Goa, the most famous sea side resorts in India has always been a attraction for the tourists who want to be close to the sea, sand and enjoy sun. The name Goa comes from the pastoral and cattle herding communities (Go) who migrated to Goa in the prehistoric period.
Goa enjoys a stable climate without much variation throughout the year. The tourist season continues round the year although the best season to visit is from October and February.
594 kms. south of Mumbai and in between the Western Ghats and the Arabian Sea is Goa,stretching 100 kms. in length and 50 kms. in breadth. Although mostly flat, this state rises gradually to the Sahyadri Ranges as one travels inland.
The Sahyadri Range is a source to many rivers running through Goa most important being Zuari and Mandovi. They flow westwards into the Arabian Sea.
Goa has Hindu population in majority but the life style and culture remains that of the Portuguese. And who can forget Feni, the locally brewed liquor which is popular as much among the tourist as it is among the locals.
