Relax on the tropical sands of your unforgettable Goan All Inclusive holiday
You’ll be on India’s western coast in no time, as flights from the UK to Goa International Airport take nine hours – just enough time for you to plan excursions and watch a film or two.
Goa’s All Inclusive resorts give you easy access to the glorious shores as well as delicious dining options and plenty of fun hotel day activities. Located in several regions around Goa, these glamorous venues incorporate a mixture of Indian and Portuguese culture. Candolim holidays are for those looking for a little rest and relaxation. Things move slowly on this side of Goa, and All Inclusive hotels here are all about chilling out on welcoming sands – the beach spans eight kilometres and is a peaceful alternative to the party sands nearby, with resorts sitting right on the shore.
Cavelossim follows suit, with relaxing vibes encasing this seaside village in southern Goa. There are a few shack bars and restaurants, but most All Inclusive holidays to Cavelossim are all about bathing in the sun. Meanwhile, Calangute holidays turn the volume up a notch, with lively nightlife, watersports and a busy beach scene. All Inclusive holidays to Calangute benefit from the fantastic amenities nearby, like colourful markets and fantastic international restaurants.
The beaches in Goa are the stuff of dreams, with beautiful soft sand and cooling breezes from the Arabian Sea. The coastlines here are varied, some with busy sands full of visitors and beach parties, and others tranquil getaways and secluded basking spots. Baga Beach is one of the most popular spots in Goa and sees thousands of visitors each summer, for good reason. Baga has fantastic amenities including sunloungers and parasols, as well as paragliding, kayaking, snorkelling and jet ski rentals.
Varca Beach is slightly less crowded and has over 10 kilometres of beach. It’s also home to the local fishing community so you’ll see wooden boats lining some of the shoreline. Of course none of these beaches can best Calangute’s shores, perfect for families during the day and crowds of party goers at night.
What’s included in your holiday
