What You Should Know More About Panaji

  • Things to do in Panaji:

    • Water sports at Miramar and Dona Paula beach: Tourists are most primarily attracted to Panaji due to its relaxing beaches such as the Miramar and the Dona Paula beach. Both of these beaches are located within the 7km radius of the city. They deliver a spectacular view of the Fort Aguada that is situated across the bay. There are a range of water-sports activities that you can indulge in too.

    • Spiritual oneness at the Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception: There is a beautiful church located right in the main square region of Panaji. Portuguese sailors would essentially treat this church as their sport of giving thanks for their long and treacherous voyage journey all the way from Portugal.

    • Cruising along the rivers of Mandovi: Are you an adventure junkie? Well, no worries there – Panaji has it taken care of. Enjoy sunset cruising activities through the many regions of Mandovi river. If you’re too tired to indulging in any more physically excruciating, just relax and have a moonlit dinner by the river in many of the luxurious resorts.

  • What will you like in Panaji:

    • Rural simplicity of the old town of Panaji: The Panaji Old town is amongst the oldest residential quarters of the city. The place is named after the fountain of Pheonix and offers a greatly simplistic experience of Goa. It is quite hard to imagine such an experience especially given how developed the rest of the city is. It is a great way to enjoy the simplicity that surprisingly still exists in Goa.

    • Get the picturesque view of Qurem Creek: One of those most important experiences in Panaji is visiting Qurem Creek. They are natural, beautiful and gigantic. They even consist of colourful houses lined along the sprawling landscape of the region. You will truly love being at Panaji if you visit this popular location.

I was totally enthralled by the Jet Ski and the parasailing activity that I did at the Baina Beach, Goa. The experience was great and I just loved it. I am coming back again to Goa to repeat it. Undoubtedly one of the most exciting things that I have ever done in this short lifespan of mine. So I am definitely going to recommend it to all of my friends.

One of the most famous beaches is Baina beach something for speed boating. Life jackets are very much necessary during speed boating. The time span of speed boat riding cans latitude from time to ten minutes to one hour. Instructors and tutorials are also given to make certain safety. Banana rides are also special rides generally used for children and families. You don’t have to worry when you are going to make a plan a schedule to go to see here and do trip Jet Ski at Baina Beach. The natural beauty and adventure are too nice that cannot find it in the world. So if you must take back with yourself every memory spent. If you want to take the fun and make it for your memories, you must have to take your Camera with you. Unless you miss the whole natural beauty as well as the adventure life.

I have heard about the Goa Kayaking being India’s and of course Goa’s leading eco-tourism and nature combined destination, cruising along the coastline of Baina Beach of Goa, backwaters and also along the rivers. I went during the Monsoons with my family and enjoyed a lot. There are many safe and scenic rivers for backwaters including the Nerul river, the Sal backwaters, the Mandovi and the Zuari. It was an exhilarating experience full of relaxation and calmness. We really loved the Kayaking and planning soon to visit again. Without damaging the environment, enjoy the pristine beaches and thick jungles from up close. Goa has everything to offer than you can ever imagine. Make a travel plan to Goa soon

I have visited Goa many times but never get view of Dudhsagar Waterfall. I had heard a lot about this waterfall and always wanted to see specially after watching Dudhsgar in Chennai Express movie. Our pickup was arranged from our hotel and our guide was very good. we drive through forest crossing water streams and finally reached waterfall. I had never seen such a beautiful waterfall before. It was magical.

Paragliding in Arambol Goa is a super fun experience. It is very interesting and exciting. One can have complete adventurous fun with these games. While we thought Goa is all about just booze and stuff, this came as a huge surprise. Arambol is a pretty and clean lake that is perfect for any adventure sport. I really loved this experience and I highly recommend this to everyone.

4 of us visited Dudhsagar Falls on 21st of October, 2016. We boarded the Goa express from Pune, and at about 4 am, the train made an unscheduled stop at the Dudhsagar station. We got off right there. Then, with torchlights, we walked on the tracks till we reached the falls, about half a km. The view is splendid. October, being post monsoon, the water was not as much as it is in the peak monsoon, still there was quite a lot of water in the falls. We took some photos at the falls and then walked along the tracks to reach the viewpoint to see the entire falls and a train pass through. We hitched a ride from a passing goods train to reach kullem and had return tickets from the same location. One must be aware of the monkeys in the vicinity and exercise extreme caution while walking on the tracks. If you travel responsibly, it is an amazing place to go.

I had been to Goa several times due to its perfect blend of leisure, excitement and fun. Recently while visiting the beach, I found out about all these activities and one of such activity: Jet Ski at the beach kind of drew my attention and I wanted to do it. But there was a tremendous lack of systematic procedure. Advance booking, Unviability of on spot booking etc. made me furious and could not do the activity and I also have doubts about the safety issues associated with it.
