It comes as no surprise that ‘beaches in Goa’ is number one on the search list. And rightly enough, Goa has a variety of beaches to explore such as Calangute beach, Palolem beach, Anjuna beach and Miramar beach to name a few. With breathtaking sunsets and that reflect on the beautiful ripples of the sea, life is certainly better on the beach!

One of the most common of questions that pops up the moment boredom strikes, is, ‘what to do?’ And, being clueless while chilling in Goa is what led to search number 3, ‘things to do in Goa’.

Well, lucky for you, Goa is blessed with more than just a few things to do and caters to almost every type of relaxation goal that you might have. Be it adventure sports, water sports, trekking amidst nature, dancing at a party, or simply chilling by the beach, the question is not what to do in Goa, but how to find the time to do it all!

Search number 4 was, ‘Nightlife in Goa,’ and with a bustling nightlife scene, visiting a club is always an option when in Goa.

Some of the places that you can visit are SinQ nightclub, Hammerz nightclub, Club Cubana, Club LPK – Love Passion Karma, to name a few. Going full circle, there’s so much to do once the sun sets. And, dancing until the sun rises again is one of them!
