Flights to Goa

Goa Goa - a tiny state on the west coast of India - is best described as the Ibiza of the east. Hedonists, hippies and naturalists have all flocked to this mellow beach resort since the 1960s, but in the last eight years it's become one of the hottest destinations, prompting visits from jet-setters and celebrities who travel there to enjoy Christmas or New Year's on the beach. One unique characteristic that differentiates it from other parts of India is the alluring mix of Indian and Portuguese and its laid back ethos of "Sossegade", Portuguese for "Take it easy."

Although the Portuguese left in 1961, Goa had been colonised by them for nearly 500 years leaving behind a strong influence. Most of the locals still speak the language, but it doesn't stop there. Many Goans are Catholic with last names such as D'Souza and Miranda; the food has distinct Portuguese flavours and the homes are enriched with European features.

If you're booking a flight to Goa with a view to hitting the beach then you'll be spoilt for choice once you get there. Most visitors head to the Baga-to-Calangute area which is packed with beach shacks and tourists. But for a taste of the more serene sandy stretches, Agonda and Galgibaga are both breathtaking.
