Beach Line Up
The Goa coastline stretches from north to south in a scenic alternation of bays and headlands significantly broken by river estuaries. The shimmering golden sand, sun-dappled water, salty whiff of the sea and salubrious ocean breeze make a feast for the senses! The beaches of Anjuna, Vagator and Morjim are driving distance from our villa, as is the hot and happening Baga –Calangute beach belt.
Popularly known as the ‘Rome of the East’, Goa was a Portuguese territory for more than four hundred and fifty years. The Goan landscape is studded with parochial churches built in the 16th and 17th centuries. The Church nearest to the villa is the Assagao Church, a small church that serves the local parish. The precincts of Old Goa, a UNESCO world heritage site, is about 25 kms from the villa and worth a visit for first time visitors to Goa.
The Wednesday Flea Market in Anjuna, started once by the the hippies to sell their belongings to help fund the rest of their stay, is now a beach market where you can get souvenirs, trinkets, beach wear or even have your hair braided or nose pierced. The Friday Mapusa market is a weekly day market, with locals selling a bafling array of household ware, fresh produce, spices and dried fish. The Saturday Night Bazaar in Arpora is the Mother of all markets in Goa, where entertainment, food stalls, handicrafts, clothing, tarot reading, art…. all come together in a bohemian rhapsody.
You can pump up your adrenalin with water sports like parasailing, jet skiing, banana boat rides and windsurfing, while dolphin cruises, boat and yacht cruises on the Mandovi river are better for the less adventurous. With a choice of entertainment from Latino, jazz, karaoke, EDM and retro venues, you can find a hot spot to match your style at many a night spot in Goa.
