Discover North Goa

Framed by two magnificent rivers - The Mandovi and The Terekhol, North Goa is home to a striking coastline, dotted with vibrant and bustling beachfront resorts.

Tourism is well established in the north of Goa, giving the region its own unique charm and character. Soft golden sands line the shores and are backed by colourful makeshift beach shacks and coconut palms whilst just inland, villages come alive with local restaurants, lively bars and craft stalls. The region hosts some of the best markets in the state including the bohemian Anjuna Flea market, the Mapusa local produce market and the lively Saturday Night market at Arpora.
