Sightseeing plan for South Goa


I will be travelling this weekend to Goa and will be staying at one of the resorts near Cavelossim beach. Am looking for some help to draw up a plan for sightseeing including the areas nearby to my place of stay.

It will also be helpful to get advice on the possible modes of transport for sightseeng. Will it be fine to hire a cab for a day ? We are a couple and have a 2 1/2 year baby with us. We are planning to stay for 3 days.

South Goa isn't exactly over-endowed with places of interest, but there are a few. For a beautiful beach, visit Agonda. The Palacio do Deao in Quepem is worth a visit (and if you ring in advance, you can book lunch there - www.palaciododeao.com). The food is quite different to anything you'll find in restaurants. You've got your fill of markets in Mumbai, and I can't imagine that Margao covered market has much to offer you! I believe you can still look around Braganza Manor (old Portuguese house) in Chandor, which is really interesting, and Chandor is a lovely village as well - very clean and tidy.

While you're up in North Goa, if you have time, a whistle stop tour of Panjim is interesting as well. Fontainhas for its beautifully preserved and brightly painted houses, and Altinho for BIG houses and the views, plus a walk along the river. There are nice restaurants there as well - my favourite is Viva Panjim because they make a mushroom xacutti to die for!
