If your plans to go to Goa with friends ever worked out, congratulations! But if you've been planning that trip for *years* now and you just can't seem to bring all your friends together, it's time to ditch that plan (for now). Instead, grab your boyfriend and head to the beach paradise for a romantic trip! Need ideas? Worry not, we're here to help with some romantic things you can do with bae, besides lounging along the beach all day.
1. Get A Couples' Massage
Vacations are all about blowing off steam, so why don't you start yours off with a luxurious massage? While getting a solo massage can be a treat in itself, surprise your boyfriend by booking a couples massage. Not only will you feel rejuvenated, but it'll also be a great bonding experience for you and your partner. Plus, you won't be out of options, Goa has a ton of luxury spas around! So grab your bae, lie down and let the massage work its magic!
Thought you could only get the houseboat experience in Kashmir? Think again. Houseboats are available for rent on a per-night basis on the beautiful Chapora river, complete with a master bedroom, living room, the deck, washroom and a kitchen area. We can't think of anything more romantic than spending the night alone with your partner in a boat on the water, can you?
3. Have A Candle-Lit Dinner By The Beach
You might think this one is cliched, but you can't really go wrong with it. Just head to any quiet beach (or a loud one, if you're a couple who enjoys the liveliness of parties), grab a table in the sand, and sip on some wine as you lovingly gaze into your partners' eyes. The sound of the crashing waves, the light ocean breeze and some delectable Goan food are perfect ingredients to an ideal date. Cheesy? Maybe. Effective? Always!
4. Go For A Hot Air Balloon Ride
If you're looking for an activity that's romantic AND adventurous, then look no further. The Goa tourism department organises hot hair balloon rides in collaboration with a private company. You'll be able to float up to 2,500 feet in the air while taking in gorgeous 360-degrees aerial views of Goa. If you're planning to pop the question, this would be the ideal way to do it - just make sure you book a private tour and don't forget the bubbly!
Sure, beaches are ultra-romantic, but if you want to take a break from lounging by the waves, rent a motorcycle for the day and explore Goa's wildlife sanctuaries. Picture this: you cosying up to your partner while the two of you ride through a beautiful forest, spotting exotic flora and fauna in their natural habitat! Sounds appealing, doesn't it?
6. Stay In A Shack By The Beach
While we LOVE luxury resorts as much as the next person, if you're looking for a more rustic experience, book a shack by the beach instead! You'll have access to basic necessities like a clean bedroom and a private washroom with a shower. And forget every 'beach-facing' property you've been to, because if you stay in a shack, you'll be right. At. The. Beach. And who doesn't want to fall asleep to the sound of the crashing waves while being cuddled up to bae?
