This was the sixth time I visited Goa. Like all times I tried to find out “must see lesser known” places before my travel. However this time it was relying on a friends advice and not internet. So I decided to put these places on internet for others. This trip stood out compared to previous ones as I came across some really great places to visit. All of them had great food, wonderful setting and ambience, lovely views. So here I am sharing few “must visit places” for your next trip to Goa.
This place gives you a sense of old Goa. Colored houses, quiet neighborhood and pretty much nothing else. But still a great place to visit. Don’t forget to check out Velha-this store sells some neat Portugal ceramic items.
Calamari on Candolim
A great shack in the heart of Goa, you could miss the lane so ask for directions. While you could find it expensive for a shack but with live music and the neat set up its a good change from the run down shacks.
Theressa on Anjuna
If you want to get seated here ensure to book a table and reach by 4 PM. The sunset here is a must see and has to be in your bucket list. Perfect ambience if you wish to surprise your partner. You will feel that this is a perfect venue for a anniversary party you would like to throw sometime.
Om made Cafe at Anjuna.
Right time to visit is in morning after 9 AM. They just get started then! Great place to grab some wraps, exotic shakes and a variety of English and American breakfast options.
Bora Bora at Morjim
Serves Russian cuisine, the Turtle logo is intriguing. The place becomes a sunset viewing hub around 5pm. Even for vegetarians there are some outstanding options.
‘Baba Au Rhum’ back road of Baga towards Anjuna
A place you need to be a bit lucky to find. But if you find it, you will adore it. Trusting your GPS is a good idea. Once you are here, enjoy the great ambience and some delicious snacks, lip smacking burgers, sumptuous desserts. The setting is perfect for a book read while romancing with nature (or your girl) 😉
St. Anthony at Baga
One of the better off shacks at Baga Beach with some fresh Karaoke music.
Acronym for “Love Passion Karma”. I was intrigued by this place, did not check it out this time. Would love to do so in future.
They say one needs to visit Goa every year. While I did not agree earlier but if there are more such places … Bring it on !
