Breakfast near swimming pool is enough good event to start the day. Knowing that it’s a peak time and whole north India is here we took our funky towel map and found farthest beach in north. Arambol.
We three me, my wife and three year daughter took our classic rented Vespa and started 25km journey through the streets of India’s most beautiful state. Many travellers around the world are here to enjoy last day of the year.
We reach arambol beach passing through hills and rivers. It was crowded but not as baga and other beaches. So we took a sun bath bench in a shack. A beer and few dips in the Arabian sea to complete the effect of high. Peoples enjoying sea bath, sun bath, flying drones, para gliding, playing in sand, eating, drinking, swimming. Whereas some fishermen not bothered were pushing boat into sea.
We ordered crab and shack guy brought live crab with price tag. When it came as a food it has amazingly satisfied our appetite. some more beers and some more swimming in sea made the day. And as beach got more crowded we went another less known but beautiful beach. Mandrem.
We went down the hill and crossed the wooden bridge and explored the mandrem beach. Few shack were there and cook was amazing Goan lady who promised us to serve sardine fish in Goan curry. We loved it with couple of beer.
The sun started to set down for last time in 2016. Para glider we’re passing over us again and again. We were just enjoying sunset and food. Finally when sun went down, shack people arranged table and chairs for customers with candles. We took ride back to visit Arpora Saturday market. But we got stuck in traffic at baga than at club cabana. But market was amazing. Indian and foreigner had shops in this market and you will find many nice stuff here. From bong to spices, clothes to artifacts and food.
Being new year eve every where was jammed, beaches were crowded. Finally we went to condolim beach as don’t want to miss new year fire work. And ended up drinking couple of more beers.
