Instagram Worthy Locations in Goa

About the Author:

Goa is a special place for Content Writer, Sheryl Gonsalves, with its picturesque beaches, gorgeous sunsets, rich heritage, and delicious food.

Goa was worth visiting even before Instagram existed. However, getting those ‘likes’ pouring in for your vacation photos is an added bonus. Don’t know where to start? Don’t worry… we’ve curated an insta-worthy list of places for you.


This goes without saying. Capture beautiful sunsets, burst shots of you jumping in the water, and selfies while lying down in the warm sand. If you want pictures in less crowded beaches I would suggest Morjim, Keri, Betul, Cavelossim, Mandrem, Butterfly beach and many more. If not, head down to happening beaches in Calangute, Anjuna, Candolim, Vagator, and Arambol.

Anyone can get good food in various places, but think about food along with a beautiful indoor or outdoor view! If you want to get gorgeous shots during your culinary adventures in Goa, visit Amrapali house of Grace (a Portuguese home with a waterfront view), Purple Martini (where you get gorgeous sunsets and delicious food), Morgan’s Place (Italian food and an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ theme), Old Bombay (aesthetic interiors and yummy morsels), Thalassa (sunsets, waterfront views, and Greek food), etc.

Panjim City

Goa’s capital city has many Instagrammable spots. You can get good pictures of the Atal Setu Bridge and the Mandovi River, especially at night, when the bridge is lit up and cruise ships glow in the river. Sunaparanta Art Gallery, Mangrove Boardwalk, Bhagawan Mahavir Bal Vihar Park Panaji, and the Panjim church are beautiful places to see.

Another famous spot is FontainhasGoa’s old Latin Quarter– which has quaint narrow streets and colourful architecture. Unleash your creativity by posing near charming windows, doorways, and arty stairs. If you want to explore more, take a free ferryboat ride from Panjim to Divar Island which is full of lush greenery.

Fed up of clicking those typical beach photos? Then stopover at some museums. ‘Museum of Goa’ has a miniature coconut mountain, beautiful paintings, a seashells exhibit, and more.  ‘Houses of Goa’ Museum has a quirky shape. Its interior has spiral staircases, architectural exhibits, and charming brick walls. The Archaeological Museum, Goa State Museum, and Museum of Christian Art are noteworthy places as well.

Forts? Yes!

There are a couple of forts in Goa, but if I had to select the most picturesque ones, I would choose Reis Magos fort, Cabo de Rama Fort, and the Sinquerim fort.

I have 3 words for them… powerful, beautiful, and majestic. The Dudhsagar waterfall perfectly captures those 3 words as it’s one of the tallest waterfalls in Goa. Some other gorgeous ones to visit are the Tambdi Surla falls, Kesarval Falls, Harvalem waterfall, and Charavne waterfall.
