Goa

 

To the south of Goa is its quieter, calmer and almost entirely hawker-free area. While walking along the coast here, one notices the stark black lava rocks on the bed of soft white sands. The landscape is offset by the seemingly endless rows of palm trees and wooden fishing boats. These belong to the Christian fishing community that lives here in palm-thatched long houses.

Popular beach resorts and the usual activities of sea bathing, dolphin watching and boating fuel tourism, the major reason behind this town’s self-sufficiency. Colonial Mansions, like villas and heritage houses, are located close to the beach.

Renowned for their beautiful architecture and natural surroundings, these structures represent the culture of Goa as well the lifestyle of the earlier Portuguese rulers.
