After relaxing on the outside porch we decided to explore.
We took a walk along the beach which was stunning, golden sands big ...
... and 2 people from Leeds (your typical English people – loud and lairy) and we soon all hatched a plan to meet at 9 for some drinking and head down the beach for some trance (what Northern Goa is typically known for).
After finally using some wifi we went on a walk down the beach which was a bit grotty tbh – oily and dark sand, the sea not looking that appetising and it was pretty empty apart from 2 girls braving it in bikinis trying to get a tan. I ...
