Set on India’s south west coast, the island of Goa is renowned for its amazing soft sand beaches. There are 66 miles in total with a mixture of bustling beaches and tranquil, nearly deserted bays, where you can lie back and listen to the sound of the waves softly hugging the shore, surrounded by palms and clear blue sea. In contrast you will find more lively beaches lined with beach bars and sea food shacks where you can grab a snack after a dip in the sea, or try one of the many watersports on offer.
