Valentine’s day is right around the corner and it calls for an exotic celebration of love. What better way to do it than having a romantic time in Goa which is also called as the Honeymoon Capital of India. 😉
Well Well! We know what you’re thinking. This year, the Valentine’s falls on a weekday. But that shouldn’t stop you from taking some time off your schedule and show some appreciation for the people you love or adore.
Whether you decide to take a day’s break from the city life or plan to spend the evening with a special someone, here are some of the most romantic things that you can do on Valentine’s Day in Goa.
10) Candle Light Dinner
Pair a bottle of Champagne with delectable food to liven up the mood on a day that’s dedicated for love. A candle light dinner by the pool or a beach is one of the most sought after and a fool-proof option to have a romantic time in Goa.
9) Star Gazing by the Beach
People normally visit the beaches of Goa anywhere between the dawn and dusk of a day. But have you ever tried taking a stroll hand-in-hand with your significant other under the starlit skies and along the most serene shores of Goa? No? 😯 Then this should definitely go into your to-do list in Goa, Valentine’s Day or not!
8) Dance the night away
If you’ve got a night of endless music, drinks, and partying on your mind, there’s no better place to be than in Goa. So take off your heels and have a gala time on the dance floor with your partner at some of the best nightclubs in Goa, coz maybe the DJ will get you falling in love again. 😉
7) Float around in a hot air balloon
The Hot Air Balloon rides organised by Goa Tourism at Assolda Grounds in Chandor offer you beautiful panoramic aerial views of the lush countryside of Goa. It is a relaxing experience to enjoy the amazing sunrises and sunsets with your partner. Book your ride here
6) Have a secluded time at the Architectural ruins
From the long-forgotten ruins of Brahmapuri in Old Goa to the ancient city of Chandrapur (now called as Chandor), you can experience the hidden beauty of these discreet locations in Goa. A visit to the little-known yet scenic forts like the Nanuz and Corjuem fort will also be something worth to get some peaceful time together away from the city life.
5) Stay in a Beach Hut
Ditch the luxury hotels this time and pick one of the strategically-located shacks right on the beach for a Valentine Getaway. The beach huts at Morjim in the North and Palolem in the South are some of the best places to stay that promise privacy and stunning sights of the unending seas.

4) Expedite the Wildlife in Goa
If you are a couple who love animals and enjoy sightseeing, then its the perfect time to go for a birding expedition at Dr. Salim Ali Sanctuary at Chorao. Various rare species of birds migrate to this habitat for breeding during February. Apart from this, you can also explore the Butterfly Conservatory Ponda and Mollem National Park to breathe in the beautiful flora and fauna of Goa.
3) Rent a Boat
Whether its staying in a boathouse or just hiring a private cruise for a memorable time, Goa has a plethora of options for you. Right from kayaks and jetskis to luxury yacht charter, you can rent your own from Champions Yacht Club or Boat Goa
2) Get inked together
We ain’t telling you that you should get each other’s name inked as a permanent mark of love. If you both are up for it then try experiencing the chills of getting a tattoo of your preference, at the same time. Head over to the bustling beaches of North Goa and you shall find a number of tattoo workshops to help you with it. Our recommends would be Ink Fidel at Assagao and Sandy’s at Calangute.

A small note to all lovelorn revelers from Lokaso: Love is not meant to be given and received just on Valentine’s Day. Instead, show the same affection to your partner on rest of the 364 days as well.
