Halfway down India’s west coast, Goa lazes idly – an un-rushed Arcadia of sublime, seashell-coloured sands, slow turquoise tides and slothful palm trees. A former Portuguese outpost, this is India at its most laid-back: a feast of crumbling Catholic chapels and timeworn temples, an interior of silent lakes and slow backwaters, and a natural habitat to leopards, lizards and lively monkeys.
Once the final stop of the 1960s hippie trail, Goa continues to keep up the custom of selling flower power ideals and free love alongside its bohemian jewellery, sacks of spices, sweet teas and Kashmiri carpets.
As boutique boudoirs spring up alongside heritage hotels and private villas, tourists revel in unspoilt coastline, frosted beers from thatched beach huts and delectable cuisine like spicy prawn balchão and Goan fish curry.
