If you are visiting India from overseas or travelling domestically, Goa is a perfect vacation spot for beach lovers.
When we were travelling thorugh Goa, we went to one of the most popular beachside restaurants called Thalassa. This open-air restaurant is famous for not only its delicious food, but also for the stunning backdrop of the Arabian Sea and lush green palm trees. As soon as you enter the restaurant, it feels like you are somewhere in Greece. Crisp white interior with the blue ocean in the background along with a perfect blend of light breeze, lounge music and the stunning view makes Thalassa one of the best places to check out when you are in Goa.
When we were in Goa, we rented scooters to explore the city. If you are comfortable riding a scooter, it is the best mode of transportation in Goa. If you wish to explore nearby attractions, you can check out Dudhsagar waterfalls which literally means “sea of milk”. It is located just 60 kilometres away from Goa at the border of Karnataka and Goa.
Whether it is Goa, Thailand, Maldives, Costa Rica or Tanzania, whenever we travel to a tropical destination, we have come up with a new ritual of spending a few hours at the beach and gazing into the unending ocean. All the continents and nations that are geographically divided seem to connect seamlessly if you look closely where they all intersect at the horizon.
There is something therapeutic about spending a day at the beach. You can have a deep and meaningful personal experience if you simply pause, breathe and allow the ocean to communicate with you. It can help you develop a new and refreshing perspective on life. If you allow the waves to whisper in your ears, a few hours spent at the beach can be one of those experiences that make you look within yourself and seek a deeper meaning in life.
Sky above your head, sand beneath your feet and an endless ocean in front of you – what else do you need?
