Best Places in Goa – Must Visit!

It’s been long overdue for a Goa Trip and I finally decided to pull it off. Planned with my friends but ended up going with my wife. It was fun nonetheless. So, here are the best places in Goa (according to me), which deserves your time and presence. I planned my stay in Radisson Blu Candolim and it was worth the price.

Aguada Fort


The first place I visited in Goa still holds strong in my mind. It was raining that day and added grandeur to the already bliss setting. With lots of greenery and sea backdrop, the fort stands tall with beautifully built structures.

Vagatoor Beach

Goa is known for its beautiful beaches. There are a hell lot of them. I visited a lot of beaches and found just a few among them worth visiting. Vagatoor Beach is one of the best beaches I’ve been to. A place that seems built for photography and has lots of shops just near the shore.

Panjim Boat Cruise

There are a lot of boat rides available in Goa. Then there is the Casino. But the casino can be visited only after 6 pm. You’ll have dances and party over there.

This boat cruise for about 40 minutes costs Rs.300 per person and is totally worth it. You’ll be educated with famous movies that were shot there in nearby boats/ships and other ancient builds. Totally worth it!

The Basilica of Bom Jesus is a beautiful place. Besides being a very scenic spot, there are lots of things to explore and learn. There was a service going on and the chorus lit the surrounding. FYI – I visited the place on a Monday, around 5 pm.

The driver suggested us this place and as it was humid outside, I thought of giving this snow park a go. It was an amazing visit. Loved the chillness and the way things were put up. There was a bar inside and that added much more fun element.

Mangeshi Temple

A place filled with calmness and peace. Loved this temple. The road to Temple has a lot of shops and is worth spending money and time on. Don’t forget to yum the wine chocolates!

Spice Farm

This is a medicinal farm. The place is filled with greenery everywhere and the guide will educate you on the medicinal benefits of the different variety of plants on a short tour inside the field. There is a separate store where you can purchase plant oils and other healthy drinks. They also have a lot of showcase items in the store. They have a buffet lunch organized for the visitors and is yummy!

Another beach I enjoyed visiting. There was a lot happening around. Few kabaddi matches. basketball matches and police shouting at young guys going beyond a point. Lots of restaurants to choose from.

I find these places to be the best places in Goa that deserve your time. There are a lot of other places in Goa like the Chapora Fort and Wax Museum. But I Didn’t find anything special in them. The road to Chapora Fort is a traffic hub. We had to wait for more than an hour to exit the Chapora Fort. I would suggest people visiting Goa to rent a car or bike and use their GPS to visit places there.
