The general conception is that North Goa is for the budget traveller, whereas the South, with its resorts and relatively isolated beaches appeals to the luxury traveller. When my husband and I decided to go to Goa, we were caught in a bind as we were neither budget nor luxury travellers. After much soul searching, we decided to take a risk and headed to North Goa. The risk paid off and how ! We managed to tick all the boxes in our fun filled and relaxing holiday. So take a look at the following points to have a holiday as good as ours.
We settled on Baga deck for our location primarily for the nearby restaurants. Also it's equidistant from both Baga and Calungate beaches and near the Arpora and Anjuna night markets, as well as near Club Cubana(Goa's No 1 Club).
We booked a cottage in Little India Beach cottages online and it turned out to be a real find.A long winding path through the property leads down to the beach in 2 mins.They have their own beach shack for your food and drinks and foot massages.
The best part:this little piece of oasis that we discovered was only 4500 bucks/night/cottage.
The beach was midway between Baga and Calungate beaches so had fewer tourists , mostly foreigners and was totally clean unlike the other beaches.Perfect for relaxing and having a few drinks without the crowds and the noise during the day time.We also walked along the beach to reach Baga and Calungate beaches so no extra transport expenses.
