Goa’s serving UNESCO-listed, Euro-esque streets alongside hot, hot beaches. And frankly, we’re here for it. Revellers in the know will tell you the best parties left the region long ago. Yes, the wellness vibe far outweighs the hedonism in Goa. But you can still find a suitably buzzing nightlife spot, if you know where to look. And, really, you’ll want to keep your eyes peeled for your entire stay. Big cats stalk the wildlife reserves, exotic birds flit between the beach-front palms and sparkly trinkets nestle in the flea market finds.
Exploring Goa will always be well-rewarded, but you’d be forgiven for chancing upon a stellar beach and sticking to it. FOMO be damned. If you find your slice of Goa paradise, set up your beach towel and revel in it. Seafood’s served right on the beach, in places, and the dolphins come right to the shore. Goa’s that kind of place. Trek your tootsies off. Sloth on the sands. Either way, you’ll have an epic time. Of course, we’ll try our best to tempt you to the forts, rolling dunes, ancient ruins and curious nooks Goa does so well. But no-one will judge you if you opt for an air-con-cooled hour or two of heaven watching a Bollywood blockbuster instead.
