The Indian Marketplace

India, the land of colours, none more evident than in a marketplace.

Goa – a beach experience

 

Goa is probably best known around the world for its beaches and beach resorts. Here are a few shots from beaches in North Goa from my visit January 2012.

Vagator Beach, Goa.

A shrine on a rock outcrop on Vagator Beach. A little more than a quarter of Goa’s population are christian.
Anjuna Beach, Goa – Allegedly famous for trance music, which was thankfully absent on the day I visited!
A beached boat at Baga. This was possibly the best beach I visited in Goa.

I think we chose a great time to visit Goa and a good time of the day to be at the beaches. There were few people about and that made for a relaxing walk in the balmy waters. Calangute beach was possibly the most crowded beach of all. We couldn’t see the sea given the sheer number of people!

Goa by night

 

These pictures are from my last visit to India in early January. This is the Dona Paula beach in Panjim, Goa. These shots are at about 7:30PM IST, well past sunset.
