It has already been mentioned that Goa is a well known holiday and wedding destination. However, if there are weddings in the state, is it safe to assume that it would make a good honeymoon destination as well?
Here are some activities that couples can indulge in when on their honeymoons.
Goa is known for its beaches above everything else. Below is a list of a few romantic and secluded beaches to spend some time at as a married couple.

This beautiful beach located in the Vasco area has the perfect blend of solitude and village. The beach is located right next to the Bogmalo beach and has a small village nearby. This gives the visitors their alone time, while not leaving them completely isolated. Couples can spend some time going for a walk on the beach, through the clear water, or just lazing around in the sand.
The butterfly beach is located in the Palolem area, between two hills. Couples visiting the beach can check out a bunch of activities like dolphin watching, kayaking, diving, and spotting dolphins.
This beach is not given enough credit for the clean and clear sand and water that it has. Unlike a majority of the beaches in Goa, this beach is not as populated than its other counterparts allowing people visiting it to spend some time alone.
There are other activities that can be handled in the state as well. Goa is surrounded by ghats on the eastern side of the state and that being said, makes for some beautiful waterfalls.
Although beautiful as ever, the Dudhsagar waterfall does receive a lot of tourist attention since it is mentioned in every tourist guide about Goa. The waterfall is not easily accessible since it is located in the forests of Sonaulim. Trekking on a rainy day is an interesting activity and can be turned into an amazing bonding experience too.
Another interesting waterfall but not as known as the Dudhsagar is located right alongside the Arvalem caves. It does not have a lot of tourists visiting it since it is not that well known, but spending some time there watching the water is definitely spellbinding.
Goa does have a couple of islands that are definitely worth looking at. An interesting fact is that the capital of Goa is an island as well. Access to Panjim is through the Mandovi river or bridge from the North and the Zuari river and bridge from the South of Goa.
Located right on the Ribandar road, getting to the island can be quite the challenge. However, the ferry ride to the island will be one of the most romantic rides ever. The island is quite beautiful and quite secluded with trees, small roads and open fields. The island has some old architecture houses there as well and walking through the long winding streets is very relaxing and comforting.
Another island only connected by ferries since there haven’t been any bridges built yet, Diwar is right alongside Chorao. Getting a ferry from the island of Chorao should not take too long, other routes to the island would go through Old Goa.
Here are a just a few of the many things, and locations to visit on a honeymoon in Goa. There are plenty more and it would depend on the people visiting the state as well.
