Before it’s time to ride the New Year train and enter a new world (read: year), we must make a hell of a journey of what has yet remained. And for that, the beaches in Goa are waiting for you, my friend. From kissing your sweetheart or dancing with a stranger in serenity to partying hard with friends, Goa has it all. It’s all about happiness, tranquility, fun and booze (lots of it!). So, it’s time to get into the beast mode and celebrate. Get ready for an implosion of feelings, of love, nostalgia, and hope. Here are five beaches which you must visit on New Year to have an exhilarating experience:
If you are a trance lover, Anjuna beach is for you. Dive into the placid environment of this place and imagine a rusty beach shack with a cool rooftop at Curlies, where poolside parties are a big hit. Anjuna still retains the hippie’s charm with psychedelic and dope ambience. Also, if you want to get high, Shiva Valley is certainly for you. Celebrate your New Year in trance at Anjuna.
