Goa is in the western part of India. Its population is around 1.8 million and is the fourth “less-populated” state across India. More than half a million foreign tourists travel to Goa every year. Its capital is Panjim.

Why to visit Goa?

  1. Goa is all famous for its beaches, Casino, nightlife and cheap beer.
  2. Beer price is almost half as compared to the capital city, Delhi.
  3. It is completely safe. Even if you are a solo female traveller, you can walk around on streets late night.
  4. Less populated compared to other Indian states.
  5. It is famous for its water sports i.e. Scuba Diving, Windsurfing, Rafting, Jet Skiing, Banana Ride, Parasailing and Flyboarding.

Being born and brought up in Delhi, we never experienced beaches before so I, along with my two office colleagues planned to go there in March 2018. Every tourist place has its own beauty i.e. Kerala is known for its greenery, Uttrakhand is known for ancient Hindu temples, North Eastern states are known for its cleanliness and mountains. The same way Goa is known for its nightlife and beaches.

Day 1 : Calangute Beach & Baga Beach

We landed Goa Airport by 7:45am and had to cover still a 2hrs long Journey before reaching the hotel. Our hotel was “Sinq Beach Resort” which was around 40kms from the airport. We slept in the car because we were slightly tired of the journey as we woke up at 3am.

We reached hotel at around 10:30am, waited for 40-45mts to get our room keys and proceed to our room. We were only 3 people and all male so we just booked a single hotel room. The hotel was good with swimming pool, wifi, clean rooms, good room service and a small refrigerator to keep our beers chilled. We missed our hotel breakfast on that day since we were little bit late so we went to a restaurant nearby, had “Aaloo k Paranthe & Chai”.

The next target was to get 2 bikes/scooters on rent for next 4 days. You can also take a self-driving car on rent according to your convenience. You will also see many hoardings, banners across Goa with the message “Bike & Scooters on rent”, you can call them and they will come to your hotel. You can also ask your hotel staff about this, in case you have not find any banner.

Note: Avoid breaking any traffic rules in Goa as the challan rates are high compared to other Indian states. Carry your license, don’t break red lights, don’t drink and drive, follow proper roundabouts.

They charged us INR 300 for 1 scooter per night. We rented two scooters for next 4 days, came back to hotel room and thinking where to start with. Bhagirath suggested we should get few beers to charged up ourselves. This was one of those few things where we all agreed upon. Unlike North India, you will get beer and wine in the retails store here so we went to the nearest retail store and bought few beers, chips, peanuts etc.

Came back to the hotel room, had our beers for the next 2 hours and planned where to go now. The nearest beach was “Calangute beach” which was just 3-4kilometres from the hotel so we decided to go there. We left the hotel at 4pm and reached Calangute Beach by 4:30pm. Parked our scooters and went to the beach area. For north Indian guys like us, it is amazingly different feeling to see beaches. Locals and foreigners were dancing inside the shacks while having their drinks. We stayed there by 7pm and then left the place to get back to the hotel. Had Fried Rice, Chowmein in between the route and reached hotel by 7pm.

Rested for a while, changed our clothes and then to the swimming pool in hotel because this is where we feel relaxed the most.

The first day was now almost over and we were also tired by this time. So came back to the room, had few beers and slept.

Day 2 : Anjuna Beach, Baga Beach

We woke up the next morning at 7am, the weather was pleasant and we were excited. We knew we still have to cover so many places. As per the plan, the second day was for Anjuna Beach, lunch at Curlies Anjuna and drinks & dinner at LPK Waterfront Club, Candolim in the night.

So we took a bath, had breakfast in the hotel and started our Dhanno (scooters) to go Anjuna Beach. The distance was 10 kilometers from our hotel so it took us 45mts to reach there.

As per the plan, we had to go LPK Waterfront Club at night to experience Goa’s nightlife but unfortunately they were charging way too much for stag entry (i.e INR 4000 per person) which we considered not worth so we decided to go Baga Beach to have some tequila shots. We had our dinner there as well. We were partying till 2am and then went back to the hotel and slept.
