  1. Few points to note while in Goa 1) Entering into the sea in all beaches officially closes by 5 PM. Lifeguards will roam around in Jeeps after 5 PM, warning people to come out of the waters. 2) Finding car parking at beaches is extremely difficult at peak hours. There are official parking lots at the entrance of every beach but it's very difficult to get the slot there. There are some free parking slots provided by traffic police on the streets, please have a look around or ask someone. 3) There are many one way and no entry roads in most of the Goa. Please be cautious and look at the sign boards. 4) Always have the hard copies (xerox) of car documents in hand. 5) For water sports, we have booked online from ; https://atlantiswatersports.com/tours/advance-watersports-package/ 6) There are buses to every beach in Goa from Panjim KTC Bus Stand. You can try, If you have time and don't want struggle with Google Maps. 7) Please avoid visiting "Abyss Marine Fish Aquarium". It's a waste of time and money (entrance fee 100 /- per head). https://www.google.com/maps/place/Abyss+Marine+Fish+Aquarium/@15.3741075,73.9260592,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x915a54e3c8464b31!8m2!3d15.3741075!4d73.9260592 8) We got a waterproof phone cover for taking photos in waters and it managed to save the phone from few dips https://www.amazon.in/dp/B0113WSN16/ref=psdc_1389409031_t1_B076FTM2XD 9) Swiggy and Foodpanda available in Panjim. For all the biryani lovers out there, you can get tasty biryani at Zakis Biryani, Panjim.

  3. Hi Friends, I recently completed round trip from Hyderabad to Goa in my 1 year old Maruti Suzuki Ignis Zeta Petrol AMT. It’s a family trip with 4 people on-board and we took below route as per the suggestions from other members in this forum, Hyderabad --> Zaheerabad -> Humnabad -> Kalaburagi -> Jevargi -> Vijaypura -> Bagalkot -> Belgaum -> Chorla -> Panjim While going, we took the overnight stay at Bagalkot and while returning, we took the overnight stay at Vijaypura. December 20th We have started early by 5 AM from Secunderabad and stopped for breakfast at Kalaburagi and lunch at Vijaypura. Road Condition : The NH65 till Humnabad is very good in condition and Humnabad to Kalaburgai is a state highway with two lane road without divider. This state highway have few construction patches and overall good in shape. We have to be very alert while crossing the villages as people and animals cross the roads without looking at the vehicles coming in and there are many unmarked speed breakers. Breakfast : Hotel Amanthrana https://www.google.com/maps/place/Hotel+Amanthrana/@17.3333727,76.8363592,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x2e959ce4da344063!8m2!3d17.3333727!4d76.8363592 Lunch : Hotel Hallimane https://www.google.com/maps/place/Hotel+Hallimane/@16.8272963,75.7311888,15z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0x5ca3e20a380db870?ved=2ahUKEwjF3Of3yc7fAhWDb30KHYHsCFcQ_BIwDnoECAYQCA The food was great at both Amanthrana and Hallimane. Hallimane offers traditional Karnataka thali served in banana leaf. We have explored Gol Gumbaz and Shivagiri Temple in Vijaypura. Night Stay : Clarks Inn Bagalkot https://www.google.com/maps/place/Clarks+Inn+Bagalkot/@16.1779984,75.7020045,15z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0xbb2e5dde63fe2073?ved=2ahUKEwjeg4CXys7fAhWGe30KHfujCWAQ_BIwCnoECAYQCA December 21st We have started by 6 AM from Bagalkot and reached Belgaum by breakfast time. We had breakfast at Ajantha Cafe, Belgaum and started towards Chorla Ghat. We have reached Panjim KTC Bus Stand by lunch time. Road Condition : Bagalkot to Belgaum road is quite okay with few bad patches. Enroute Belgaum, we have took a shortcut route suggested by Google to avoid some congestion on state highway and landed in some pretty bad village roads. So, please stick to national and state highways in any situation and avoid Google shortcuts. There are few bad patches on Chorla Ghat too which will reduce the speeds. Once you enter Goa border, please be careful with the one ways, road closures and no entry boards. Google routed us in a “No Entry” road just before entering Panjim and Goa traffic police caught us. It’s not a mistake from Google side as these diversions are new and temporary due to the season Breakfast : Ajantha Cafe, Belgaum https://www.google.com/maps/place/Ajanta+Cafe/@15.8594073,74.5118962,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0xa629e35caae7f89c!8m2!3d15.8594073!4d74.5118962 December 26th We have started by 7:30 AM from Panjim and stopped at Vijaypura for overnight stay. We stopped for breakfast at Delta Echohuts food court in Chorla ghat and lunch at Athithi Family Restaurant, below Hotel Annapurneshwari, Bagalkot. Breakfast : Delta Echohuts, Chorla Ghat https://www.google.com/maps/place/Delta+Ecohuts/@15.682283,74.18825,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0xf9a4ac3fe5596af3!8m2!3d15.682283!4d74.18825 Lunch : Athithi Family Restaurant, Bagalkot Couldn't find the exact location. It's on Belgaum to Bagalkot highway, 50 kms before Bagalkot. Night Stay : KSTDC Hotel Mayura Adilshahi, Vijaypur https://www.google.com/maps/place/Hotel+Mayura+Adilshahi,+Vijayapur/@16.8291994,75.7206112,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x572c1c87ed64f6b1!8m2!3d16.8291994!4d75.7206112 Dinner : Bangalore Restaurant, Vijaypur https://www.google.com/maps/place/Bangalore+Restaurant/@16.8286258,75.7171853,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x9187bc7e7c620a7c!8m2!3d16.8286258!4d75.7171853 The food was good at Delta Echohuts, but most of the items will get over by 9:30 AM. So, please be early to this place, If you are planning for a breakfast stop here. The food at Athithi Family Restaurant is good and cheap with both veg and non-veg options. The food at Bangalore Restaurant in Vijaypura is very tasty with many Karnataka specific varieties. December 27th We have started by 8 AM after having breakfast at Bangalore Restaurant and reached Grand Pariwar Dhaba, Zaheerabad by lunchtime. Lunch : Grand Pariwar Dhaba,Zaheerabad https://www.google.com/maps/place/Grand+Pariwar+Dhaba/@17.7007324,77.5229651,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0xee271ff7807d6af!8m2!3d17.7007324!4d77.5229651 Please let me know, If anyone have questions.
