Less travelled beaches of Goa

Image courtesy:prajna LS
 What comes to your mind when you hear of Goa? Beaches of course! Goa, being one of the popular destinations for holidaying on the sea shore, attracts millions of tourists every year. One will not get tired of visiting Goa, be it for a casual or a formal visit. Goa indeed is a tourist’s heaven by providing a true freak out time. Have fun, celebrate, be merry, relax and rejuvenate in Goa. It is that part of India which is the most explored one; yet, one will be surprised to know it is still left with unmarked corners. 

This article makes an attempt to introduce some of the unexplored parts of Goa, focusing especially upon beaches. If you are on a family trip and want to spend some fun times with kids, then visit commercialized beaches in Goa. These beaches provide snacks stalls, water sports, and other entertainments like paragliding, scuba diving, kayaking etc. Goa hosts both commercialized and secluded beaches. Most of the commercialized beaches are situated in the North Goa whereas South Goa hosts most of the secluded ones.

Goa, situated on the western coastline of India, is best known for white sand beaches, churches, temples, and fenny! It is well connected by air, road and railways. It may sound funny, if you search for a city named Goa anywhere in Goa you would not find. Goa is the name given to the entire region on the Arabian Sea coast comprising North and South Goa. So, where would you land up if you are an outsider? You may choose either Panjim in North Goa or Madgaon in the South Goa section as base destinations to travel around the region. 
Panjim is the headquarters of North Goa which is at about 550 km from Mumbai. Madgaon, headquarters of South Goa, is just 45 minutes drive from Panjim. However the airport is based at Dabolim in Vasco, 35 minutes drive from Panjim. Goa has two railway heads: one at Vasco, the other at Madagaon which is connected by Konkan Railway services.
Rental cars, tourist taxis, rental bikes, autos and buses are available for inland travels. Accommodations providing budget, luxury and premium services would be easily available during off season. Advance booking of hotels would be preferable if you are travelling during Christmas vacations. 
If you are interested in exploring secluded beaches in Goa, let me tell you, go towards the south. Make Madagaon the base destination, and explore each beach a day if you are there for more than a week. Southern beaches are less travelled, least crowded, and most of them provide completely secluded private beach resorts. 
Let us start with Colva Beach which is situated near Madgaon city. It is just 15 minutes drive from Madgaon (Margao). This was one of the secluded beaches of South Goa up until recently. Now, it is attracting more and more visitors and hence it has become a popular beach providing entertainment and luxury. It is stretched 20 km on the Western Coast.

Colva Beach

If we move towards the south of Colva, we find the Benaulim Beach. You can locate the Church of St John the Baptist here on a hill top. This is basically a fishing village. You can buy wooden crafts and furniture here. 
Cavelossium Beach is just half an hour drive from Madgaon. This beach, along with Varca and Mobor beaches, is known to be the most non-commercialized beaches of Goa. A Less crowded beach of course. You may find huts converted as restaurants here and there.

Goa is stretched up to Sadashivghad, but Sadashivghad belongs to Karwar district in Karnataka. Sadashivghad is the place where Kali River merges into Arabian Sea. As we move on to further southwards, we find two most important beaches on the western coast situated in Goa. One is Agonda Beach and other one is the Palolem Beach.

Agonda Beach

Palolem Beach

Agonda is situated at about 35 km from Madgaon. This is for those who would love lonely beaches. Agonda beach is completely untouched by commercialization. You would not find any snacks stalls or accommodation here. It is a lonely white sand beach good for photographers who would like to explore wild and raw nature. 

Palolem beach is at about 40 km from Madgaon and is a bit inhabited beach.  You would find quite a few beach resorts, secluded huts and commercial stalls here. Another advantage is that you can have a boat ride to visit nearby islands. Be careful about high tides and weather conditions. 
 If you are frequent visitor to Goa, make your holidays something special when you visit Goa next time. Explore the South Goa. Be different this time!

Travel through


Gone are those strenuous and lengthy naval expeditions for the exploration of unknown territories. Today we fly over oceans in a few hours! We travel through countries and travel across borders. We travel for recreation, business, and also for an exploration of unknown places. Basically, to travel means to move from one place to another that we all know.
Did you know that the word ‘travel’ was derived from the old French term called ‘travail’? Interestingly, ‘travail’ means ‘to toil hard’ or a ‘laborious task’. In the past, traveling was considered a laborious task due to the hardships one had to go through while traveling from one place to another.

image credit: youtravelbritain.com

The term was largely referred to ‘exploration’ of new places. People traveled on barefoot, in carts and manual carriages. One can imagine the difficulties of passing through thick jungles, wild forests, mountain valleys and desert having no hopes for a ‘safe return’. Today, a traveler stumbles upon countless tea shops and restaurants at every stop to fill his empty stomach. Truly it was a ‘laborious task’ for our ancestors to travel.
Even amidst such hardships some of our brave ancestors took up expeditions and kick started the exploration of unknown territories because of which the world looks so small a place to invent anything new now! One needs no vehicles to travel through these days. Wondering how?
All of us are explorers now on the net. We travel through and across borders in a second. No hardships. We cull information about travel destinations, book vehicles and tickets, reserve accommodation and all that takes no time.
I am not a travel enthusiast, most of my expeditions are of recreational kind, and family oriented trips. Love to sit and sip in a couch at a corner of my sweet home and I do travel through my mind, and try to reach across all depths of my inner world.
So, you guess, the word ‘travel’ travels through barriers of time and place!! Still wonder…what leads one to move from one place another. Why does one ‘travel’?

Mother’s day, father’s day, birthday, daughter’s day, rose day, valentine’s day, earth day, doctor’s day, engineer’s day……. The list would go on and on … the point in counting some of this special occasion’s day is Bridge day is coming near, 19th October. To be honest I have not heard about it before some days.

It is on the Hooghly River. This bridge connects Kolkata and Howrah. Its official name has been change to Rabindra setu but it is famously known as the Howrah Bridge. Whenever there is mention of Kolkata, there are writers, poets and art, right from Ravindranath Tagore a Nobel Prize winner in literature to high end fashion designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee.

  • Golden bridge

    It is a bridge in Gujarat state. It joins the Ankaleshwar and Bharuch. It was built by British Govt. The name Golden Bridge refers to the cost required at that time to build the bridge. But it is a marvelous structure standing well in condition even after going through Gujarat floods and earthquake. It is one of the longest cantilever types of the bridge. 
  • Godavari Rail Bridge/ Kovvur-Rajahmundrry Bridge
