Lulled by the waters of the Arabian Sea and with shady palms swaying in the breeze, Goa's relaxed pace of life has always made it an ideal introduction to India.

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.

Cuisine

Along with this diverse culture, Goa's cuisine, blending fresh seafood with coconut and cashew nuts, produces sumptuous dishes.

Hotels

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.
