Goa is the ideal place to have the time of your life, whether you’re traveling with friends, family, or alone. Every town has its own distinct selling point, and the nicest thing about Goa is that whatever you do is unlike anything else in India. So, if you’re planning a vacation to Goa, don’t forget to check out these 13 wonderful things to do in Goa.
Goa is blessed with all of nature’s splendors, from beaches to architectural marvels, water sports to adventure activities.
Top 13 activities you can perform in Goa
1. Go Canyoning in the waterfalls
Take a break from your crazy parties the next time you’re in Goa and go canyoning. Upper Sauri Canyon is a sequence of six waterfalls and narrow gorges that you may visit. You must traverse the canyon cliffs via walking, jumping, and abseiling. Palolem in South Goa is another site. You can spend the day leaping from the waterfalls, sliding down them, and cascading down them.
2. Try your luck at Casino Cruises
Gambling is permitted in Goa, one of India’s few gambling-friendly states. Casinos may be located on boats docked in the Mandovi River and in posh hotels on land in Goa. The floating casinos, which are entertainment attractions in and of themselves, host the majority of the activity with live tables. Onshore casinos are only allowed to feature electronic games by legislation.
3. Go dolphin seeing on the Palolem Beach
You will be able to watch some of Goa’s most lively and social aquatic dolphins during our Dolphin Sightseeing trip. Spend time with your friends and family shooting photographs while appreciating the water’s surroundings.
4. Bathe through an ‘elephant shower’
Elephants that are no longer considered wild have been domesticated, and they require the same level of care and attention as other home pets. If elephants are released into the wild, it will be very difficult to connect with them like we do at Elephant Jungle Sanctuary. The mud spa and elephant bathing are just ways for us to demonstrate to the elephants that we genuinely care about them.
5. Holistic Healing with Ayurvedic treatments in the Keri village of Goa
Ayurveda is well-known in Keri Village, Goa. Ayurveda was practiced by all generations of the Vaidya family at Keri Village. Ayurveda, which is founded on ancient Indian ‘Vedic philosophies’ and has been practiced for over 3,000 years, is one of today’s most popular and fastest-growing alternative therapies. Ayurvedic medicine takes a different approach to healing by evaluating the person and his or her lifestyle.
6. Shop at the flea market in Mapusa
Since ancient times, Mapusa Market has been one of Goa’s most important trading and retail centres. Indeed, it is said that the market rose to such prominence that the town that built up around it was generated from the market’s activities. The terms “map” (which means “to measure”) and “sa” (which means “to fill up”) are combined to produce the word Mapusa in Konkani.
7. Dance in the middle of the market on the market DJ at Daniel’s Bar in Arpora
We all dance at home, at bars, clubs, parties, and halls – but have you ever considered dancing in the midst of a market or on a street? Make sure you don’t miss out on Arpora’s fascinating adventure.
8. Be enchanted at the Butterfly Conservatory in Ponda
Who can resist the allure of the multi-coloured butterflies fluttering about them? Have we not all attempted to capture them as children? Have we not marvelled at these delicate beings with so many hues? The Butterfly Conservatory of Goa is the result of one family’s efforts to build a butterfly refuge…
9. Romantic getaway on a cruise
Cruising is one of the greatest ways to spend your vacation in Goa. These Goa cruises will not only give you a memorable experience, but they will also let you see a distinct aspect of the state. With a glass of champagne in one hand and your love in the other, take in the breath-taking sights of the ocean. I hope you don’t get motion sickness since it will ruin your enjoyment.
10. Do Oceanic Yoga at The Mandala
The Mandala Resort is a one-of-a-kind destination developed by international artists and designers. It’s a location where unassuming luxury coexists peacefully with nature, and where a relaxed environment and quiet are valued.
Peace, nature, kindness, wonderful food and drink, a variety of Yoga activities, and quiet may all be found at the Mandala.
11. Visit the largest church in Old Goa – Sé de Santa Catarina
Sé is a Portuguese word that means “to see.” The Se Cathedral was erected to commemorate the Portuguese victory over a Muslim force led by Afonso de Albuquerque, which resulted in the conquering of Goa in 1510. The church was dedicated to Saint Catherine because the day of the triumph fell on her feast day.
12. View the Ruins of Cabo De Rama and the Breath-taking view of the sea
Drive to the far south of Goa, down a muddy off-road road to the sea’s edge, and prepare to see the splendour of the past – the Cabo de Rama fort. The fort is situated between Cavelossim and Agonda, two of South Goa’s most popular beaches.
Both Hindu and Portuguese monarchs were involved in the construction of this fort. As a result, you will have the opportunity to learn about the architectural marvels of many nations. One way leads to the fort’s summit, while the other leads to the fort’s on-site church.
13. Go Secluded Island hopping on Ferry rides
The island’s fascination begins early. An isolated speck in the ocean, frilled by palm palms, lapped by deep-blue seas, and (presumably) sheltering pirates, parrots, and hidden gold is the stuff of childhood fantasies. For many of us, this fascination continues throughout adulthood. There’s something about the sensation of escape and seclusion that comes with being on an island, the feeling of entering a different universe, and the opportunity for adventure.
