Honeymoon in Goa?

Are you considering taking your Honeymoon in Goa? If so you have some to the right place!

If you have never been to Goa it is hard to imagine what it is like especially with regards to taking you honeymoon there. So many times people refer back to the days of the 'hippy invasion', the introduction of mass tourism and a constant supply of smelly backpackers. But the beauty of India is it's variety and this is not lost in the touristic hub of the country, Goa.

With shed loads of beaches in Goa the variety and options are limitless making Goa a perfect choice for a honeymoon.

But with so much choice where in Goa should you go? Well the beach is the obvious choice as this is what Goa is so famous for. But then which beach in Goa? Well now that is a good question... To start with you need to ask your self a few questions. The first being what exactly is it that you both want to do on your honeymoon? Do you just want to party all night and sleep all day? Do you want extreme privacy and serenity on your honeymoon in Goa?

I've picked out a few beaches and listed them below to try and help you decide which beach is best for a honeymoon in Goa.

Arambol Beach

Arombol is one of the more 'secluded' beaches with a charming atmosphere, pristine beach and lovely little village.. A great place to spend your honeymoon together and in peace.

Palolem Beach

Possibly on of the most popular honeymoon destinations in Goa, Palolem Beach is my personal favourite and offers the perfect balance between peace and party.

Colva and Benaulim

These two beaches are very different but very close to each other. One offers people, party and excitement while the other offers pristine and empty stretches of white sand without another soul to be found for miles!

Baga Beach

Baga is one of the more popular 'package tour' destinations and as a result has more of a 'honeymoon infrastructure'. A great place nonetheless and definitely worth considering for your honeymoon in Goa.

Goa: A Honeymooners Paradise

There really is no other place like Goa on this earth we currently occupy. While many people complain about how much it has changed over the past 40 years, since the original hippy travellers who came over land from the west founded Goa as a popular destination.

It wasn't however, until the trance movement of the 80's and 90's that caused the worlds press and tourism industry to focus on the sun-soaked beaches of Goa.

But having said all this, please don't be put of. While a few beaches such as Calungute, Baga and now to a certain extent even Palolem have become a little over-run with people who may as well have gone to Spain for the little culture they notice, most of the beaches have retained their charm.

And Goa's beaches are not it's only asset. Check out the travel to Goa page for more information on the other perks in Goa that make taking a honeymoon in Goa so very special.

Goa's Coastline

Half the reason that Goa is such a popular honeymoon destination is because of it's stunning coastline. Honeymooners are often swept away not by the surf but by the beauty, mystery and magic that this place holds. Now I don't want to be a little sleazy when I say here that witnessing this kind of thing together as a newly wedded couple is a truly special thing.

It's funny to think that most people who head out to Goa believe it is one long beach! However soon after realizing their mistake they become mesmerised by the culture, the charm and the variety that taking a honeymoon in Goa offers.

So what more is there to a Honeymoon in Goa?

While your in Goa you should take a look at the villages of Goa, the temples and churches (The Se Cathedral and Basilica of Bom Jesus, Church of St. Francis of Assisi, Rachol Seminary and the Church of Our Lady of Rosary are some of the more popular ones), Old Goa, Panajim.

You can find links to more information about all of these attractions in Goa on the 'travel to Goa' main page.

When is the best time to take a Honeymoon in Goa?

You can travel to Goa anytime of the year and you'll always find some excitement and some interesting people but to be honest if you head out during the summer months (June to Early September) the heat can be a little oppressive. Beside, most of the beaches are closed up and storms are frequent.

So with the power of deduction we can safely say that taking a honeymoon any time between early September and late may is a good time to travel.

Whenever you choose to go to Goa for your honeymoon you are bound to enjoy it...

Good luck and don't drink the water!!
