Hello Leisure lovers!
Waiting for that Goa trip for long? It’s time to tick it off.
Sun, Sea, Sand, Pubs, an Island trip, water sports, flea markets, a beautiful Church, picturesque architecture, and a little bit of history – all waiting for you at Goa!
In this 3 day trip to Goa, we will cover all important and happening places of North Goa. To name a few – Baga, Anjuna, Candolim, and Calangute beaches. We will indulge in water sports, and go on a boat trip to Monkey Island. Swimming and Snorkeling are the two activities travelers enjoy most on this Island trip along with unlimited drinks and food. As you already know, sunsets are a bliss from Goa beaches.
We will have a comfortable hotel stay close to a beach with all basic facilities like hot water, breakfast, and cozy beds.
Adding to the experience is pub-hopping at the most colorful Tito’s lane. A leisurely stroll at historical places like Bascilla of Bom Jesus and Panjim Conservation zone is the icing on the cake to end the trip on a memorable note.
