Goa in one day
Goa is so small you can drive around the whole state in one day. In fact you can drive from the northern end at Patradevi to the southern end of the NH17 at Polem in five hours with your feet mostly flat on the accelerator. But we’re looking at a more leisurely ride here, from sunrise to well past sundown. Starting at Panjim you can drive north up the coastal belt via Calangute, Arpora, Siolim, Chopdem, Ashwem, Arambol, further north to Pernem, come down the NH17 from there via Mapusa to Bicholim, Valpoi, Mollem, southwards towards Sanguem, Quepem, back on the NH17 and onwards to Canacona, from where you can turn northwards towards Palolem and onwards towards Betul, joining the NH17 back at Balli, northwards towards Margao from where you can turn towards Colva and come up the Salcete coastal route to Vasco and back to Panjim. Round Goa in one day. You’ll never forget the drive.
