With palm-fringed beaches and balmy waters, Goa is India's prime beach destination with a popularity that reached its zenith in the 1970s as a hippie haven. With 101 km of coastline, there's no shortage of beaches whether it's the lively resorts of North Goa or the more laid-back beaches in the south. Goa's Portuguese colonial past is most keenly felt in the state capital of Panaji, also known as Panjim, home to a number of open plazas lined with white-washed cathedrals and Portuguese architecture.
