Goa
Goa lies along the Arabian Sea, and has a coastline dotted with palm-fringed sandy beaches. Along the more popular, commercial beaches—like Calangute, Baga, and Anjuna—expect to see folks lounging around, sipping on beers or munching snacks made at one of the beach shacks. Beachside massages are readily available, as are Jet Skis, paddleboards, and other water sports equipment. After sundown, these beaches become party central, with restaurants, bars, and clubs operating close to the water. If you want a quieter, more relaxed experience, head south to beaches like Agonda, Patnem, or Benaulim.
