Is 3 days enough for Goa?

Yes, a three-day vacation to Goa is plenty to see all of the key sites and beaches. You can visit every enjoyable area, from Baga Beach to Candolim Beach, without missing anything. The serene atmosphere of these locations will undoubtedly take your breath away. In addition to the famous site, you will have ample time to participate in a variety of adventure activities such as paragliding, scuba diving, snorkeling, and swimming with dolphins.

From beach-hopping and dolphin spotting to meditation and yoga retreats, here is an ideal Goa Itinerary for 3-Days.

Day 1

Galgibaga Beach

Galgibaga Beach is ideal for those who like their beaches to be unspoiled and isolated. This natural beach, located just 20 minutes south of Palolem, has been spared from any tourist infrastructure, resulting in a calm beach devoid of people and litter! It is also one of Goa's four turtle nesting locations. If you're lucky, you might be able to see them hatch between November and February.  

Butterfly Beach

Butterfly Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in India if you don't mind the arduous way to get there. The only way to get to the beach is via boat from Palolem or by a difficult forest climb. The magnificent coved beach, on the other hand, is worth the difficult travel. Expect to encounter an abundance of butterflies, as well as rich marine life and breathtaking sunset vistas.

Day 2

After a relaxing day at the beach, you'll be revitalized and ready to go sightseeing. Let us provide some ideas for your second day in South Goa.

Yoga Class

Morning yoga with a traditional and experienced yoga instructor is an excellent way to begin the day. There are various sessions available in the Palolem region during peak season, but Aranya Yoga Ashram is one of the best. Their daily drop-in sessions are also accessible to both new and experienced students. Furthermore, if you want to become a yoga instructor, the courses available here are highly recommended.

Vasco Da Gama 

If you are even vaguely interested in Goa's colonial history, Vasco Da Gama is a must-see. This town is one of the oldest in Goa, and colonial structures and churches provide insight into Portuguese culture. Shri Ramnath Temple and St. Andrews Church are both worth a visit, as is the creepy Three Kings Church, which locals think is haunted. And if you have a hankering for additional beach time, there are plenty of options nearby. 

Visit a Spice Plantation

If you've ever wondered what all those amazing flavors in Indian food are, here is a terrific place to start. A guide will accompany you around the lush plantation, where you will come across different spice plants and trees. Following that, you may have a classic Goan supper made with fresh fruit and spices.  

Day 3

Dolphin Watching

Palolem Beach is a renowned destination for dolphin viewing in Goa. And various tour operators in town can organize this activity for you. Tours are available throughout the day, although the best times to see dolphins are early in the morning or around dusk. You may also incorporate island hopping into your itinerary.

Water Sports

The beaches in southern Goa are well known for their abundance of water sports activities. Scuba diving, jet skis, windsurfing, and parasailing are all available along the shore. 

Cooking Classes

After savoring the great local food for three days, why not take a cooking lesson and bring the recipes home to your loved ones? Cooking classes offer outstanding lessons in which you will learn to create many local delicacies from scratch under the supervision of a top culinary chef.
