It's Goa's longest beach. Twelve miles of powder fine white sand on the Arabian Sea.
Colva beach in Goa is usually less crowded. There are many shacks lined up along the Colva beach which offers you delicious Goan cuisine to be washed down by innovative cock-tails. Sit in one of those shack, savour the mouth-watering food while looking at the vast sea in front of you.
Goa Calangute beach is also called the 'Queen of Beaches'. Under the shade of palm trees, bathes the Queen of Beaches-Calangute. Goa's Calangute seems to be a distortion of the local vernacular word-'Koli-gutti', which means land of fishermen. Some people connect it with Kalyangutti (village of art) or Konvallo-ghott (strong pit of the coconut tree) because the village is full of coconut trees.
Goa Candolim beach is less crowded and a quiet beach when compared to Anjuna or Calangute. Though tourists quite often frequent Candolim beach, you can still find some quiet places for yourself.
Goa Candolim beach offers various water-sports activities-right from parasailing to water-skiing. Goa Candolim beach also arranges special beach excursions wherein you are taken right to the middle of the sea from where you can capture some memorable sunsets.
The Sea Princess is an old ship which has been abandoned from the past few years.
We went on a short and sweet cruise in Goa. Basically it was an entertainment cruise with many Goan native Dances in the beginning. Also many popular Hindi songs were sung by them. Later couples were called on stage for dancing. Later all the chairs were removed and everyone started dancing, great fun!
