Why you must visit Goa in 2021?
Whenever we speak about goa, then almost every Indian youngster dream to visit goa at least once in their life. And almost every Indian, plans for a trip to goa with their friends but very few of them actually, make it. Many of such plans gets cancelled at the last moment, (because farhan k abba nhi maanenge ;p), these plans never get successful due to the end time denial of someone in the group. But sometimes the reason is this myth that goa is very expensive. But in this blog, I’m going to tell you, each and every thing regarding goa and how one can also travel in low budget?
Goa means beaches and beaches means goa.
Goa is very popular for their beautiful beaches. There are so many beaches in goa, it has a coastline of 160 km (99 mi). That means you can easily spot at least one beach, not very far from any location in goa. Every beach is unique in terms of its beauty, landscape, etc.
Here I list a Few of those Beaches.
Vagator beach is a quite beach where you won’t find much crowd as compared to the other beaches in Goa. You can spend your quality time there. You can go there with your friends and families and enjoy the beautiful view of sunset.
This is a touristic place. You can see a lot of tourists there. This is a very beautiful beach and you can get every facility there from shop to food. Parking is also very cheap, a charge of ₹100 for car and ₹50 for sooty.
One of the most famous beaches of goa is Baga beach. This is the most crowded place in entire goa with each and every facility you need. You can either park your car before reaching the beach along the areas on the roadside or you can pay a sum of 20rs for parking, I recommend you to use paid parking as it is very safe and cheap. Baga beach is famous for its parties, a lot of parties are organized at the beach in night. Water sports and other fun activities are also available.
Basically, Miramar beach is quite popular among couples. You will find a lot of couples hanging out. And this is one of the very well-maintained beaches of goa. Where you can enjoy with your friends and families. You can see local people playing soccer there.
You will mostly see foreign tourist in Arambol beach as compared to Indian tourist. This is also a clean and quite beach. You can see foreign tourist playing drums and guitars over there in the evening time.
There is also a flea market in each side of the beach where you can buy stuffs.
Calangute beach is also a crowded and a very known place in goa. You can see a lot of palm and coconut trees over there. There is a huge market near Calangute beach where you can buy varieties of stuffs. Water sports and local food are the major attraction.
This place is famous for the magnificent sunset view. Don Paula is also famous for many of Bollywood big hits, one among these most famous movies, is Singham. You can see a lot of tourist over there. Water sport and other fun activities happens all day long.
Chapora fort is one of the finest historical monuments in goa. This fort is named Chapora beaches the river chapora is near to the fort. And the second name of this fort is “dil chahta hai fort” because in 2001, the movie, dil chahta hai was shot over there.
Again, Agoda fort is known as one of the most beautiful historic places in goa. This fort shows the culture of Portuguese empire. You can see light house in this fort and you can also see Agoda Jail over there.

This church is located in capital of goa i.e. Panaji. The church is very old and has a long history, a must go for everyone. You can see stairs on both side of the church and the architecture of the church is just marvelous. And there is also goa’s second biggest bell over there.

There is a huge option of accommodation in goa. If you are in group then you can go for an apartment. You can rent apartment in north goa as it is the best location in my perspective.
You can book accommodation via booking.com in cheaper price.
It is recommended that you try beach hut which you can get in 700-1000INR, where you get the experience of living just side by side to a beach.
There are very few public transports available in goa. But you can rent scooty or car as per the requirement.
Car price – 1500-3000rs
Scooty price- 350-650rs
The main factor depends is the place from where you are renting the vehicles, if you rent it from a crowded place like Baga beach or Calangute beach you will get little higher price there.
Now the most important part of the trip is budget. In the above articles we already know everything about where to go, where to stay, what to eat, so now let’s discuss about the budget for the trip.
Off season for goa
You will see very less tourist in rainy seasons so you will get everything in a cheaper price on that time. You can get accommodation form 1500inr onwards.
Many people think that there is no fun in off season but they are totally wrong about this. The fun depends on how you are enjoying it.
Everyone knows that in peak season the price of everything is higher than in any other season.
So, if you are planning to go with group. You can expect around 10-12k per person, in the off seasons.
But if you are planning to go in the peak season than per head cost will be around 16-20k.
