South India & Kerala - Goa (Chapter)
This is the Goa chapter from Lonely Planet’s South India & Kerala guidebook.
Goa is as beautiful and culturally rich as it is tiny and hassle-free, so you can go birdwatching in a butterfly-filled forest, marvel at centuries-old cathedrals, venture out to white-water waterfalls or meander the capital’s charming alleyways.
- wander the Portuguese quarters of Panaji (Panjim; p817) and linger over lunch at one of its traditional Goan restaurants
- indulge in barefoot luxury on long white-sand beaches, like Agonda, in the state’s sleepy southern stretches
- open up your chakras while doing yoga to the rhythm of ocean waves and swaying palms at Mandrem and Arambol
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Central Goa, Panaji (Panjim), Old Goa, Ponda & around, North Goa, Mapusa Candolim, Sinquerim & Fort Aguada, Calangute & Baga, Anjuna, Vagator & Chapora, Morjim & Asvem, Mandrem, Arambol (Harmal), South Goa, Margao (Madga-on), Chandor, Colva & Benaulim, Agonda and Palolem & around.
