The calming sultry winds, the roaring of the deep blue oceans far-far away from buzzing life of the Bangalore city. Goa, the party center of the country could be more than just that if given a chance.
Its a deep-deep place, so beautifully enriched with such rooted cultures, it could take anyone's breath away. Lined with such beautifully majestic churches it is, but a surprise that even though there are more than 30 churches they still go unnoticed.

The beaches obviously are the main attraction. A tiring 10 hour drive from the main Bangalore city, 4 of which were spent in a horrid traffic jam in the hilly regions of Goa, and trust me if I say that's probably the only thing about the place you want to avoid.

There are two routes to Goa from Bangalore one that by-passes Belgaum city and other which passes by Mangalore city, also a beautiful city line with both tea gardens and beaches both at the same time, the second being longer. We checked in the rooms of Air-force Mess,  probably the only place you'd get a room at such a time and at such a minimal price, The perks of being from defense background. Took off for a walk towards Casino Royale, a beautiful sight that it is, with the ships and boats sailing across the water range, lighting up to their best efficiencies.
 

Coco beach, about a km and a half from the rooms we rented out, was our very first stop in this insanely magnificent place. It was a place recommended by the locals and not high on any to go list you'd find over the internet. Coco beach is famous for its dolphin sightings.
