When you are looking for beaches and sun in India, Goa is where you should go. It’s a tiny state on the edge of India, next to the Indian ocean.

Goa is a cultural mixture of Indian and Portuguese influences. It’s a paradise for travelers, locals and for people who are looking to stay for just a bit longer than a holiday. In the North, you’ll find a rather vibrant tourist atmosphere. Whilst in the South, there is a rather laid shanty back vibe. Also, it’s easy to get around in this sunny state with public transport or a rented scooter.

Here is a travel guide for Goa.
