Have you ever considered visiting Goa in Off season and that too South Goa? No, then start packing your bags. A pleasant surprise is waiting for you.
Benefits of OFF Season-
1.Cheap Travel- We got flight ticket as cheap as bus ticket (as in peak season)
2.Cheap Accommodation- You can get the discount on accommodation of 50%(more or less).
We booked a home stay (2bhk apartment) in Colva. I personally prefer apartments because you dont just get a room but the whole place is yours.
If you feel to have the wanderer’s best friend Maggi or steaming cup of hot coffee in the middle of night you just don’t need to depend on someone, quickly prepare it whatever you love to have. You have all kitchen stuff including fridge, microwave, utensils etc. You have TV, washing machine and the best the apartments are too cute!!!
3.Cheap rental bikes or Cars - During off season you have attractive offers of renting a bike and getting around the place on your own! Self-riding bike or car rentals allows you to go where you choose, when you choose. There’s no driver nagging you. Pay, Ride and Travel the Gooooaaaaa!!!! You can get bike in range of 250 INR.
4.Less Crowded Goa- This is the best thing about off season. Less crowd where you stay, it’s like getting your private swimming pool and private beaches and you own empty roads. It sound cool right.
5. Cheap Alcohol- Goa without alcohol is incomplete.
We landed early morning at the airport and hired a cab to Colva. We took a power nap before starting our day. The first thing we did was to get the rental bikes. You can get rental bikes in every corner of the GOA. We went to Palolem beach. The road from Colva to Palolem was mesmerizing. It was all over pristine and lush green. The air was delightfully cool as the wind romanticized the ride. I have been to north Goa multiple times but South Goa awe... struck me with its beauty. We were half the way it started raining and we halted at a small tea stall. Nothing can give you more joy by watching the rain drops and enjoying the cool breeze and sipping on a hot cuppa of chai and munching on hot pakora with your besties. It was drizzling still we started and it was worth riding it. You heart says, don’t stop just go on… when both the sides are bright green and small drops are falling from sky and a beautiful smooth road is moving ahead of you. We reached our destination Palolem, a paradise on earth. Despite the fact that it wasn’t a peak season, there were few beach shack bars open. The alcohols are cheap but in shacks it’s little expensive. We put the music on and played Frisbee.
Advise- Carry alcohols from local shop on beach but don’t liter the beach. Take a Frisbee or a ball to play on beach. You can also take a novel if you are a bookworm.
We went into the water and it started drizzling again and it just added more fun. We headed back to colva passing from the most spell bounded view.
You have some cool nightlife spots in Colva.
We missed few places around Palolem-
