Calling all sunbathers – this one’s for you. You’ll spend the afternoon on one of Goa’s best belts of sand. City slickers from South Goa’s capital, Margao, have long been fans of Colva Beach. And it’s not hard to figure out why. This long, milky white stretch is the perfect balance of laidback and lively. You can still watch fishermen go about their day, drying mackerel and prawns under huge nets. But you’ll be taking up residence at one of the beachside shacks for the next three hours. You can lie back on your lounger while waiters bring you a soft drink or a pint – included as part of your package. If you get peckish, there’s a good range of dishes to buy, too – whether you fancy Indian, Chinese or a steak.
The journey time is approximately 1 hour each way.
- SUITABILITY Little physical activity.
