With nothing extraordinary in its name or appeal on the surface level, this definitely counts for a traditional concealed gem.
Running since decades, the bakery is run by an old Goan man with sweet baked, authentic delicacies that don’t last beyond afternoon on any given day. Be sure to spare time in the morning.

An exotic French shack in Goa on another gorgeous beach, La Plage can easily be termed as the winner of gourmet French cuisine and affluent dining in town. A must try!

Another class-apart restaurant located within the Goa airport vicinity is known for its exquisite Malabari food and great ambience.
Its USP is its ‘Goa in a Glass’ cocktails, made exclusively from blending Goan home-manufactured liquor brands.
Ladies can also look forward to their Wednesday nights to get 1 free signature cocktail for every inch of their heels.
#3 Jamboree Creek
While there is no dearth of good high-end as well as budget hotels and guest houses in Goa, this cute jungle hut with a swimming pool accessible at affordable prices can make for a great pick.
Given its almost hidden identity, privacy from the crowd is a given. It’s listed on Airbnb for easy booking.
#2 Harvalem Falls
Set in lush green jungles in Goa, Harvalem Falls makes for a stunning view with its milk-like white gushing water streams.
Located close to Arvalem Cave in Panjim, one can also visit the Shiva temple nearby.
