Goa Area Guides

Everything you Need to Know about Goa Areas

While the capital of Goa is Panjim, the action is not in the city centre but on the beaches all along the coast of the Arabian Sea. Local 'Shacks' are seasonal structures that pop up on the beaches with the arrival of the first batch of tourists each year. Most of them are closed during the monsoon as the area gets decidedly waterlogged in rainy season. However in season the Shacks are strong competition to the permanent restaurants and eateries in the vicinity of the beaches.

To enjoy the beaches maybe it's best to take a long walk in the early morning sun. Most beaches melt into one another and it is possible to start walking at Fort Aguada and cross Candolim, Calangute and reach Baga before hitting a natural wall of rock that will end your progress. The Goan people are the most laid-back and relaxed lot in all of India. They love to party and in each house there is always someone who can play the guitar. The sound of music drifting on the evening breeze mingled with some singing is quite common here. Food is centre stage with non-vegetarian fare being quite the staple. Enjoy it all with a glass of your favourite tipple.
