Attend Music Festivals

Goa is quite popular among those that enjoy attending music festivals. Sunburn Goa is one of the most anticipated music festivals featuring some of the best electronic music artists from across the globe. Taking place towards the end of the year, thousands of tourists from across the country travel to be a part of the celebrations. Sing, dance, and end the year in style as you create memories that will last a lifetime.

Explore the Goan Hinterland

Goa in winter season is perfect for those that love stepping outdoors. Before the onset of the winter season, most outdoor activities are not accessible due to the heavy rains. Exploring the Goan hinterlands is an ideal way to make use of the pleasant weather.

The hinterlands might not be popular among the majority of tourists that visit Goa, but it is the perfect way to understand the culture of this place. People are more in-tune with nature, and spending time here will help you unwind, relax, and take a break from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Spend a day or two to truly appreciate the serene ambience and the lush greenery around you.

Goan Heritage

Goa is home to some of the most beautiful churches and forts, representing its rich cultural heritage. The Basilica of Bom Jesus is an elegant church built in the 17th century. It’s of great importance since it contains the tomb and mortal remains of an important missionary, St. Francis Xavier. Fort Aguada too was built in the 17th century and was crucial in protecting the land from the Dutch. Watching the waves of the Arabian sea crash against the mighty walls of Fort Aguada as you soak in the gentle sea breeze is a wonderful experience.

Caravela Beach Resort Goa provides the quintessential Goan experience, leaving you with memories that you will never forget. Kick back and gaze at the never-ending blanket of azure skies as you rejoice in the company of your loved ones while sipping on a finely-crafted beverage made just for you.
