Once a tiny Portuguese colony on the coast of India, Goa is now a haven for those looking for golden sandy beaches fringed by swaying palms, coconut trees and laid-back beach bars. Goa's architecture reflects its rich Portuguese heritage, with many buildings here looking as if they were lifted straight from Lisbon or Porto. Goa's cuisine is also a fusion of both Indian and Portuguese influences, with the Portuguese bringing their own unique style of cooking to the table - resulting in an exciting mix of flavours which will tantalise your taste buds. With 80 miles of coastline, there are plenty of beaches to explore on a Goa holiday,
which are lapped by the Arabian Sea to help wash away your city blues. Head to Calangute Beach for a bustling vibe and soaring waves or take a stroll along Palolem Beach, a not-so-well-kept secret beach nestled between two cliffs. Contrary to popular belief, Goa holidays have much more to offer than just beaches and bars. So to dig a little deeper, take a bike ride through Goa's Old Town for a glimpse into its rich history that spans centuries.
