Cheap areas to stay in Goa

You certainly don’t have to splurge to have a perfect Goa break. There are cheap hotels all over the state, and many have pride of place along that famous coastline. Down in South Goa, budget-friendly accommodation can be found overlooking swathes of sand, such as those at serene Varca Beach – one of the quietest and most unspoiled coastal spots in Goa. You can also choose to stay in Margao, the cultural heart of the state, or – if you’re here to have a wild time – pick a cheap hotel close to lively Calangute.

Cheap hotels in Goa

Renzo’s Inn may be cheap, but you get all the perks of a posher pad, thanks to its sweeping oceanfront views and spacious rooms where you can flop down happily after a hard day of water sports and wandering. Yo Yo Goa is close to Vagator Beach and is just a short drive from Calangute. Its comfortable guestrooms all have their own refrigerators, which is great if you fancy storing some much-needed cooling drinks, and there’s a pool on-site, too. Another budget option is Seaview Resort, a simple and welcoming haven on unspoiled Patnem Beach.

Where to find the best restaurants in Goa

You don’t have to spend a lot to get the real taste of Goa. Along the beaches, there are plenty of street food vendors serving up everything from crispy, spicy bhajis to ros omelets – these are as Goan as it gets, with the traditional egg omelet covered in a rich, chicken-infused curry sauce. There are also plenty of cheap places to sit and eat, around popular areas like Calangute and Panaji. Seek out small, family-run establishments where you can dig into classic fish thali, or pork vindaloo, without breaking the bank.

Cheap things to do in Goa

There’s no denying that many people come to Goa to party. If that’s you, then one of the places to be is Calangute. As well as offering pumping nightlife, it’s also a place to explore by day when on a budget, thanks to its colorful markets and general energetic vibe. The complete opposite awaits in Old Goa. This is the old colonial capital of the region, and is where you can go on a trip through time, admiring the ornately carved churches – including the Baroque splendor of the Basilica of Bom Jesus. Make sure to venture inside to see the marble floors and gilded altars. More history can be seen at the Goa State Museum, which features Hindu sculptures, ancient lottery machines, and a table used by the fearsome Inquisition during colonial times. Afterwards, hit the beaches of Anjuna or Colva to have a night of fun without spending too much cash.

Best ways to get around Goa

It doesn’t cost much to get around Goa. There are plenty of buses which will get you from A to B with a minimum of fuss. Then there are the yellow and black autorickshaws, which look cute but are also very practical and won’t hurt the holiday budget too much. Alternatively, daredevils can always jump on the back of a motorcycle taxi – it’s a quintessentially Goan experience you won’t forget.
