February holiday in sunny Goa

We arranged a bachelorette party with a friend and went to conquer the Russian corner in Indian Goa – we flew to Morjim. I decided to write, while my impressions of the trip are still fresh.

Why Russian? Because it is true that Russian language is heard on every corner, compatriots walk around, and restaurants and cafes bear Russian names. “Christmas trees,” for example. Well, where are the Christmas trees in Goa? 🙂 But this did not upset us at all, but, on the contrary, even allowed us to adapt better.

The weather was gorgeous – 35-37 C, the water in the sea – 28 C, there was no rain. In my opinion, February is the perfect time to relax. We lived in a small two-star hotel “Nifa”. A great option for not the most fastidious tourists 200 meters from the beach. Yes, I think it’s better and not necessary – this is India. Here you need to feel the color. It makes no sense to live in a luxury hotel. If you prefer this type of vacation, then you are still better off in the Dominican Republic.

The main attraction of Morjim is a wide sandy beach, which stretches for 3 km! It is clean, there are no crowds of tourists, it is not completely laden with sun loungers. There are sun loungers, but they occupy a very small area near the necks (bars), where you can immediately order yourself fresh ones. And the whole beach is strewn with small mink crabs. They are so tiny, it was funny to watch them. We came to the beach every evening to watch the sun go down into the Arabian Sea. And here you can see groups of people with multi-colored gymnastic rugs who meditate or do yoga. And at the end of the beach, the so-called “Turtle Beach”, if you are not too lazy and wait for the dawn, you can see how huge Ridley turtles sail to lay eggs. A fantastic sight!

Despite the fact that the village is quite small, in addition to the beach, you can see several local attractions. The main ones are related to religion. It is worth going to the temple of Sri Moraji, which is located among a coconut grove. Thousands of pilgrims come here for religious holidays, but, despite his celebrity, he looks a bit dilapidated. In addition to Buddhist and Hindu temples, there is even a Catholic church Milagres in Morjim.

And a kind of local attraction can be called multi-colored fishing boats that are piled on the beach and every morning the fishermen go to sea for a fresh catch.

A few words about prices in Goa. The main dishes that are eaten here are, of course, seafood and everything related to rice. Lunch with curry chicken on average cost $ 2, dinner without alcohol – $ 4-5. By our standards, this is very cheap. Freshes on the beach from $ 0.8, beer from $ 1, and fruits and vegetables on the market from $ 0.7 to $ 3 per kg. The most expensive are avocados and pomegranates. They will feed you equally well everywhere, but if you recommend something, I advise Green Apple Restaurant – they cook deliciously and inexpensively.

Goa with all its minuses, like all of India, must be loved for fantastic sunsets and kind people. And also for its price and culture. And it doesn’t matter that the sanitation leaves much to be desired – stray dogs walk at every step and sometimes cows walk along the beach. It creates a flavor and it just needs to be accepted. I really liked the stay and I will definitely be back again.
