South Goa, India
South Goa is one of the two districts that comprise the state of Goa, India
Since charter flights began to go to Goa in the 1980's south Goa has become a popular destination for the quiet (all inclusive) beach holiday. The beaches are as good as (or better than) the more popular northern Goa resorts, plus there is a lasting impression of the Portuguese heritage left behind in the churches and general architectural relics of their colonial presence. The quiet rural aspects of 'paddy' and slow pace of life here soon rub off on the visitor.
The district of South Goa has an area of around 2,000km² and a population of about 600,000. It is bounded by North Goa District to the north, Utara Kannada District of Karnataka state to the east and south, and by the Arabian Sea to the west.
From north to south the coastal places of note are:
Vasco-da-Gama, a small, busy commercial centre, dominated by import / export and freight businesses.
Dabolim: Location of the (International) Airport.
Bogmalo Beach, one of the first places to be developed for national and international tourism, being close to the capital Panjim (Panaji).
Cansaulim village marks the beginning of the southern Goa beach strip.
Colva Beach and namesake village are about 8km west of the southern region's primary town Margao. With palm fringed fine sandy beach, well worth a visit.

Cape Rama Fort (Fort Cabo-de-Rama)
