This tour throws Goa’s history and beaches into one package. First, you’ll spend time at the small-but-mighty Goa Chitra Museum, which houses more than 4,000 artefacts. It’s split into two sections – one looks at transport, the other peers into the agricultural history of the state. You’ll find farming tools, local pottery and decorative marriage palanquins – a type of wheel-less carriage. After your history lesson, you’ll get to chill out on one of Goa’s best stretches of sand. Utorda Beach won a TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Award in 2018. It’s an uncrowded swathe of white sand, sprinkled with palms and a few beach shacks. You’ll have lunch at one of these laidback eateries. Then you’re free to sunbathe for an hour, before heading back to the ship.
The journey time is approximately 1 hour each way.
