Fly to Goa to enjoy “world’s best beach”

The Indian state of Goa has cemented its rightful place as a world-class holiday destination after being awarded the coveted title of “world’s best beach” at last week’s ITB Berlin tourism convention. The award, officially named the “Pacific Area Travel Writers Association (PATWA) award for the Best Beach Destination” reaffirms Goa’s status amongst the world’s most sought-after holiday destinations, and rewards the hard work that the Goan local authorities have put in to improve the safety and aesthetics of the area. Recently, tourist police have been installed in the region with a view to cutting down crime against visitors, and new regulations have been brought in regarding beach infrastructure and the region’s famous beachside huts. All of this has worked to enhance the already staggering natural beauty of this region, which has long been a favourite destination for tourists visiting India, drawing around two million visitors every year. Goa’s beaches form a fundamental part of its appeal to international visitors, though the area is also known as a spiritual sanctuary with a rich heritage as a place of worship, where Buddhist monks laid the foundations of the religion in the 3rd century BC. India’s minister for tourism, Dilip Parulekar, commented upon accepting the award that it reaffirmed Goa’s status as a top destination, and hoped that the award would serve as encouragement to more tourists to come and experience the natural beauty of Goa’s beaches for themselves. As tourism in India continues to grow and thrive, Goa is certain to remain one of the most popular destinations in this stunningly beautiful and diverse country. Image sources: 1 2 3
