    Map

    The state of Goa is India’s most well known beach destination. This former Portuguese colony with its many fabulous beaches offers a distinct cultural experience with it’s own music, food and climate. Our home base in Goa is situated near the Majorda beach in southern Goa. The 30 km long beach is known for its palm trees and silvery sand and is one of the best yet less explored regions
