Sunsets are special for more reasons than you would imagine. For one, they define romance, they bring out the most mesmerizing colours in the sky forming landscapes that warm the cockles of your heart and above all, they give you the feeling that no matter what’s going on in life, the world is beautiful and it is all going to be okay. Whether you are with a loved one or enjoying your solitude, sunsets will always prove to be magical! When it comes to sunsets in India, no place comes close to Goa. So, if you are planning a trip to India’s prime beach destination, here are five places you must hit to witness the magic of sunsets!
- Chapora Fort
Made famous by loads of Bollywood movies the Chapora Fort is by far the best place to witness sunsets in Goa. The beautiful cliff gives you a great view of the wide beach, far-off horizon, palm trees and the magnificent setting sun.
Anjuna is one of the best places to relax with a chilled beer in hand, some good food and your feet on the table and the sun going down with the sky changing colours from blue to yellow to orange.
- Palolem Beach
One of the most beautiful beaches of south Goa, Palolem is known for the stunning landscape it offers to nature lovers and photographers. Add a setting sun to the marvellous white sand beach dotted with palm groves and what you have is a sight that will stay with you forever!
As you go towards the extreme north of Goa, you reach Arambol, one of Goa’s prime beaches! Although the main beach has become commercial now, if you take a walk ahead where you see a bunch of secluded rocks by the sea, you can get to the perfect spot for a sunset. Sit on one of the rocks and enjoy a great sunset with no obstacles in your line of sight!
Located right next to the Chapora Fort is the stunning Vagator beach, one of north Goa’s biggest attractions. Right by the beach, you will see many beautiful shacks with tables and beach beds overlooking the beach with a clear view of the setting sun. The breeze, the booze and the sunset together make Vagator one of the finest sunset points in Goa!
Located in the most popular place in Goa and thronged by dozens of tourists and foreigners alike Baga Beach has the most beautiful sunset. The beach in the day time is a rush of people, water sports, shacks, by night it converts into a lovely chilled out scene with music, good food, drinks and also a perfect place to watch the sunset.
