A few days in GoaHi all,
my friend and I will have a few days in Goa towards the end of Feb. I have been reading the guide to get an idea about where to stay but I am getting confused!
We want to stay somewhere where it is quietish - not too crazy!! It will be right at the end of 5 weeks travelling so we would like somewhere we can relax, however, it would also be nice to go out for a drink and a dance. We are young, so it would be nice to stay around other young people - I have heard there are sections that attract younger crowds, as well as other areas that attract older retirees etc.
Can anyone suggest which part of Goa we should stay??
Thank you, Meg.

1I would suggest benaulim which is just a few kms from madgaon which i feel is cheaper than north goa
Dont stay in a hotel ,but in somebodys house who keeps tourists
But most foreigners stay in north goa anjuna -vagator etc
many also go to palolem
lots of threads on this topic

2Palolem-beautiful beach,best in Goa.Laid back,has a hippie feel it you choose.
Colva-just north of Benaulim,with much less crime.Colva has friendly restos and music,but not on a western level of good music.Also a big plus,in Colva,the beach is right there ..In Benaulem,after a sunset and drinks on the beach,you have a 2-3K walk on a dark,deserted road,back to your hotel.Plus you must make this walk to visit the lacking shops.Colva is better.

4The beaches of Gokarna are more laid back and more basic housing.Beach huts really.Plus some housing off the beach.Must carry alot to your beach hut.(water,beer,food)
I think this place is to quiet for your stated needs.Go with Colva or Palolem........
I am going here to get away with my woman,and enjoy a few peaceful moments of the Arabian Sea.
