Goa is known for its coastal beauty, which is offered by multiple pristine beaches in its Northern and Western parts. Panoramic view of the emerald green sea, white sandy surfaces to walk, rest and relax under the shades of coconut and palm trees, the breathtaking view of the rising and setting, sun, traditional music, dances and mouthwatering sea foods together make Goa a perfect vacation spot. The beaches are certainly the biggest attractions of Goa tourism, but the scope to explore nature in this beautiful coastal state is certainly not limited within white sandy beaches. There are several other places to visit in Goa.
To make an off-beat Goa trip you can visit some ‘not so famous’ but beautiful spots like Dudhsagar, Alorna Fort, Budbudyanchi Tali, Netravali and Arvelam Caves. Budbudyanchi Tali is a tank of bubbles (budbud is hindi word for bubble) and is considered as a very sacred place. The sacred bubble tank is attached to Gopinath temple in the Netravali village at Sanguam Taluka, South Goa. The tali (pond) or lake is actually a laterite masonry where a laterite pedestal stands in the centre. Bubbles keep popping up on the water in a particular rhythm as a result of a natural phenomenon and attract visitors. Situated at a distance of 60 kilometers from Panaji, the state capital, Dudhsagar is a stunning waterfalls. Broad streams of water come down in high force from a mountain peak and appear like streams of milk from a distance. The white streams of water turn into a cascading waterfall towards the bottom and the falls offers a great charm.
