5 Awesome Ways To Have An Unconventional Slow Vacation In Goa

Whether you live in a metro city or in the smaller ones, there’s one fact accepted unanimously- no other place in India parties like Goa does! Flights to Goa aren’t even expensive if booked off-season or well in advance. However, what if you want to spend a rather soulful holiday? Fret not, the Portuguese haven can offer you the quintessential calm as well. Here are 5 things you can do to spend a quiet time in Goa.

1)     Yoga retreat
Several resorts and properties offer yoga sessions in their packages. Check out the dates well in advance though and go ahead with your flight tickets booking accordingly. Apart from that, you can even opt for workshops conducted by some of the best yogis of the country. People from all over the world come to Goa to experience this side. Eager souls of a plethora of nationalities head to Goa with one common goal, that is, discover your inner self. Check out Little Cove Yoga Holiday Retreat near Agonda beach for Ashtanga yoga, naturopathy and scrumptious organic meals. On the other hand, Ashiyana on the Mandrem beach will offer you spa, Turkish sauna along with yoga classes. You can also opt for Jamboree Creek Yoga (AirBnb) juxtaposing both indulgence and introspection. Meditate on the sounds of gushing waves as you open your eyes to a sight of sunsets.
2)    Baby sit a monkey
While there are an array of volunteer programmes, the one that really struck our fancy belongs to Primate Trust India. The monkey rescue center has volunteers signing up from across the globe that help take care of the monkeys and also raise funds. What’s more if you’re not available for a long duration, you can do volunteer part-time. You’re main job will be baby-sitting tiny little monkeys. Omg, how often do you get to experience that?
3)    Learn the local cuisine
Spend a day or two living in a backpacker’s hostel. It not only helps you connect with people from different walks of life but also gives you opportunities to develop your skills. You can in fact, exchange skills for accommodation. Sign up to accompany the chef to the local market and preparing a delicious meal of Goan cuisine. It’s an experience that will definitely heal you.
4)    Catch the stunning sunsets
Lying on the beach, shunning the noise and judgement, only to listen to the sultry waves, is the best feeling ever. Spend your time exploring quiet beaches of Goa. Kalacha beach, close to Mapusa spells solitude and serenity in one fell swoop. From golden sands to a souvenir market, you will be able to make the most of your trek to this beach. If you completely wish to avoid the market, head straight to Agonda and enjoy an unperturbed session of sunbathing. Catch a sunset and watch it paint the sky pink. Listen to your favourite music or have a heart-to-heart with your favourite person. Have your favourite beer. This moment right here, is what memories are made of.
5)    Chill.
Do nothing, laze around the pool. Eat. Pray. Love. Soon, you’ll have to get back to your cubicle, with a pile of work awaiting you. Why not just look pretty and gulp down that long-island iced tea and some sunlight?
