The space and independence provided by vacations allow you to unwind and interact with your loved ones. As a result, a trip to Goa with children is an excellent alternative for a family vacation. While on vacation in this gorgeous location, there are a variety of activities for the entire family to enjoy. While most resorts in Goa offer family-friendly amenities and services, including fully-equipped kids’ clubs, there is still much to do beyond the hotel grounds for the whole family.
Goa is famed for its vibrant culture, open-minded people, and incredible lifestyle, earning it the moniker of “party destination.” However, it might also be a wonderful site for family vacations. Let us explore some of the best and exciting locations to enjoy with family and kids.
- Chill out at beaches
Goa and beaches can definitely be used as synonyms for each other and what can be the best way to keep children busy as well give them a chill time than a trip to the beach. Kids of all ages will be kept busy swimming, creating sandcastles, and participating in beach sports. Meanwhile, you can relax on a beach lounger with a good book and take a nap. There are many beaches to select from in Goa, but for ultimate seclusion, we prefer the ones in the south. If you want to experience the hustle and bustle of city life, head north to Ashwem, Morjim, Calangute, and Anjuna.
- Picnic at Dudhsagar falls
A family outing isn’t complete without a picnic. And until you witness the spectacular Dudhsagar Falls, it may not seem like a terrific activity to do in Goa with family! Pack a picnic lunch, gather the family, and head to Dudhsagar Falls to swim in its massive plunge pool, play board games in the surroundings, and spend some quality time together.
- Shop till you get tired
Girls like shopping, it is quite true, but there are times when boys also get trapped in the shopping attraction. And when it is Goa, girls and boys especially of older age get more excited and attracted to shopping. From costume jewellry to swimsuits and flip- flops you get everything you need. Flea markets, such as Arpora Night Market, are excellent places to find unique items. Spend your evenings dancing dominated by some great music and eating amazing food.
To stroll away into paradise, pack your rucksack and tighten your shoes. All you need is a pair of binoculars and a bottle of water to set out into the wilderness for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. Our paths and routes are designed for a variety of age groups and provide adventure and thrill at every turn, transporting you to a world you have never seen before. Your children will take a trip in the woods with a young naturalist.
- Climb or drive up to the Charpora Fort
There are a few forts in Goa, but they are all pretty much gone. The Charpora Fort is an example of a fort that must have seen better days in the past but now sits in ruins. However; since bringing the beauty of the fort in the movie ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ the fort has gained a surge in popularity among youngsters especially.
There are two methods to climb to the top of the fort. Climbing up from the Vagator beach is a bit more challenging, but if your kids are small, forgo this alternative and instead drive up to the Charpora Fort parking lot and hike up. It’s a short hike of about 10-15 minutes that rewards you with beautiful views all around.
- Eat and enjoy, drink and dance
Goa apart from sceneries also has a lot to offer. Goan cuisine is a strange mash-up of several gourmet styles, including Konkani, Saraswat, Portuguese, and Islamic. One of the best things to do in Goa with your family is to go on a food trial. Experiment with everything and be a little daring. Homegrown eateries line the streets, elegant cafés serve world cuisine and fusion cuisines, and, of course, the beach shacks will prepare you a delicious seafood lunch using the day’s fresh catch. Dining out with family is without a doubt one of the most enjoyable things to do in Goa.
