As we all know, Goa is the party capital of India. If you are a party animal, you can have an unforgettable time in North Goa, with its numerous discotheques, karaoke bars, happening party scenes and remarkable night life. The beaches are full of action, and the restaurants are rocking!

But when you have had your fill of all this stuff, and your soul is craving for some peace and quiet, then you need to go down to South Goa. South Goa is where you can disconnect from the bustling city life and rejuvenate in the lap of lush greenery and nature. There are many nice beaches down there, like the Colva beach and Benaulim beach, but the queen of the Southern beaches of Goa is the gorgeous coastline of Varca.

What is the best thing to do in Varca?


That’s the best thing to do in Varca. Absolutely nothing. Just chill on the beach, relax in your resort, and unwind at the pool. The white sand, the blue water and the empty sky adds to the unparalleled beauty of this place. Wake up early and go for a long walk on the beach, watch the sea birds and crabs, wet your ankles in the pool or go cycling on the sands. If you are not an early riser, then you are missing a mind-blowing experience you can look back on.

Later on, you can hire a boat and go dolphin watching. The bottle-nose dolphins are very friendly and playful. If you are patient, you will definitely spot a family of dolphins playing in the water. You can even jump into the sea and join the dolphins for a swim.

For more action in the sea, you can go for a longer boat cruise and check out some islands, go fishing, have a barbecue and even go scuba diving to check out the underwater world.

If you prefer vacationing closer to the beach, then you can try out the various adventure activities. Para sailing, banana boating and speed boating are few of the famous water sports offered here. If adrenaline pumping activities is not your thing, just relax and play basketball on the sands or just sun bathe and have a massage.

After you have had your fill of the beach, you can explore the wonders of South Goa. It is much less touristy than North Goa and has a chilled out Portuguese vibe. Check out the beautiful old church in Varca village and explore the neighboring areas of Benaulim, Cavellosim and Mobor.

There are beautiful spice gardens close by, where you can check out what various spice plants look like, and buy some super fresh spices to take home. Take a taste of history by visiting the ancient Cabo de Rama fort or visit the jungles in Mollem national park where you can check out the natural beauty of the Western Ghats.

In the evening you can shake a leg at the hotel discos or go to the casino and splurge on some games of chance.

Do not miss the fantastic Goan cuisine, which is a magical mix of Portuguese and Indian flavours. Martin’s corner is a very well-known joint, but you can also enjoy Goan Feni and food at the various shacks on the beach.

Varca is a breath of fresh air to the soul and a wonderful place to recharge your batteries. It is the last frontier of Goa and is the best part of the beach experience. While you are here, stay at the gorgeous Goa La Vida Varca for a mind-blowing coastal holiday.
