bit crowded but are best for adventure sports and nightlife. But if you want peace and privacy than you have to visit beaches at South Goa. In our opinion, one should visit some important beaches of both North and South Goa, if you don’t have the time to visit all the 22 beaches. Remember one thing, every beach is different, the sand is different, the landscape is different, the waves are different, and overall experience is different at each beach, so don’t be in a notion that every beach will be the same, so why visit many beaches. Some of our favourites are Baga beach(Adventure and party), Calangute beach (Adventure and party), Candolim beach (highly recommended for beautiful waves), Sinquerim Beach (Amazing views), Anjuna Beach(Amazing views), Arambol Beach(Peaceful), Miramar Beach(Mumbai Style Chowpati area), Dona Paula(Must visit, beautiful and scenic), Colva Beach(white sandy beautiful beach). These should not be missed if you don’t have the time to visit all the beaches.
