Beachfront holiday rental accommodation Goa, India

Hugging the Arabian Coastline, lined with palm trees, sandy beaches and crystal clear water, lies the magical Indian state of Goa. Famous not only for its 2 World Heritage Sites, but also for its laid back lifestyle and picture perfect surroundings, Goa is a sensational experience no matter who you are. Over 2 million visitors a year descend on the coastal state to enjoy the climate, the people, the food and the culture, and affordable holiday accommodation and holiday villas are constantly in high demand. Prominent local festivals like Diwali and The Goan Carnival and New Year celebration bring visitors in their droves, year after year.

4 of the best activities in Goa

Beach parties:

Nobody else can throw such epic beach parties like the Goans. Right through the year, music festivals and trance parties continue right through the night, and seem to carry on forever, like the pristine white beaches themselves. If you were hoping for a restful nap and a cup of tea, it may not be advisable to choose one of the beach huts as part of your holiday accommodation, as the nights are forever young and don’t always end at dawn. Anyway you swing it, Goa nights are simply superb. Calangute, Anjuna, Miramar, Dona Paula and Palolem are great spots to rent holiday properties during your stay.

Scuba Diving:

The sun is shining, the Arabian Sea is clear and the water is warm; 3 of the most perfect conditions for one of the most perfect diving spots in the world. Diving is best out of monsoon season (middle of October to May) and you may need something a bit bigger than a postcard to write home all about the amazing sea life you see in one day. The best places to find holiday apartments or holiday villas, if a diving adventure is on the card is a beach hut or Goa villa in Panjim, Candolim or Pigeon Island.

Cultural Interest:

There is literally an abundance of activities in a cultural feast that seems to permanently be on the go all over Goa. Festivals, museums, dancing, the arts and even a wax museum keep the state humming constantly. Whether it is a religious or cultural festival, music celebration or even the Naval Aviation Museum, there is actually quite a substantial amount to do other than grab a suntan and a cocktail.

The World Heritage Sites are the Bom Jesus Basillica and the Churches and Convents of Old Goa, are sights to behold. The Basillica holds the mortal remains of St. Francis Xavier, and once every 12 years, the body is taken down for veneration and public viewing, the last time being 2004. Even if you are a party animal, you may want to book an extra night at your holiday villa, if you can get a chance to be part of such an historical event.

Nature:

As one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots, Goa is home to millions of square metres of Equitorial Forest cover, which amounts to covering over 50% of the entire geographical area. There are wildlife sanctuaries in abundance, hosting some 1512 documented species of plants alone and over 275 species of birds, including kingfishers, mynahs and parrots. Deep in the jungles of Goa, animals such as fox, wild boar and migrating birdlife are found to be living protected, as most of the forest cover is owned by the government.

Tours through the wildlife sanctuaries are not to be missed, embrace the opportunity to get up close and personal with birds and animals, as you discretely watch from the forts and watchtowers at your leisure, but be careful of snakes in Goa, they are plentiful, but they keep the rodent population at bay.

Explore Panaji

Goa’s capital and central hub is Panaji. Here you’ll find an eclectic diversity of religious sites and ancient royal edifices that although crumbling and mysterious, still stand to this day. Affectionately known as the Town of Shades, for its soft colours of the holiday villas, majestic shades of sunset and vibrant shades of Latin America and the bustling shades of India, this is stop not to be missed.

The Goan Climate

The decidedly different phases of the Goan climate may require some clever planning for visitors not wanting to arrive, sun hat in hand, during the monsoon season. From November to May, blissfully summer days with temperatures up to 32C/ 90F will be just the right back drop for those coming for the sun, the sea and the diving. From late May to early October, Monsoon Season is in full swing, and visitors may be going home without a tan, and without being able to take out their diving gear out of its packaging.

I couldn't speak more highly of my experience staying in Mandrem at Sandeep's property. He was there

5 of 5
I couldn't speak more highly of my experience staying in Mandrem at Sandeep's property. He was there when my partner and I arrived, helped us get settled in, drove us into town, helped us arrange a scooter rental, and was polite and attentive throughout our three week stay. The property itself was a fantastic place to stay for two people, quiet and peaceful. I also highly recommend visiting the small shop across the street. A woman named Vandana runs the place and is extremely kind and welcoming.
