Beaches, Beers, Parties and Huts- These are the obvious things that come to our mind when we think of Goa. Undoubtedly, Goa is the party haven of India and millions of tourists from all over the world come to this beautiful state every year to party fiercely and spend a good time. However, Goa is full of cultural heritage and astonishing natural beauty and has a lot to offer for those wishing to visit its heart –Panjim. In this post, I will share 8 unique things to do in Goa that will help you explore the state (don’t worry! I am not taking you to the temples of South Goa) and enjoy it in its pristine form .
So here 8 offbeat things Next time you go to Goa, you can:
1. Stay in Panjim instead of Panjamut
Panjim is a beautiful city situated on the banks of the Mandovi River. Panjim, the capital of Goa, has colorful offices, streets, markets, and of course the charming cruise casino. The best part of the stay in Panjim is its central location. You can easily see North, South and Old Goa from here and the airport is also not far away.
You will find many heritage guesthouses that offer a home like accommodation. We were amazing Hospedaria Abrigo de Botelho Villa Which reflects traditional Portuguese architecture. The owner helped us plan our itinerary (until the last detail … so sweet! <3) and served a homemade superb buffet breakfast in the morning.
2. Take a walk on the colorful streets of Panjimo
The roads are full of colors and walking near the Mandovi river is a pleasure in itself. Don’t forget to stop at cashew shops and buy Bibinka (layered coconut cake) for your loved ones. You can come across colorful villas which are offices to the surprise of anyone. (Workplace goals I swear!)
3. Head to the Floating Casino in Panjimo
I had never been to any casino before so this was a completely new experience for me. We went Deltin Jacqui, However there are many casinos such as Deltain Royale and Casino Gaurav. These ships are anchored in the Mandovi River where they take you via motorboat. You can play Black Jack, Teen Patti, Poker and Roulette. If you’re a newbie like me, you’d better stick to simple games like Black Jack, get your free lunch and come back. The cost per person is Rs 2000 in which you get Rs 2000 gaming chips and unlimited drinks and food.
Fun facts: Casino operations have been legalized in only three states in India: Goa, Daman and Sikkim.
4. Visit the Heritage Churches of Old Goa
Visit very popular Basilica of Bom Jesus Church, Which is a bit touristy, especially if you go on Sundays. Even if you are not quite religious, but the architecture of this magnificent building will not disappoint you. Talking about architecture, you can go here Church of St. Augustine Ruins Which is walking distance from there.
5. Drive to South Goa and stop at Figueiredo Mansion
Figueredo Mansion There is a ancestral mansion in the village of Lutlim in South Goa. Nestled amidst the natural beauty of paddy fields and coconut trees, it is internally planned using the finest components around the world. The mansion gives a royal feel and is a must visit for those fascinated by the interior designs.
On the way you can have some delicious eclairs from famous and melting moments. District Bakery In lutlim (yum !!)
6. Enjoy the delicious Pedro Sea cuisine
PAdro’s Is a popular restaurant and is famous for its seafood. Located on Benaulim beach in South Goa, you can enjoy spectacular views of the waves crashing on the beach, from your favorite drink (cheaper than North Goa) and continental breakfasts to traditional Goan dishes such as Rava Masala Grill Fish and Goan Fish can even enjoy delicious food. Curry rice. The restaurant is a permanent beach hut and is open throughout the year.
7. Visit the northernmost beaches of Goa
Querim beach Goa has the northernmost coastline and is on the border of Goa and Maharashtra. It is very secluded, clean and peaceful, and is definitely a must visit in Goa. The drive from Anjuna to Querim is scenic and if you arrive in the evening, you may be lucky to see a picturesque sunset just like here.
8. See the spectacular views from the Reis Magos Fort
Rees Magos Fort Located on the northern bank of the Mandovi River and offers spectacular views of the sea from above. The fort is less crowded and is very well maintained by the authorities. Apart from the scenic views, exploring the fort and its many nooks and valleys brings back childhood memories of playing hide and seek. In my opinion, it is a miss-do-not-miss place in every itinerary of Goa.
After clicking the perfect photos in the fort, go to the nearby beachside hut- Babazin For a savory lunch (with a view). I would definitely recommend to be Goa With rice for lunch and Serradura For dessert.
There is no shortage of amazing offbeat things to do in Goa. I hope that the next time you travel, you will consider these alternative travel plans in your itinerary as well. 4
