Holidays in Goa Beach Goa
The sands on the beach have seen her through her each joy, her each sorrow. The wind sings her ballads as the dances to her music. Men come & men go, leaving their footprints on the sand... and waves come in and wash them away. For eternity is not man, not even time. Eternity is a sandy beach, blue skies and a bluer ocean........ Goa is eternity."

Golden beaches , blue skies and Pale Green hills. Silvery sands fringed with palms....... This is Goa. A magnificent hybrid of oriental occidental baroque architecture set in a tropical landscape ..... This is Goa. The Gods living side by side in their temples, churches and mosques...... This is Goa. International cuisine with local flavours. Seafood, Feni and fruits are the spices of life. ......... This is Goa. The Land of Paradoxes, the Land of Fun and Frolic, of Calm and Tranquility, , of hard work and harder play ...... this is Goa.

Goa's over 100-km coastline is studded with some of the world's loveliest beaches. Their beauty stirs the soul, and even their names are lyrical.... Calangute, Colva, Betul, Baga, Vagator and Miramar. Skirted with casuarinas and fringed with palms, they stand calmly with sylvan backdrops of rolling hills. In the distant horizon, a sweep of azure blue touches the sky as the small fishing villages lazily go about their day's work.
