Luxury Goa Holiday India – To Goa or not to go – the charm of the Algarve with the spirit of India.

Luxury Goa Holiday India

 

Luxury Goa Holiday India.  Goa is India’s smallest state but it has been long considered one of the most charming parts of the country.  Picture the white-washed charm of the Algarve with a jungle backdrop and you have it!

Goa has long been a staple of the hippy trail.  You will still find the back packer beach parties on Palolem and Patnem while Anjum remains an alluring hippy haven thanks to its irresistible night market and the great curve of Angoda beach has even built up a reputation with longboarders for the mellow waves that roll in.

If you’re looking to escape from your sun lounger in pursuit of some culture, visit Panaji, larger Vasco da Gama or the old city of Margao where you will find the old colonial quarters, influenced by almost 450 years or Portuguese occupation but sprinkled with a fair dose of rich Indian culture.  Goa has also become a haven for health seekers catering to those looking for Yoga Mediatation, ayuvedic therapy and organic diets. Then if you want to spice it up, the region remains one of the heartlands of India’s spice cultivation.

Climate

The climate of Goa is warm and humid for most of the year.
