This beach can be the starting point as all the major beaches are in a continuous row from here. And it is the most beautiful and clean beach in North Goa. You will find plenty of shacks here and you can relax here with a beautiful sunset and sip your beer, as alcohols are very cheap in goa. So you gotta enjoy a lot of booze.
It is the largest beach in North Goa and also known as the queen of beaches. You can surely relax here, as shacks have foot massage all day. You can do a lot of sports activity like banana ride, parasailing, water bike and so on. In November swimming is even safer due to the presence of life guards. Majority of the foreign crowd is found here but Indian is also there as we are everywhere. :) It is one of the best places for couples in goa.
Next to Calangute beach and you'll find all major water sports here and a lot of shacks in a row. The food is great and a number of shopping options. It is cheaper than Calangute beach so its value for money too. You can save a lot more in goa if you use these amazing hacks. Moreover, you can visit this place both during the day for water sports and at night for a beautifully romantic candlelight dinner.
It is a bit crowded in the month of December and January, as it is very popular for its nightlife and scenic view. The beach is very clean you can enjoy the serene beach all day and feel calm. At night you can go to shiva valley or curlies for rave parties. In new years it is even more interesting and bars are all lit. :)
PRO TIP: If you are a lover of seafood you must try seafood in goa as it is one of the best and cheap. Here non-veg food is cheaper than veg.
It is famous due to its dynamic cliffs and its secluded nature. This beach is divided into two beaches named Big Vagator and Small Vagator. Tourists visit here to view the sunset through the rocks that are quite marvellous. It is very near to Chapora fort so that can be your next spot. :)
It is famously known as the 'Dil Chahta Hai' location. It has got a really beautiful view and exquisite sunset. You can enjoy a wonderful view of all the above beaches as well as the Arabian Sea.
Aguada Fort can be your starting point too and then move to all beaches, starting from Candolim beach as it is very close to Candolim beach or vice versa. This place has a lot of historical value as it was a jail and light house in old times. This place is very calm and place you can plan your sunset here too as it is located at Sinquerim beach so a lot of water sports happen too, you don't want to miss parasailing . ;)
PRO TIP: Never ask from police for any guidance as they might create issues with IDs and all. So always ask from locals they can guide better and politely. :)
This waterfall has got all the fame after the movie Chennai Express was shot in this waterfall. This should be your last spot on the trip as it is pretty far from beaches or city centre (Panjim city). It is very beautiful, even more during winters so it is a must-visit place in goa during new years. Its so much fun going for trekking here, though you can hire any cab or something too.
These are all my favourite places to visit in goa. I hope now you are all sorted with your trip. And if you are looking for some tips those are pocket-friendly as you are travelling on the new year and which can be quiet expensive than normal. You can check these hacks too.
I'll be back very another destination.
