Attractions in Goa

Now that you know where to co-work when in Goa, the next question is: Where should you go and what can you do for fun in Goa?

The answer: SO MUCH! If you don’t know where to go as you plan your itinerary in Goa, here are a few suggestions on places and activities to try:

Beaches

Goa is known for beautiful beaches with its coastline stretching over 100km. There are as many as 50 beaches with different characteristics. Popular beaches among travelers and nomads include Anjuna, Vagator, Arambol, Morjim, Baga, Calangute, Pelolem.

Local & International food

In Goa, locals will take their food seriously. Expect a lot of spices, coconut, rice, and fish in their dishes, as the area is close to the coast. There are plenty of vegetarian options as well.

Being a popular destination for international travelers, you can also get authentic and high quality western dishes in Goa.

Nightlife

The nightlife in Goa is intense, with so many ways you can party all night long. From clubbing to music gigs, trance parties to beach shacks, you’ll be able to enjoy drinks, meet new people, and spend the night dancing!

Besides that, you can head to the casinos, with India’s best casinos located in Goa. For a unique experience, visit the Mandovi River, where there are casinos on boats!

Wrapping It Up

There is so much to see and do in Goa, and as it opens up to digital nomads, there are many coworking spaces you can visit and spend whole days in. That way, you can get your job done and head on out to explore the amazing attractions after!

Here are a few things you should remember before you head to Goa, though:

The visa situation

There are different types of visas to apply for in India, with the most popular among digital nomads being the tourist visa. Those with tourist visas can stay in India for up to 180 days. You can even extend your stay if you wish, doing so online!

Best time to visit

The best time to visit Goa is between November to February, as the temperatures are just about perfect for the beaches, and it’s fairly cool at night. If you want to go during the summer, that is from March to May but watch out, as it would be too hot to go around and many beach resorts are closed during off season.

How to travel around Goa

Unfortunately, transportation in Goa isn’t as easy compared in other countries. That said, there are modes of public transportation you can take to roam around the area. There are buses, taxis, tuk-tuks, and motorcycle taxis. It’s possible to rent private vehicles such as cars, motorcycles, or scooters, which give you more freedom to move around.

Hopefully you found insight into what it’s like to be a digital nomad in Goa and where you can work! Keep these coworking spaces in mind as you plan your trip to Goa. Have fun!
