Goa is the  smallest state of India but it is known all over the world for it's scenic beauty and attractive beaches. Every year thousands of tourists from both overseas and from other states of India visit Goa. Goa has a coastline of 105 Kms and is gifted with some beautiful beaches. Some of the more notable ones are Arambol beach, Tiracol beach, Velsao Beach and Palolem beach, where you can still find a piece of paradise.

You don't have to go far to reach these places. All the five star hotels in Goa are located at the beach front such as the Fort Aguada Hermitage ( Sinquerim beach) , Leela Palace at Mobor beach and Marriott Goa at Miramar beach. But there are also an incredible number of lodges and Inns located very close to the beaches. Some local entrepreneurs have set up beach shacks on the beaches and provide food, drink and beach umbrellas. Recently, for some unknown reason, the government had imposed restrictions on the beach shacks, but has become lenient again considering the large number of tourists who frequent these shacks for food, drink and entertainment that are offered at down to earth prices.

 A interesting way to spend your holidays in Goa is to visit and enjoy each and every beach beginning from north to south Goa ! Calangute, Anjuna, Vagator, Arambol, Colva and Miramar are the names of some of the beaches that are world famous. 

You'll find more pictures of Goa's beaches in the Photo Gallery section of this website.
