    What to Do at Night in Goa

    Given Goa's recent history as a place where hordes of hippies 'turned on, tuned in and dropped out' one would be forgiven for thinking that a typical Goan nightlife scenario would have a lot to do with dancing half-naked around a beach campfire but no; Goa surprises in that it is a popular casino destination so dreadlocks and sarongs are replaced by well-groomed hair and formal clothing.

    This is the site of India's only on-board casino as well as various other gaming joints. But of course the campfires and dancing (in season) are ubiquitous along the coastline and are as free and easy as the sea breezes that cool this delightful coast down.

Casino Goa

This is India’s only live gaming casino located on board a luxury ship. There are two cruises daily. The dusk cruise lasts from 17:30 to 20:00 and will cost you about ten dollars per person. The dinner cruise is from 19:30 to 06:00 and will cost almost thirty dollars per person.

Any money you spend on the tables is extra. On some nights you may also be entertained by a live Russian belly dancer. There is a dress code so please dress accordingly. No children are allowed on board, so you will need to make separate arrangements for them.

  • Location: Set on a small luxury ship called MV Caravela, in Panaji Jetty opposite Hotel Madovi.

Beaches

The typical nightlife of Goa is played out on the beaches, in the shacks and popular eateries. There is no need to go hunting for a club to dance at as with the dusk each shack on the beach will crank up the volume and start playing music. Some play Bollywood numbers others have western pop and rock. Pick one you like and join the group dancing on the sand near the shack.

Situated in the hotel Cidade De Goa it is quite a distance if you are living near any of the north Goa beaches. Yet if you are planning to make an evening of it, make sure you dress well as they have a strict dress code.

Discos and Night Clubs

These are more permanent structures than the shacks on the beach and also offer a good time. A few of the more popular ones include The Alcove at Vagator Beach which is open till midnight. Also located on Vagator is Temptations, at the Red Cab Inn, below Starco’s Crossroads.

At Baga there is nothing to beat Tito’s for both food and music. If you are at Colva beach you can head for Ziggy’s and Johnny Cool’s. Both of which are open till only 22:00. At Men Mar on Vasco road and Lido’s at Dona Paula beach the action lasts till 22:30.

Here’s a list of the most popular beaches in Goa.

Las Vegas

This one is closer to the central part of Goa and is more popular as a result. The casino is lively enough. Again make sure that you are dressed properly or risk being asked to leave.
