Why we love Goa...

Cola Beach in Goa

1. A gentle introduction to India...

For a wonderfully hot winter sun holiday and a gentle introduction to the Indian sub-continent, Goa is hard to beat. The exotic flavours of India are mixed with the familiar feel of European destinations, giving a unique and memorable Goa package holiday experience.

2. A vibrant culture and rich history...

Having been a Portuguese colony for over 400 years, there is a unique and distinct culture to discover during Goa holidays, blending the ancient traditions of India with colonial influences from the Portuguese. All over the state you will find Hindu and Christian architecture side by side, from intricate Hindu temples and whitewashed churches to colourful Portuguese Heritage homes in soft pistachio and lemon.

3. Did we mention the beaches?

This is where India meets the Arabian Sea, and Goa’s coastline is blessed with some of the most striking beaches. For such a small state, it offers an impressive array of beach resorts. Bustling golden shores in the north are backed by colourful makeshift beach shacks, serving everything from fresh and tasty street food and refreshments through to handmade souvenirs. Moving to the south, secluded powder white sands are often lined by plush palm trees which stretch all the way along the coast. We're confident that for the beach lovers, Goa holidays have plenty to offer.

4. The food, ah, the food...

Goan cuisine is a fantastic fusion of Indian and Portuguese flavours, is distinct to this region and one of the most alluring charms of Goa holidays. The likes of rich creamy coconut milk is infused with aromatic herbs and fresh spices and often served with locally caught fish and fluffy white rice. Make sure you try the most popular dish, a traditional Goan fish curry. 

5. There's so much to see during Goa holidays

Away from the beguiling beaches and the inviting hotel swimming pools, Goa is a varied and exciting state to explore. We offer a great number of excursions that will enable you to discover the whole state, whether you wish to see the tallest waterfalls, the fragrant spice plantations or the historic marvels of the old city. Don't forget our add-on India Tours for the more adventurous - exploring the Golden Triangle and the tigers of Ranthambore National Park is just the beginning. 

 

We were so pleased with our holiday; thinking of going back for Christmas/New Year.
