Beach lovers! 11 water sports you need to try

Goa’s beaches are obviously the main attraction of the state. But it’s not only the land that is dotted with people. If you look skywards,  you’ll find some in the sky screaming their lungs out!

If you are a water sports junkie, Goa is the treasure you have been looking out for, hosting loads of beach activities. So skim the waves, surf the seas, glide the sky and wave at the dolphins. Here is a brief list along with the price range and durations.

But please note, with the exception of White water rafting all water sports are shut during the monsoon due to the prevailing winds and rough seas. Nevertheless, don’t be disheartened my fellow readers. This is the perfect opportunity for you to start researching and planning your next holiday to Goa.
