Goa – the party capital of India comprises of two major districts namely North and South Goa. The districts are bounded by various other districts with Sindhudurg of Maharashtra lying in the North and Belgaum of Karnataka lying to the east. The Arabian Sea surrounding the North Goa district from the west and quite naturally, the South Goa district bounding the former from the South.
North Goa has a greatly revered history lying behind it. Most of the territories situated in North Goa were once under the kingdom of Sawantwadi. Sawantwadi was majorly dominated by Pondawas and Marathas. Hence, quite naturally, this region was primarily dominated by Hindus who later on became to be living under the Portuguese Inquisition – who pretty much changed the face of the whole of Goa itself. Post the 18th century, the Portuguese became prominently the dominators of the region of Goa and much change was brought it.
While Konkani is the mother tongue of the majority of the people residing in the North Goa district, there is a special blend of the Portuguese and Indian culture that you will get to witness in this region. The place consists of tonnes of beaches being kissed by beautiful, salt-ful oceans and one of the best times to visit Goa is during monsoons as it is another joy to watch the small but quite region come to life.
Apart from that, there are a number of activities that one can choose from especially the varied watersports available for the use of tourists. The night-life is quite obviously commendable too.
