    Suggest 3 days Goa trip

    Hi friends

    I will be visiting Goa with my wife during first week of November and want to stay somewhere near to Mapusa, as its the place where Volvo from Pune will drop us in Goa and from Mapusa only we have to board the Volvo back to Pune. We are looking to visit beaches, beach side parties, discos and want to do some water sports too. We are not very keen to visit old buildings in South Goa as we don't have that much time in Goa. Specific suggestions on beaches, eating joints, discos and water sports places will be highly appreciated.

    I have not booked the tickets yet and dates are flexible.

    Welcome to India Travel Forum

    If you want to stay near to Mapusa only then you should be visiting Anjuna, Calangute, Siolim, Arambol and Bagha beach additionally as you said you are going with you wife then you can go to Miramar beach too (more of a family type beach in Panjim but its good for evening walk. Goa has a lot more to offer apart from the beaches so I would recommend exploring the old town aswell to get a feel of the place and enjoy the local food.

    For water sports you can go to Bagha or Calangute beach as they have many water sports available there

    For disco and eating joints you can should not miss Tito's in Saunta Vaddo, Calangute and Curlies beach restaurant in Sanmiguel Waddo, Anjuna

    Contact for Titos: +91 982 276 5002
    Contact for Curlies: +91 982 216 8628

    Happy Holidays in advance

    Bird Watching

    Goa's equitable climate and rich vegetation support an abundance of birds. This large and diverse population can survive because of its varied habitat that ranges from open forests to shrubs, tracks and dense forests which are ideal for breeding.

    Visitors will probably notice a few about town and in temple grounds. On the other hand, a keen bird-watcher will find much to get excited about and a trip to one of the nearby sanctuaries or along a river early in the morning will be particularly rewarding.

    Goa is a bird watcher's paradise and keen bird-watchers will be in seventh heaven, and even those who have previously had little interest in birds will wonder at the richness of the birdlife.

    Common varieties of birds to be seen in Goa include four different species of eagles, as well as other birds of prey such as kites, buzzards, kestrels and ospreys. There are five types of pigeons, six types of doves, five varieties of cuckoos, six of kingfishers and another six of woodpeckers.

    There is enough here to keep even the most ardent enthusiast busy for months. What's more, you don't even have to go very far to see most of these birds. An early morning or evening spent beside one of the rivers, or better still in the boat of a local ramponkar, drifting along the waterways will reveal amazing numbers of unusual species.

    For those who are interested in seeing more, a trip to the Dr Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary on Chorao Island is recommended. Other sites of interest are the wetlands at Carambolim (12km east of Panaj and at Shiroda (40km south-east of Panaji, in Ponda taluka).

    A wonderful variety of birds can also be seen readily in Bondla and the other wildlife sanctuaries near the Western Ghats. For seabirds, Morjim beach is recommended.

    Some of the sights inside Ancestral Goa are :

    * Art Gallery & Handicraft Center * Mirabai Sculpture * Big Foot Dance Floor
    * Casa da Dona Maria * Anand Lotlikar's Ghor * Legend of Big Foot
    * The Farmer's House * Cross, Spring & Rakandar * The Fisherman's House
    * Escola da Musica * Bhati - the feni distillery * Tinto - the village market
    * Taverna - the country liquor shop * Goan Artisans * Bird Habitat
    * Spice Yard & Rubber Plantation
