BEST BEACHES FOR FOREIGNERS IN GOA

 

A common recurrence every year in the naturally decorated city of Goa is the abundance of tourists, both local and foreign, when the winter comes. This happens in the wake of the warm winter days that the tourist’s paradise proposes which makes the climate ideal for a laid-back, relaxing vacation spot. The winds pleasantly grazing your face as you wander along the beach. The music spouting through your ears and the rhythm taking over you. The list never ends. Goa is a fan favourite among foreigners who travel to India. The carefree aura of the exquisite beaches and the placid waters offer the tranquility you are seeking. If the chaos of crowded beaches is something you wish to avoid, these are the beaches you are looking for.

Palolem Beach


Palolem is a snowy-looking white sand beach in South Goa. Decorated with palm trees, it oozes sheer beauty with its crescent shape and magical views. One can hop on a boat ride on the sea and cruise through the waves, or sunbathe under a beach hut and gorge on snacks and drinks. The water at this beach is safe for a dip, after which you can groove at the silent discos in Palolem’s vicinity that also keep the peace of this place intact.

Morjim Beach

 
Morjim Beach, also known as ‘Little Russia’, owing to its popularity between Russians, promises a serene experience distant from the crowds of Goa.
