While places like Vegas and Spain pique our interest, nothing beats a bachelor party in Goa! Everything is heartwarming, from the moment you start thinking about it to the moment you actually live this once-in-a-lifetime experience on your trip to Goa. If you’re looking for a place to go on your own, Goa is the place to go. There are moments in life when you simply must pack your sunscreen and head to the beach, and in India, that road usually leads to Goa. It doesn’t matter if you like the beach or not; Goa, with its magical ability to slow time and ridiculously delicious food, is the escape everyone needs.
Obviously, I mean c’mon. Goa is a beach state with many different beaches that vary in terms of the nature of their water and sand.
Beaches In South Goa Typically Have Warm Water:
The Beaches In North Goa Have A Bit More Wave:
- Morjim, and
These beaches have a bit more wave due to the odd bit of rock, but are still perfectly pleasant to paddle around in.
Things get murky in the middle, as they always do:
Central Goa, or more precisely Baga, is where the crowds congregate. Unfortunately, this includes wary men. Regardless of how much you’ve heard about Britto’s or Tito’s, you might want to avoid this beach due to the overcrowding, overdone-ness, and completely unwelcome leeches.
Food and Nightlife
If you enjoy food, especially seafood, you will fall in love with Goan cuisine. There are numerous options available, whether you are looking for fine dining restaurants with a fancy ambience or want to stay close to home.
Food in Goa:
- Freshwater fish
- Goan prawn curry
- Crabs and juicy chicken
- Xacutti (coconut-based curry)
- Cafreal (marinated and fried/grilled)
- Sorpotel (stew)
- Recheado (stuffed)
- Ambot tik (sour and spicy)
Believe me. You’ll end up trying every single one of these dishes, just like I did. These traditional recipes are bursting with homey authentic spice, flavours, and aromas that will speak directly to your heart.
Not to mention the Goan chourico (sausages) and Goan pao (bread). Unfortunately, traditional Goan cuisine is dwindling, but if you venture away from the beaches, you’ll find some authentic restaurants where you can learn about Goan cuisine. Also, the nightlife in Goa is fantastic for singles, which is why so many young people flock there, especially during the holidays.
Make new acquaintances
Because of the destination, which is a famous party hub, countless music festivals, international concerts, and a haven for artists of all kinds – Goa attracts thousands of young and young-at-heart visitors throughout the year. If you want to travel alone, Goa is one of the best places to go. There are many places best if you want to meet new people on the road, whether it is hotels, bars, cafes, or pubs.
Discover the magnificent Portuguese culture
Goa has it all: action, beauty, and peace. Here, you will discover a world beyond the tourist brochures. Walking down the streets, you will see houses and mansions made of red laterite stones and wood with terracotta roofs. Old museums, churches, art galleries, exhibitions, and bakeries will provide a glimpse into Goan history.
“He who has seen Goa need not see Lisbon,” it was said. The Portuguese constructed numerous churches and convents, which were designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1986. Se Cathedral (the seat of the Archbishop of Goa), the Basilica of Bom Jesus (which houses the mortal remains of Saint Francis Xavier), and the Church of Saint Francis of Assisi are among the most notable.
Goa is more than just live music and beach parties. It also discusses Ayurveda, Reiki, Meditation, and Therapeutic Yoga. There are other hotspots for yoga in the country, but the picturesque beaches as a backdrop are the icing on the cake. There are also many wellness-themed cafes in the city. Don’t worry, yoga classes are designed for people of all skill levels, from beginners to inexperienced. There are centres and yoga retreats, so going to Goa is your one-stop solution for relaxing and unwinding.
Be wary of the places you go to and parties you celebrate. Enjoyment is important but safety should always be a priority.
