Goa...Fun Unlimited!!

This was not my first trip to Goa, but was my first trip to Goa in Monsoon. I was expecting very less tourist and Party scene around, but out of my surprise Goa was bustling with Tourist and parties , In true sense Goa is 365 days Holidays .... Be it Summer, Winter or even Monsoon that’s what I love about Goa... always Vibrant, bright, bubbly, happy and refreshing – the true Spirit of Goa!!!

I and my Friend decided to explore Goa in monsoon this time and we were there in the month of August, everywhere it was green and fresh, Goa looks much beautiful in monsoon.

Our Itinerary was just North Goa, to relax and to Party hard......

Day 1

After landing we went to our hotel relaxed for some time and hired a self drive Bike and headed to Anjuna Beach, One of the most popular sea beaches because of its night Parties, Curlies and other good eating joints, peaceful seashore, with chilled beer and good music in nearby restaurants and flea markets. We enjoyed the sunset there and spent the whole evening at curlies very famous beach Shack of Goa.

* Renting two wheeler in Monsoon may cost somewhere between Rs.200 to Rs.250 a day

*Anjuna is situated 21 km north of Panjim and 7 km from Baga.

* Anjuna Flea Market every Wednesday (Must Visit)

* Curlies most famous Shack in Anjuna, Shiva Valley Shack next to Curlies has Trance night every Tuesday

Day 2

Today we hired a Four Wheeler as it was raining and travelling by a two wheeler becomes difficult in rain.

Today we headed to Chapora fort the Famous Dil Chahta hai Fort, Chapora fort overlooking the sea make for an endearing sight. Now the fortress lies in ruins; however, the main incentive to climbing up here is the splendid view of nearby Anjuna and Vagator beaches. We spent some time there clicking few pics and enjoying the pleasant breeze and amazing view around the Fort.

Then we headed to Morjim Beach one of a very low-key – almost deserted beach in North Goa. It is a great place to spot a large variety of birds and Olive Ridley Turtles, hillocks and good food. Morjim is also known as mini-Russia due to large concentration of Russian immigrants and considered to be one of the top 10 beaches in Goa. There are not much of night parties here so it is advisable to go in late afternoon and spend the evening there enjoying the Sunset, beach and chilled beer and then go to some other beach and enjoy the night parties. So we did the same we had a great evening in Morjim and then left for Baga Beach and went to St. Anthony’s Shack one of my favourite Shacks in Goa, it has karaoke, Sheesha and some good music and it bustles with energy all the time.

*Renting a Car in Monsoon cost between Rs.1200 to Rs.1500 a Day

*Chapora Fort is Around 24 Kms from Panjim

*Morjim is located 29 km north of Panjim

*St. Anthonys Shack is almost end of Baga Beach next to Brittos Shack

Day 3

Today we planned to just roam around in Panjim and check out old Goa and click few pics, Goa’s architecture represents the spirit of Goa Vibrant, Bright and Colourful, it really looks Fascinating and beautiful. So we spent our afternoon wandering around in Panjim.

Evening we went to Baga one of the most happening and popular beach with youngsters, buzzing with energy and crowd, lot of restaurants and pubs on both the sides of the street with loud music , karaoke and lively atmosphere, All good pubs and restaurants are here. Titos street we tried few restaurants, Sipping cocktails, checking the crowd and enjoying different ambience. Lastly ended up in TIttos cafe again one of my Favourite open restaurants.

*Things to See in Panjim Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception Church

 Basilica of Bom Jesus 

Se Cathedral, Dona Paula etc

*Old Goa is congested so two wheeler makes it easy to roam around than compared to four wheeler

*Baga has many Restaurants, pubs and lounges Tittos and Mambos are one of the oldest and popular

* Baga is located 19 km north of Panaji

Day4

Today we visited Fort Aguada the Portuguese fort near Sinquerim Beach and did some water sports , all the other beaches also have water sports but I usually prefer at Sinquerim Beach as its less crowded and you can more time and don’t have to wait much for your turn.

A freshwater spring within the fort provided water supply to the ships that used to stop by. This is how the fort got its name: Aguada, meaning Water, a highly popular spot to watch the sunset, with uninterrupted views both north and south.

Then we went to Canlangute beach one of the most crowded beach of Goa lots of streets shops around, but the beach as such is not the best of all. There are neither swaying palms nor are there any traditional boats lying there to add variety, but still it’s one of the most crowded beaches of Goa. We did little bit of street shopping, spent some at the beach and headed to Vagator beach.

Vagator beach adjoining Anjuna is secluded, crescent shaped and situated on the Caisua bay along the Chapora river basin, in the shadow of Chapora fort, one of a favourite venue for mid night parties. We have spent some time there and went to one of the club in Vagator. Thalasa Restaurant , Greek style restaurant in Vagator is a upscale place and a perfect place to have few drinks while sunset, Ambiance is very simple yet beautiful, be ready to shell-out few more as it’s a little expensive place but a must visit.

* Sinquerim Beach is located 13 km north of Panaji

*Calangute is located 15 kms from Panjim and 2 km from Baga.

* At times this Calangute–Baga road is Goa’s worst traffic jam. * Vagator is located 21 km north of Panaji near Anjuna

* Thaslasa is Close during Monsoon

* Vagator has lot of good Pubs and lounges like Waters, Hill top, Nyex etc most of them are upscale, crowd here is also upscale as most of them are expensive places

Day 5

It was our last day we as usual got up late and left for Arambol Beach long unexplored beach surrounded by cliffs on two sides, with a Fresh Water lake and chirpy markets nearby, Arambol is considered to be one of the best beaches in Goa, A short walk to the north takes you to several attractive bays, the most famous among which is the sweet water lake.

Later in the Evening we went to LPK (Love passion and Karma) one of the most famous club in Goa, the entrance of the club is magnificent and insane but the club is little hyped and I personally don’t like the place much. But one should go there at least once to see the Entrance and the exteriors of the club. LPK has Cover charges to enter into the club, But if you just want to go to click some pics of the exterior and Entrance you can just do that also as its before the club entry gate.

We ended our Night at St. Anthony’s Shack in Baga, I love this place there’s something special about this place... it rocks!!

*Arambol Beach is located 50km north of Panjim

*In Arambol Beach there are few shacks and have lots of dogs.

*LPK entry varies between Rs.1500 to Rs.3000, many a times they don’t allow stags

We Just Visited North Goa this time, South Goa is comparatively much silent but have much better and clean beaches than North Goa. North Goa is Party Hub of Goa.

It is preferable to Visit Goa between the month of October to March, in monsoon most of the places are close or under Renovation.

Other places to see or Visit it in North Goa (Which we missed):

Beaches

*Keri Beach or Kerim Beach is located 58 km north of Panaji

*Mandrem beach the white sand beach is located 32 km north of Panaji

*Ashwem Beach

Markets

*Saturday Night Market Arpora

*BiCholim the hub of pottery

Hangouts

*Sinq Beach Club got famous from Sun burn after party at Sinquerium Beach

* Waters, Hill top, Nyex, 9Bar etc at Vagator Beach

*Club Cabana Arpora Beach

* Casinos MV Caravela, Casino Pride etc

Tips:

*If you in North Goa stay at Baga or Calangute beach the party hub but crowded, if you want a less crowded place then Sinquerium or Anjuna Beach also a good option

*Take self driven car or Two wheelers, easy to commute and less expensive as compared to Taxis

*Always carry one dress with you as its coastal area so you sweat a lot or you have go in the sea and sometimes is difficult to go to the hotel back and change

*Carry Shades and Sun Screen

*most of the club follow club rules like pants and shoes are compulsory

*Cops are helpful, be polite and don’t argue with them you can get yourself in trouble

* Do not keep your valuables unattended during your stay at the beach.

*There are Many Tattoo Studios select a good and hygienic one

Goa never cease to surprise you, it has everything to offer suiting your taste from overcrowded place to deserted beaches, Young bubbly crowd to matured subtle people, Loud trance/EDM clubs to Silent Shacks, Shopping, Churches, Adventure Sports, Art Galleries, Spas etc...

I can never get bored of Goa, Goa ....is Fun Unlimited!!
