North Goa Tourism
The state of Goa in India is divided into two different districts - the North and the South Goa. The North Goa is considered to be the party hub and a shopaholics’ paradise. Here we find some of the most popular beaches like the Calangute, Sinquerim, Vagator, Anjuna and many more. From experiencing the beach shacks, thrilling water sports, beautiful clear water and their mesmerising views these beaches have it all. There are many shopping centres around these sites with shops selling fashionable attires and handicrafts items. One can also find many restaurants with delicious Goan dishes and other cuisines. The luxurious casinos and the fun filled night life are some of the major attractions of North Goa.
North Goa also has places with great historical significance. The beautiful gothic architectures of various churches and forts built during the Portuguese colonisation are spectacular. These century old structures are quite popular sites to visit. Fort Aguada, Chapora Fort, Bom Jesus Basilica and Church of Mae De Deus are well known tourist spots in North Goa. Bom Jesus Basilica in old Goa is also famous for holding the mortal remains of St. Francis Xaviers. The Temple of Bogdeshwara is also considered as a masterpiece and is visited by many. It is just 34 kms from the Dabolim International Airport and is well accessible through roads. You can hire cars and bikes to travel around.
