Day 1: Arrive in North Goa

Welcome to Goa, India’s smallest and arguably most idyllic state. Head north from the airport to the region’s most exclusive beachside location, and your own private paradise. Overnight at Elsewhere Goa.

Day 2: North Goa

Wake up to your blissful surroundings – a former coconut plantation with its own semi-private section of beach, separated from the rest of Goa thanks to a winding saltwater creek. Overnight at Elsewhere Goa.

Day 3: North Goa

Stroll along the beach, take a dip in the Arabian Sea or visit nearby Chapora River. Spend the afternoon on the terrace watching dolphins frolic near the shore. Overnight at Elsewhere Goa.

Day 4: North Goa

Consider a day trip to Panaji, Goa’s Portuguese-inspired state capital. Later, visit nearby Old Goa – nicknamed ‘Rome of the East’, this was once among Asia’s most powerful cities. Overnight at Elsewhere Goa.

Day 5: North Goa

Spend the day on the beach, sipping coconut water and relaxing with a good book. If you’re visiting between September and February, you may even spot nesting olive ridley turtles. Overnight at Elsewhere Goa. Image: TruTourism/Flickr CC BY 2.0

Day 6: North Goa

Dudhsagar Falls – the second-highest waterfall in India – makes for an excellent extended day trip. Best seen right after the monsoon, the four-tiered falls’ name translates as ‘Sea of Milk’. Overnight at Elsewhere Goa.

Day 8: North Goa to South Goa

Travel down the coast to South Goa, arriving at your next hidden destination. You know you’ve arrived after walking across a bamboo bridge and marvelling at the scene in front of you. Overnight at Dwarka Eco Beach Resort.

Day 9: South Goa

Spend the day relaxing on the beach – which is more of a secluded cove – or in the pristine, palmfringed natural lagoon that sits behind it. Overnight at Dwarka Eco Beach Resort.
