Sun, sea, beach and fun (with plenty of beer), that is Goa for most holidaymakers.

They are still there in the south of Goa. Traditional fishing boats pulled up on the beach; fishermen repairing their nets; and big jars on the fire for brewing country liquor, probably feni, Goa’s national drink. Indeed, one of the nice and attractive features of Goa is its liberal alcohol policy. Another happy relic of the catholic Portugese influence on Goan culture?
