things to do
4 - Agonda Beach ( Just 5Km away from Resort)
8 - Palolem Beach ( Just 5min drive from Resort)
Agonda is a great spot for sunbathing, relaxing and swimming, with still relatively few tourists and is a nice long pristine stretch of beach. Or, if you do need to party sometimes, Situated close to Palolem, Agonda is generally cheaper, quieter, hassle-free and has much less "touristic" feel. Agonda Beach basically has one long road parallel to the beach line, most rooms and bungalows for rent are located either between them or on the opposite side of the road. In the center of the beach, there is Agonda Church and even a local school/college to the right of it. It is also home to a lot of night parties that go on every night during the season.
Palolem Beach is just a 5 minute drive from the resort. Palolem beach is largely unspoiled and is inhabited by both local fishermen and by foreign tourists who live in shacks along the shore or in the main village itself. It is about one mile (approx 1.61 km) long and is crescent-shaped; one can view the entire beach from either end. Both ends of the beach consist of rocks jutting out into the sea. The depth of the sea increases gradually, being shallowest at the northern end of the beach, making it safe for average swimmers, and the currents are not fast.
Patnem beach is an appealing alternative to south Goa's popular Palolem beach, for those who don't want to be right in the middle of the action but still want some entertainment. Barely a 5 minutes walk from the resort, It's lined with beach shacks and huts, yet there's plenty of space for everyone to enjoy that perfect sunset. The lovely curved bay makes for glorious bathing and although not quite as calm and protected as Palolem beach, it also doesn't get the swell that Agonda beach, to the north, can have. Some water sports are also available here, although the short journey to Palolem beach will provide more options.
Yoga Training Centre
There are many yoga training options on the peaceful Patnem beach. These centres specialize in body and spirit wellness, to bring body and spirit into balance. Depending on your requirements you can take a yoga class or join one of the special yoga retreats. Meditation, Shiatsu, Reflexology, and Ayurvedic treatments are also available.
Cotigao Wildlife Sanctuary

Margao Shopping Market
The Margao market is one of the most famous and vibrant places in the whole of Goa. A picturesque 30 minute drive from the resort, Fishermen, local vegetable sellers and other shopkeepers offer a variety of wares for sale in Margao. Again, a great place to see more local life of Goa rather than just hit the sands. One special market here is called the ‘closed market’ or ‘Pimplapedd’ in Konkani.

Dudhsagar Falls (literally Sea of Milk) is a tiered waterfall located on the Mandovi River in the Indian state of Goa on Goa's border with Karnataka state. It is four-tiered. It is 60 km from Panaji city by road and 46 km from Madgaon railway junction by train. Dudhsagar Waterfalls, at 2,000 feet high, are the highest falls in India.

Cabo De Rama Beach
Cabo De Rama ….. Another beautiful beach that lines the coast of Goa. Palm trees line up the shoreline making it an ideal spot for couples with picnic baskets. Behind the beach is a steep cliff with a rocky, flat top and a set of crude steps leading down to the beach. On the left side of the beach a little into the sea is a boulder with a single tree atop it. This boulder can be reached sometimes when the tide is particularly low. While the beach has a bunch of ideal spots, it has no shacks or restaurants. So make sure you pack a nice big basket with goodies to get you through the day. To the south is the Portuguese Cabo de Rama Fort.
