10 Reasons you should visit Goa with your family this winter

Goa Family Trip

Yes, Goa means clubbing and partying with your friends till you drop; but Goa isn’t only that. It is about rich heritage and elegant Portuguese architecture. It is about the bountiful wildlife and the lip-smacking cuisine. Yes, we might have deduced Goa to a party place lately, but, it is so much more that that!

So, take a break from Tito’s and LPK this time and take your family to an amazing Goa trip! Let’s break some travel stereotypes.

A trip to the Basilica of Bom Jesus

Basilica of Bom Jesus is a UNESCO certified world heritage site that preserves the mortal remains of St. Francis Xavier.

Go for the architecture, go for the history!

Se Cathedral
One of the oldest structures of Old Goa, Sé Catedral de Santa Catarina was built to commemorate the victory of the Portuguese in 1510.


Wild Life Sanctuaries

Goa has an array of wild life sanctuaries offering a view and experience of some of the most exotic fauna of the region. Reserve a day or two just for these. Bondla, Bhagwan Mahavir, and Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary are a few of the best ones.

Dudhsagar Falls

The majestic Dudhsagar Falls is a must see. The gushing cascade of water across the ferocious mountains is one of the most mesmerising sights.

Fort Tiracol

Dil Chahta Hai must have made Fort Aguada mainstream leading to overcrowding; but Goa has a lot of hidden treasures that you can’t miss.

The secluded Tiracol or Terekhol is on the northern tip of Goa, totally worth the drive.



#ФортТираколь — скорее всего, самый маленький и совершенно точно — наиболее сохранившийся из всех фортов штата Гоа. Кстати, к Гоа он относится лишь юридически — территориально это уже Махараштра. Форт совсем крошка и обойти его можно буквально за 5 минут. Форт был построен в 17 веке на отвесном склоне одноименной реки. Что и говорить, местоположение оказалось очень удачным: ни один уголок побережья Аравийского моря не был скрыт от наблюдения. На крепостной стене располагались 12 пушек, а возле нее — небольшая часовня и несколько домов. Тираколь долгое время контролировали португальцы, и лишь в 1954 г. над его башнями поднялся флаг Индии. Сегодня территория форта полностью реконструирована — здесь находится фешенебельный отель. Но внутренний дворик выглядит так же, как и сотни лет назад: в самом центре стоит небольшая церковь Св. Андрея в португальском колониальном стиле и его же статуя напротив. #littlehistory #maharashtra #fort #view #bamballeilo #tirakolfort

Lip smacking cuisine

Right from their sea food to the distinct southern taste of their overall cuisine, Goan food is to die for.
