Goa island. Where is located on the world map, attractions, recreation

Goa is a small but popular holiday destination for Europeans. In terms of area and population, this state ranks 26th out of 29. On the world map, this is a small area in India. Those who have already visited Goa recommend staying there from November to February (it is advisable to book tickets in advance).

Where is the island of Goa, coordinates on the world map

The state of Goa is located on the western coast of India, in its middle part. On the world map, it has the following coordinates: 15. 38355 north latitude and 73. 84291 east longitude. The total area of ​​the territory is just over 3700 sq. km. At the same time, the length of the beach line is 105 km, inland Goa has a length of 65 km.

On land, the state borders Maharashtra (to the north) and Karnataka (to the south and east). The western part is the coastline of the Arabian Sea.

The state itself additionally has an internal division into Northern and Southern parts, the common capital of which is Panaji with a population of just under 250,000 people (as of 2017). On the territory of Goa there are mountains (Sahyardi, in the east) and plains, as well as rivers (Mandovi, Zuari), which flow into the sea.

Regions of Goa

Goa, on the world map, is located mostly on the coast of India. At the same time, the Southern states occupy 2.5 times more area than the server ones. Their coastline is over 60 km out of 100 km. The rest is occupied by the northern and central parts (the central part is rarely indicated, but it is also available in GOA).

South Goa is designed for wealthy people who choose a relaxing holiday. The infrastructure for active recreation of tourists is poorly developed here. The main view is spending time on the beach or relaxing in hotels and restaurants. They are located away from each other, which provides peace and quiet.

You can restore beauty and health when visiting massages and spas. From active recreation, sightseeing and surroundings are recommended here. The sand on the beaches of South Goa is light, which makes the water in the sea seem very clean.

North Goa, despite its smaller area, provides all kinds of entertainment and is an active place for recreation. You can stay for a vacation in middle-class hotels or rent houses / villas.

Nightlife is developed in North Goa, these are clubs, discos and parties. Due to the constant noise and crowds in the settlements and on the beaches, this part of Goa is not recommended for families with children.

If desired, you can find less noisy areas, you can arrange an indigenous resident as a nanny (these services are provided for a separate fee). The beaches of North Goa are covered with yellow or gray sand (their color is due to volcanic origin), which makes the beaches look dirtier.

The beaches themselves are popular not only with tourists, but also with local residents, so they are crowded.

Central Goa is the capital of Panaji. It is the most populous part of the state. Not famous for hotels and recreation. The main attraction is the Portuguese quarter and the carnival before the start of Lent.

With a general comparison of North and South Goa, in both parts you can find affordable housing and a relaxing holiday. To do this, you need to prepare in advance for the vacation and find out all the nuances in the agency where the vacation tour will be issued.

In addition, it should be taken into account that in the southern part of Goa there is a fertilizer factory that pollutes the local air. When choosing a voucher, it is recommended to arrange a place of residence further from the plant.
