Laundry services are available everwhere, shampoo etc, no problem but do take your own sun lotions.

Travel light, leave the high heels and heated rollers at home anyting goes in Goa.

As for a birthday treat wouldn't like to comment as its horses for courses (thats not a tesco joke)

I like to take the Simple range of toiletries as there's no perfume to attract the mosies. You can buy all you want in Goa but not sure about unperfumed.

Re buying clothes when you get to Goa - unless you're quite slim I wouldn't bank on getting stuff to fit.

Especially swimwear - if you're anything above a 34B you don't stand much chance.

Agree with Eddie about sun cream, take enough to last you as some you buy can be fake - and you WILL burn.

Have a great holiday.


buy mozzie plug in & spray repellants when you get there, very cheap and effective.

You will have an amazing time. Toiletries are cheap - head to Newtons - they have a good selection.

We had an nice meal at Brittos Baga. or you could try The setting is awesome , especially at sunset. Grab a Tuk Tuk to get there.

We also had a great meal at Souza Louba www.souzalobo.com. You could reserve a table on the beach for dinner.

You can easily get laundry done- so rather leave space to shop :)

Have a blast!

For a special meal you could take Mick to Au Reverie at the bottom of Holiday Street, excellent food and lovely setting. or Jamies in Baga, amazing food and athmosphere also.

For a special treat or just to watch the sunset try Thalassa greek restaurant on top of the cliff at little vagator , Tel. 09850033537.Best to book as it is popular. Not too far from Candolim in a taxi , you could even spend the day on the beach there.
