Turquoise blue waters touching forts, lush green landscape edges the golden coastline, Old churches, Rivers, Islands, Portuguese colony, Waterfalls every thing is about one, THE BEACH CAPITAL OF INDIA-GOA. It’s a perfect weekend trip with friends or families or to relax on beach with your partner. Goa has more than enough to make you fall in love with it.

Goa is a state in western India with coastlines of Arabian Sea,Konkan region.It is smallest state,biggest tourist destination.Goa has popular beaches Baga to fishing villages such as Agonda.Many movies were shot here.

Other than beaches,kids to elders there is something for every one to do.There is a bad opinion about Goa for family travellers that most of foreigners occupy beaches shacks for sunbath.But it happens in peak season,at famous beaches like Baga,Anjuna.So avoid them when you travel with family.Here I share my Goa Dairies.
