Popular Miramar (for some mainstream fun)
Miramar is the beach area of Panjim, the capital of Goa, and is one of the most frequented beaches of Goa. It is situated at the confluence of the Mandovi River and the Arabian Sea, giving much needed respite from the hectic town. Explore the beach in the day and head to one of the many watering holes in Panaji or go sightseeing to one of the gorgeous churches that Goa is known for. If you are travelling with children, the planetarium is a must-see.
