This beach is less crowded. There are not many shacks and hawkers. There are no water sports. If you are looking for a calm and tranquil atmosphere, this beach is one of the best in north Goa.
This beach is best for people travelling solo or looking for a calm and peaceful environment.
Parking is free. Beach-beds are available for Rs.200. The shacks, as usual, are over-priced.
Of all the Beaches in North Goa, my top two picks are Ashwem and Morjim Beaches.

A beautiful historic place with many statues and paintings. A world Heritage site where every visitor should visit.Only feedback is that the place should be restored and maintained well. Visitors should abide by rules, mainly of clothing and photography

Newly restored Portuguese Fort
s really a nice place to have you in and out of Goa. It is somewhat out of traffic and inside Goa. The way or the road towards this place is cool full of trees. Not much of people you can see on the road, day time the road is good but in the night you have to take care of safety.

Take the bus from Kadampa bus station and follow the river to Old Goa. The mass of tourist stalls can't diminish the impact of these old cathedrals and churches. Testimony to the power of faith.

One of the historical churches built by Portugese. It is a functional Church and do maintain silence and do not disturb the people who are here for their prayers. And do dress modestly. Bom Jesus means Infant Jesus.
The relics of St.Francis is kept at this Church.
There is also an art gallery in the first floor ( a nominal fee of Rs.5 is charged)
The SE Cathedral, Church of St. Francis of Assissi, Church of Catherine, Archeological Museum and the Basilica of BOM Jesus are all near by and better to park near the SE Cathedral ( which has ample parking) and walk around.

St Cajetan is another 'minor' church of Goa Velha, slightly off the main tourist area and worth the (really little) effort.
Beautiful imposing architecture with a big beautiful dome, a massive sculpted altarpiece and a well tended front garden the church was just besides the Shah and then Viceroy Palace (long gone).
As in many Goan churches there are plenty of bizarre rules for photo taking.
It is surprising the church is not more popular with pilgrims as St Cajetan is the patron of the unemployed and the document controllers - which include a large part of the population.

A must visit place in Goa. Beautiful Garden and incredibly beautiful Church with a great history. Visit in morning as it becomes really hot outside. Do not miss the dress code for this place. No Sleeveless, hats/ cap allowed. The board outside state no shorts allowed for men but with the increase in tourists they allow it. Also dont take selfies of pictures of people in thechurch, only the pictures of the Church are allowed. There are guards arround who will make you delete the selfie or picture of people.

The heritage sketch walk was an experience of soaking in the place and documenting visual clues that I liked as I moved as a group through the byelanes. The narrator was very informative too.

This Cathedral comes in the same complex which houses the St.Francis Cathedral, the archaeological museum, Basilica of Bom Jesus etc.
The church is really magnanimous. The art work inside the church is really great. There are several mini-altars inside the church catering to various saints.
Entrance to this Cathedral is allowed only after strict dress-code check both for men and women. The following dress-wears are strictly not allowed
- Sleeve-less tops
However, they are selling shawls for Rs.100. You can buy them and cover your exposed arms and legs. Well, you see, there's a marketing angle too.. On a larger picture, you can attribute this dress-code check, to general Indian practices followed by any religious organization (though I've seen several women in sleeveless tops and mini-skirts attending mass in churches in Bangalore).
