You don’t go to Goa to stay indoors. Undoubtedly, one of the best ways to CHILL in Goa is with an expertly mixed cocktail in hand and a breath-taking view in front of the eyes.

Here’s a list of the best places in Goa which pair exquisite drinks and lip-smacking dishes with brilliant vistas.

Imagine bonfires by the beach, crazy cocktails, chilled bear, open beach and gorgeous views of the sunset and moon rise! Sound’s LIT? Initially known as Jojo’s Sundowner, at the northern end of Palolem beach, Sundowner has everything that you dream of in a boho beach-side café.

USP:

You can walk down to the rocks where the beach ends for a time of solitude or dance away to their electrifying beats on Friday nights. Or just attend one of their full moon parties for a FAB time!

Must-Try:

1.) Super chilled beer with stone oven-baked pizzas

2.) The best Pina-Colada in the world along with Tapas.

3.) One of Hemant's Mojitos (they’re the best in town!)

4.) Their cucumber cooler is an awesome sundowner after a hot day at the beach.

However, since the place is just by the beach it is open only from October to April. In fact, in times of high-tides, they offer you a free boat ride back to land.
