“Goa - Beautiful Beaches”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

It will be a brief writeup. Some key points:

1. If you are travelling from Mumbai to Goa -- Choose NH 4 over NH 17, if you prefer safety. NH 17 passes through Ghats.

2. When you approach Goa from Mumbai, no need to go upto Belgam. There is a cut at a place called Nipani. Do not miss it. You will save 30 km.

3. Try to reach Nipani during day. After Nipani, SH begins and then route upto Amboli passes through Ghats. Better to go during day. Also in this stretch, very few milestones/ route signs are there, so day time is better.

4. At Goa, best beaches are: Vagator, Bagha and Anjuna. Vagataor in particular is really good. Most guided tours go to Calangute which is also good but crowded. Sequirem beach is also nice.Tour operators deliberately leave Vagator / Anjuna as it is far away. But insist on going to these two beaches.

5. We stayed at Ginger Hotel. Value for money. Book early.

6. I took my car. Journey took 10 hrs. Now I enjoy driving, but 10 hrs does become exhausting. Next time I would go by train and take a two-wheeler/ car at Goa. I think it is a better option.

7. Those fond of Casino: Our experience at Casino Royale was quite reasonable. Now they do not allow kids inside Casino. Kids have a TV zone, but they get bored there. Further one feels bad, if kids are getting bored. In our case this was one reason that we decided to leave early. So Plan accordingly.

8. No dearth of decent restaurants. I prefer north Indian food. Moti Mahal, Sher E Panjab, Kamat (for light snacks/ south Indian) were good.

“A very good place to visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Sunset at Vagator Beach is beautiful. You can sit at shacks and enjoy the view.

Shacks at Vagator Beach is one of the best that we have seen in Goa.

“Vagator Beach, the best beach in North Goa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Vagator Beach is the best beach in North Goa if you are looking for a tranquil and serene beach. Less people travel to this beach as this located a bit away from the popular beach destinations in north Goa. The best option to visit this beach is hiring a vehicle for a day and take the car to this location and spend some quality time there. You won't find anyone disturbing you, there are no hawkers. I would suggest you to visit the Chapora Fort which gives a aerial and panoramic view of the beach and then go down to the beach from there. Coconut trees by the beach make it more attractive and you get lovely view all around. This beach is not for those who are looking for happenings because it is serene. The tourist traffic is predominantly western backpackers but it is also popular with Indian tourists, who particularly come to watch the sunset from the rocks and those who come to visit the famous Chapora fort. Chapora fort has become famous to Indians after the shooting of "Dil Chahta Hai", "Masti" etc. movies.

We hired a vehicle to visit the north beach circuit and we stopped here for more than 3 hours, we didn't know when the time passed by. We came down to the beach and it was a superb experience being there and witness the mind blowing view of the sea there.
