Goa is still one of the most popular destinations for couples to spend a romantic holiday or even their honeymoon. The laid-back spirit, natural beauty, splendid sunrises and sunsets and white sand beaches make it one of the most romantic places in India. The popularity of the destination has also ensured that there are a number of really good honeymoon resorts in Goa. These luxurious resorts offer secluded beach-facing villas that are ideal for newly-weds. But Goa is not only about the beaches. There are many more places you could take your loved one to for a romantic evening.
Here are 5 romantic places to visit in Goa while on a couple holiday :
- Charao Island :
Located on the Mandovi river, Charao Island is part of the Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary. Enclosed by mangroves, the island is a haven for birdwatching in December. But, it also offers an escape from the crowds at the beach. Take a boat ride when the sun sets through the lush mangrove forest and spend a romantic evening with your loved one. The forest is also ideal for long walks in the morning as the birds start chirping.
- Fort Aguada :
Famous for its stunning location, rich history and grand architecture, Fort Aguada is must visit place in Goa. Choose to visit the place on a cool evening and explore the fort. Enjoy stunning views from the lighthouse. The fort is famous for being one of the settings in the popular Bollywood movie ‘Dil Chahta Hai.’
- Old Goa :
Charming streets lined with colourful old Portuguese style houses, quaint cobbled alleyways and beautiful churches, Old Goa is a paradise for couples looking forward to quiet evening walks. Take a break from the exciting parties to explore the beautiful streets and artsy town of Old Goa. Visit a few churches while you are at it and relish a cup of coffee at one of the charming cafes here.
- Dudhsagar Waterfalls :
A picturesque change of terrain from beaches, Dudhsagar is the fifth largest waterfall in India. Watch the awe-inspiring spectacle of the water cascading down rocky terrain by the side of your loved one. The 60km drive to the falls is also an equally pleasurable experience as it takes you though verdant green forests.
- Pequeno Island :
Another off-beat place to visit, Pequeno Island is lesser known and therefore offers some respite from the crowds. Offering green cover and a scenic rocky beach, the island gives you the opportunity to spend some quality time exploring the island or you can also choose to go kayaking and snorkelling.
