So, mountains aren’t your thing, and you’re looking at a beachy, romantic vacation? Then Goa is perfect for you! You’re probably wondering why we’re recommending a party destination as a honeymoon spot. That’s because Goa is so much more than just parties. From beaches, to treks, to wildlife, to caves, Goa has it all. Get away from the hustle and bustle of North Goa, and head to the quieter, more undiscovered South Goa, where beaches are pristine and not crowded, to spend some quality romantic time with your loved one.
In south Goa, stay at Sterling Goa– Varca. The Varca beach is unlike others. Its white sands and pristine water make it stand apart from others. It is peppered with palm trees, coconut trees and shrubs along its 10 km coastline. It is also less crowded than other beaches of Goa. Sterling Goa – Varca is just 700 m from this surreal beach.
