If there’s one place i’ve traveled extensively over and over again, and still remained in awe of, it’s Goa.
It’s definitely a place to lighten your heart, free your mind and connect with your soul.
As a bonus, it also offers some of the most beautiful vistas to capture, from a photography perspective.
Since i’m often asked for recommendations on places to go in Goa, here’s a compilation of some of my favorite spots.
1. Chapora Fort, North Goa
Lush almost all year round, there’s no better time than September (just after the monsoons) to visit.
2. Betul, South Goa
A quaint fishing village, this makes for a beautiful stopover en route Palolem.
3. Cabo de Rama Fort, South Goa
My ace photographer pal Sumit Jagdale and i went here early morn to capture the best light… it sure paid off!
4. Arambol Rock Side, North Goa
Walk towards the North end of the Arambol beach towards the rocks for this majestic view!
5. Vagator Fort & around
Once you’re done capturing the Chapora fort, walk down towards the horizon and stand here in awe of nature!
As you make your way towards Vagator, look for a secret abandoned fort on top of the Vagator hill (where Sunburn used to happen).
6. Super Secret Spot, North Goa
This is one of my favorite spots. Try guessing it, or ask nicely and i might just let you in on it 😉
