Nightlife in Goa

The nightlife in Goa is diverse; in the evenings, guests have the choice of relaxing in their hotel or enjoying dinner and drinks in a wide range of restaurants and bars either nearby or a short taxi ride away, while your Goa holiday can enjoy more energetic nights out by visiting some of the state's vibrant clubs.  

The most vibrant nightlife in Goa can be found in the North of the state in resorts such as Calangute and Baga, where there are plenty of bustling beach shacks, lively bars and the occasional nightclub to discover during your holiday in Goa. The resorts in the South have a much more relaxed and laid-back feel to their Goan nightlife, with just a handful of restaurants and bars.
