Cruising to Goa

Located on India's west coast, Goa is among the most interesting and iconic regions of this fascinating country, and offers a truly unique experience. Much of this is down to the state's history, with Goa having been a Portuguese colony for several centuries. As a result, the local culture is an intoxicating blend of Indian and European influences, while the introduction of tourism over the past few decades has helped the place develop into a truly amazing place to visit.

For most travellers, the main attraction in Goa is the coastline, with many of India's most picturesque beaches to be found here. Among the most popular are the likes of Anjuna Beach and Palolem Beach, although visitors will quickly realise that there's much more than just sand, sea and sunshine on offer here. Indeed, Goa is something of a paradise for yoga lovers, with the entire state having become synonymous with new-age spirituality. As such, it's a terrific place to head to for a blend of ancient traditions, colonial history and modern culture.

The food in Goa is also unique, with the local cuisine differing from that found in other parts of India thanks to the fact that it has been heavily influenced by Portuguese culinary traditions.
