Experience Goa the right way with The Local Beat
When one thinks of a holiday in Goa, its warm and sandy beaches, happening nightlife and delicious food are what spring to mind immediately. While all this is a part of the local scene, it’s only a part of the Goan experience. Now, what if you could have a real local experience when you visit our sunshine state? The Local Beat is the answer to this question.
Seeing Goa through the eyes of locals
Initially started as a means of showcasing our beautiful state, The Local Beat is your very own live tour guide to all things Goa. Owned and operated by two sons of the soil, you’ll get to experience Goa from a local viewpoint. The Local Beat runs excursions, better called “Village Loaf” to various parts of Goa for anyone wanting to learn about what makes the state the attraction that it is.
These excursions take you into the interiors of Goa where you will get to visit some of the state’s most beautiful villages which are not a part of the normal touristic routine. In doing so, you’ll also get to see picnic spots, lakes, ponds, ‘zorrs’ (natural springs), bunds, canals, mangroves, islands, and even a few relatively unknown heritage sites. You even get to visit an old Goan home and perhaps indulge in a local meal or teatime snack as well. The best part about these excursions is that there is always a delightful surprise element to these ‘passois’ or walks which aren’t disclosed until the last minute.
So if you too want have a proper Goan experience, get in touch with The Local Beat on their Facebook page for more details about the different packages for these excursions into Goa’s hinterland. And when you decide to stay at Seashells Suites and Villas Candolim with all the wonderful amenities they have to offer, don’t worry, the good folks from The Local Beat will pick you up and drop you off before and after the excursion.
