The must-visit beach and the reason for it:

Divar Island for the river crossing experience and for its beautiful houses and village roads.

Your favourite local Goan food place:

Star Bar at Old Goa. Don’t mind the setting, just go for the food.

Your secret spot in Goa:

Cola Beach and Lagoon. Not on the tourist map until recently. Still has its exotic appeal.

Cabo de Rama. The panoramic view is a bonus.

Where would you want to get lost in Goa:

The nicest drive you would never miss:

The best place to experience wildlife in Goa is:

Mollem National Park.

One quintessential Goan experience, you must have is:
