The experience of visiting Goa is outstanding. It was a three day festival. My team was incharge of the health and safety of the visitors and they were around 2 lacs. We stayed in a hostel in vagator, which was superb if you have a low budget. They have a big hall and small hut-like compartments for one person in one bed and a shared giant washroom. After the festival we went to vagator beach, which was so stunning, the red cliffs on one side and the red sunset on the other. Enjoying the cuisine full of culinary arts in one of the hilltop restaurants watching the sunset is blissful. We explored north goa visiting different beaches like calangute and baga which are the most famous beaches in goa with numerous restaurants and resorts on the beach and their water activities.
New Year’s Eve night on Calangute beach
Spended the new Year’s Eve night on Calangute beach which was so crowded. So if you need privacy, calangute is not the option. But we enjoyed the DJ night in one beach restaurant and it was a remarkable new year’s eve 2020, though we all know how 2020 had gone. We went to Chapora fort which was a famous tourist spot. The mesmerising view of the sea from the fort is breathtaking, we did a lot of photoshoots in amir khan style as the dil chahta hai scene was shot here. The sinquerim beach is extraordinary in north Goa, the absolute curve of the coast gives a panoramic view. It is the perfect beach for swimming and for water activities. There is a fort which is stepping down to the coast line and touching the sea. The view From the fort is unmatchable. A place in Parra in north goa is popular with youths, the picturesque location with palm trees on both sides of a narrow road is a shooting location for many bollywood movies like dear zindagi, malang. When we went to Parra it was hard to find this location. You need to ask locals and give them hints about the location, then they will lead you.
