Beaches and cultural influences
Home to some of the country's best-known and finest white sandy beaches, Goa is a cosmopolitan melting pot. The Dutch and Portuguese have both left their mark on the state while the pilgrimage site of St Francis Xavier’s tomb exemplifies the Catholic influence.
Along with this diverse culture, Goa's cuisine, blending fresh seafood with coconut and cashew nuts, produces sumptuous dishes.
North Goa is relatively lively with more hotels and regular markets, while south Goa is quieter and the hotels generally more spread out with large gardens.
With our in-depth knowledge of the area, we will be able to find the perfect property to match your requirements.
