When in Goa, an obvious option is to spend plenty of time relaxing in its generous beaches, taking in the sun and the sand. But which beach you want to visit depends on your taste. Luckily for most tourists, Goa has different types of beaches that can suit most people’s preferences. Calangute beach is one of the most crowded, so head here if you want to celebrate your love with other couples. On the other hand, beaches like Mandrem, Agonda, and Palolem are relatively quiet, so if you want some alone time with your spouse, this is probably where you should go.

2. Architectural splendor
