Student Weekend in Goa You Don’t Want To Miss

Let’s face it. It’s hard for students to sort out their weekend plans. Semesters, projects and deadlines, they all beckon. At the most, you will spend your weekend in a coffee shop, going to movies or at the mall. If you are planning a weekend trip, Well guess what? We’ve got you sorted for the best Student Weekend in Goa You Don’t Want To Miss.

We are nearing the end of 2018. How about having a memorable experience of the year gone by? The cherry on the cake is a well-planned getaway to India’s most preferred holiday destination, Goa. We have left no stones unturned while planning this student weekend. So by the end of it all, you can check it off your bucket list. Read below.

Beach Experience

Yes, but we are not talking about Baga and Calangute. Visiting these beach in Goa has become so cliché. You probably not have considered dropping by the pristine beaches of South Goa. Have you heard about the white sands of Colva Beach or the clear blue waters of Palolem? Probably not. That’s because all this time the local taxi driver in Goa sold you the concept of Calangute and Baga.

TIP: It good to visit Calangute and Baga during the daytime. But at night, it becomes super crowded, especially during the weekends.

2 days are more than enough to explore South Goa.

Thrilling Watersports

You can’t complete your tropical holiday experience without the thrill of adventure water sports. Goa had a plethora to offer in terms of adventure sports. It’s a ritual among tourists to engage in at least one outdoor experience. Well, nothing to brag about, but we have more than 30 watersports activities happening in Goa this month (Google it).

A Wide Variety of Food

We can write a lot about the topic of food in Goa. The Goan cuisine has influences of the Portuguese. But if you follow certain dietary restriction then fret not. Along the coastal belt (and in major cities) there are a variety of restaurants. These restaurants specialize in North Indian and well as South Indian cuisine who offer Veg and Non- Veg dishes. The best place to experience the Food of Goa is at a beach shack facing the sea, like the one above. How cool is that!

Local Markets

These are not your typical “Chor Bazaars” and “Linking Roads”. Walk through the markets in Goa is altogether a different touristic experience. Some well know markets are the Mapusa Market, Panjim Market, Margao Market, and the Saturday Night Market. A worthy mention is the famed Anjuna Flea Market.

Our friends at MMT have a low down on the Street Markets in Goa.

Night Life

You better make some strong plans for this one. In December you can experience the best of nightlife in Goa. The best nightclubs and pubs are in North Goa. Not a problem if your hotel accommodation is in the North. You can easily make plans to go club hopping on a weekend. Sinq, Cafe Mambos, Club Titos are the best along the coast.


Plan to touchdown on a Thursday, experience all the above in Goa and get back to your daily grind on Monday.

That’s your 4 days Student Weekend in Goa You Don’t Want To Miss.
