View from the Tiracole Fort's rooftop restaurant Me posing with the menu

Tiracole is a beautiful area, and there is an old fort here that I highly recommend exploring. I visited the Tiracole Fort with my parents during our weekend trip here. The fort has a deep history connected to the Goan Liberation Movement. It was annexed by the Portuguese and served as a prison for Goan freedom fighters. We also tried snacks in the rooftop restaurant of the fort. My favorite was the Caldo Verde Soup and Spinach and Quinoa Salad, both vegetarian-friendly. Besides the food, I enjoyed the view of the ocean and surrounding islands the most.

13. Nalanda Retreat

Contributed by Trip101 Local Expert, Aditi Roy

Not all holidays to Goa comprise toxic nights and hungover mornings; some are meant to rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul. And, Nalanda Retreat, I am told by a trusted friend, is just what you should opt for if some R&R is what you are looking for. It’s the perfect spot for you if you are looking to unplug and find their zen. The staff here is extremely friendly and tend to go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable. And, they also have some kick-ass local tour recommendations. Plus, there’s also an in-house beachfront restaurant where you can enjoy some delicious, locally-sourced local and international dishes - talk about treating your body as a temple, right?

14. Inner Living Ayurveda and Yoga Retreat

Contributed by Trip101 Local Expert, Aditi Roy

One of the things that always prevents a lot of us from taking some well-deserved “me-time” such as an enriching Ayurveda and yoga break is the price tag it comes with. But, when one of my closest friends shared about her recent retreat experience at Inner Living Ayurveda and Yoga Retreat, I was quiet surprised, and pleasantly so! I am not exaggerating but the moment I stepped here, it’s like all the stress and exhaustion left my body. What followed are a few days of ultimate bliss and Ayurvedic wholseomess. They also have an in-house doctor who helped me with some diet issues I was facing at the time. All in all, I came out healthier and happier than when I went it.
