Goa is mostly famous for its old hippie culture, crowded flee markets and never ending full moon parties. But there are still some options left for the traveller who wish to enjoy the beauty of this state on a silent beach. During my trip to Goa recently I discovered some beaches which are still almost untouched by tourists. Once should go when there are still places like this left. Very soon Morjim beach in the north and Arossim in south will be just as crowded as all the others.
Morning walk at Morjim beach. The beach is famous for the many sea turtles. Every year they come in the month of November to lay their eggs in the sand. But due to the climate change and the tsunami the animals are not to be seen before the month of December. The beach is quite short (around 3 kilometers) but the sand is fine and if you wish to be away from the crowd of backpackers. This is the place to be.
Christianity is India’s third largest religion with approximately 24 million followers. Portuguese missionaries reached the Malabar coast in the late 15th century. Goa was ruled by the Portuguese for almost 500 years.
