Goa is a state in western India with coastlines stretching along the Arabian Sea. Its long history as a Portuguese colony prior to 1961 is evident in its preserved 17th-century churches and the area’s tropical spice plantations.
Goa is also known for its beaches, ranging from popular stretches at Baga and Palolem to those in laid-back fishing villages such as Agonda. Feni, a cashew based spirit made exclusively in Goa, is the most popular drink in the region and forbidden to be sold outside of Goa. Dudhsagar Falls (literally translated as “Sea of Milk”) is a 1,000 foot high, four-tiered waterfall on the Mandovi River.
