Goa is not just a destination, it’s a state of mind! From rhythmic ocean waves to soothing sand manicures, friendly locals to raging firangs…this place really has it all. This post was unconsciously tucked away in one of the “shoot folders.” Only when I was planning my next Goa trip did I remember to visit these pictures and finally decided to blog. So it’s safe to say that this post is a reverie flashback! After a peaceful stroll at the white sand beach of Palolem, I got back to my comfortable beach view hut at the Ciarans and decided to do a quick photo shoot. Impromptu shoots are the best!
This post is also my very first #HippiequeTravels post! Personally, my favourite part of Goa is a small beach called as Palolem located in South of Goa. This beach use to be one of not-so-known beaches 5-6 years back and thus was an untouched paradise. Today it’s the cool concoction of Baga street madness with Ashwem’s beautiful sand stretch. Palolem has it’s own street shopping lane before you enter the beach (Pro tip: Haggle the hell outta the vendors) and it also has some amazing on-the-beach shacks/bars that will guarantee the best night of your life (I vouch for it!). Palolem also has Silent Noise – The Club, it’s India’s first club that has an all head-phones party! So you come to the club, put on a pair of headphones, select the kind of music you want to groove to and watch other people do the same. The coolest part is when you take off your head phones and watch people around you go crazy with absolutely no music! LOL. Here are few other reasons why I love South Goa over the over-commercialized North Goa.
It’s drop dead beautiful white sand beach
Not ready to leave yet, Might never be! 🌅💗🌴 _____________________________________ #igers #igaddict #instadaily #dailyfeature #picoftheday #instalike #instagood #instamood #beachlife #beachlove #scenary #beach #day #coconut #trees #sun #sand #gorgeous #instaphoto #photography #goregous #instabeauty #traveladdict #palolem #getaway
With cute eateries/bars with cool graffiti walls (calling all the art junkies)
You can enjoy your poison and still feel like you’re in heaven!
You can rent out a float and chill on the gentle waves
Killer location for photo shoots a.k.a making digital memories!
So since we’re on the verge of bidding the dreadful monsoons goodbye. I have booked my tickets for Goa in the coming month. See ya there amigos!
