Where to stay in Goa?

If you are looking for a more isolated quieter place in Goa to spend your time at, head to Patnem, just over the headland from Palolem, or Agonda, where it is quite less developed and you can find upmarket hut camps and family guesthouses to stay at. For the hippie scene, head to Arambol, where you have all the yoga and holistic therapy sessions held.

If you are a wildlife enthusiast, visit the nature reserves at Cotigao and Netravali in the far south.
