We normally stay in North Goa but find that too noisy and busy. This area reminds us of our early days. We use the beach most mornings for a walk before it's too hot. Sunbeds are clustered near actual beach access but thin out very...More
We tried 4 beaches in total in Goa and this beach for us was the worst.
It is clean with beach shacks and sun beds like all the others however the amount of sellers ruined the experience.
We were there for about 5 hours and...More
the beach isa beautiful stretch of sand where you can enjoy the beach and the shacks for lunch but it is being spoilt by the relentless actions of the beach sellers who don't take no for an answer and many tourists were avoiding the beach...More
I stayed at the Holiday Inn, so we were at the public section of the beach, but we walked to a public beach every day. We found the beach to be beautiful along the mile long walk from Holiday Inn to the public beach and...More

In South Goa, you can find the Netravali Bubbling Lake, the beautiful Mobor/Cavleossim Beach, Palolem Beach, Cabo De Rama Fort, Galgibaba Beach (Tortoise Nesting Beach), Sahakari Spice Farm (for an auhentic Goan experience). These are some of the places that you can explore when in South Goa, since it is very quiet and all the luxury resorts are situated here.
If you fancy loud noises and crowded beaches, then North Goa is more commercial and cheaper. Mode of transport is surely a car on rent, which you can get easily right outside Radisson Hotel. If you want to ride a bike for longer hours, then you can also take scooty/bike on rent from the same guy.

Hi, My wife and I (early 50s) are planning a two week holiday to South Goa from the UK arriving 22/03/09. This will be our second trip to Goa, our first was March 2006.

I visited the Dona Sylvia and had a tour it looked great - you iwll not be dispaointed. I talked to other guests that were staying there and they had nothing but good things to say about it. The beach is great also - a bit busier than further up the road at the holiday inn - but you would not call it crowded. It is a very good location too.

Thinking of booking to Go to Goa (5 Replies)
Hi everyone, looking at Goa - I'm a bit of a forward planner and always sort things out well in advance. I've already booked most of next year's jaunts ie Mexico, Rome & Vienna and now I'm turning my attention to 2008 - oh my God I hear you all say!!!! Anyway, we're really interested in Goa for Easter which I know will be in April and will be rather hot and although we are used to it, I'm limited to school hols. The point is, we want authentic and unspoilt Goa and so, having read a lot...More

We spent 4 weeks last season with our 8 year old daughter in Cavelossim and she absolutely loved it and she can't wait to return in March. She had no problems with injections etc. and loved the food (which is varied) any questions just ask?
