What is special
 
Goa stretches on a 131-km-long coastline and is described as 'the pearl of the east' and a paradise unmatched. It offers honeymoon couples in India exotic relaxation with entertainment and celebration of life and love amidst Gothic churches, age-old ruins, palm-fringed beaches, coconut groves, ferry rides, and bubbly folk music. Here are few places you must see in the land of sun, sand and sea, all woven together.
Places to visit
Colva beach is 6kms. from Margao, sun-drenched with palm fringes all entwined in a magical fabric that is Goa. Passionate honeymooners can stroll hand in hand down the beach, dancing by the camp fires at midnight, singing songs to the beat of a guitar in silver moonlight.

Backwater cruises down the Mandovi and Zuari rivers, dolphin cruises on the high seas, adventure sports and water sports - para sailing, wind surfing and water skiing will leave you enchanted.
Best Season to visit
Goa has a moderate temperature. May is the hottest month while January and February are the coldest. Tropical weather prevails in the rest of the year. Southwest monsoon brings rain in Goa between June and September. July is the month that receives maximum rainfall while February gets least amount of rain.

Goa can be visited any time of the year. But the time Goa reveals itself best is the height of monsoons from mid-July to late September, and peak winters from November end to mid February.
