The must visit beach and reason for it-
While in Goa, Majorda Beach is a must visit. I love it for its beautiful stretch of white sand and the beach shacks for
some delicious food.
A not to miss non- beach place in Goa – I love visiting forts.
So, one of my favorite non-beach places would be Cabo de Rama fort
in Cola South Goa. I also love walking the streets of Panjim. The narrow lanes lined with colorful Portuguese houses transport me to the colonial era.
Your favorite local Goan food place –
Spice Studio at Alila Diwa Goa. I simply love Goan food but I have a challenge with very spicy food. Spice Studio is one restaurant where I know they will prepare it to my preferences and never disappoint me.
Your favorite Goan dish and where to have it –
Prawn Kismur and Chicken Cafreal are two of my favorite Goan dishes that I indulge in at Spice Studio
Your secret spot in Goa –
My secret spot would be the Gonsua Beach which is the perfect place to experience a mesmerizing sunset as well. It’s a quiet and beautiful white sand beach. There are few shacks and does not get very crowded.
If you are in Goa for a day –
If I was in Goa for a day, I’d like to spend it in the South of Goa.
I’d start with a swim in the pool in my resort, witness the sunrise and find the perfect spot for a hearty breakfast.
I’d hire a scooter and spend the day visiting the beautiful churches and forts, walking around in Panjim, gaze by the Mandovi river while enjoying the delicious chaat at the pop-up chaat counters.
Your favorite place for an evening tipple –
Where would you let your hair down and party –
Silent Party at Palolem Beach.
Best place to watch the sunset-
Where would you want to get lost in Goa –
I can easily lose myself in the nature trails in Goa. I love trekking and would find spots where I can just walk, climb and probably discover some new spots.
The nicest drive you would never miss –
Panjim to Palolem. The stretch is so green, beautiful and smooth. I especially love riding.
A heritage site you wouldn’t miss –
