Best of Goa

Goa is a kaleidoscopic blend of Indian and Portuguese cultures unfurling along a virtually uninterrupted string of golden-sand beaches. Dive into the best of all the brilliance that Goa has to offer.

SIGHTS

Agonda Beach

Agonda’s beach is wide, quiet and picturesque, with a wildlife centre at the northern end protecting precious Olive ridley sea turtle eggs. For a sunset walk or a long lazy day, Agonda encapsulates romantic Goa at its very best.

Anjuna Beach

Anjuna’s charismatic, narrow beach runs for almost a mile from the rocky, low-slung cliffs at the northern village area down beyond the flea market in the south. When the tide goes out, it becomes a lovely – and often surprisingly quiet – stretch.

Basilica of Bom Jesus

(Old Goa Rd, Bainguinim, Old Goa)

Famous throughout the Roman Catholic world, the imposing Basilica of Bom Jesus contains the tomb and mortal remains of St Francis Xavier, the so-called Apostle of the Indies.

Braganza House

(Chandor)

Braganza House, built in the 17th century and stretching along one whole side of Chandor’s village square, is the biggest Portuguese mansion of its kind in Goa. Granted the land by the King of Portugal, the Braganza family built this oversized house, which was later divided into the east and west wings when it was inherited by two sisters from the family.
