Back to Destinations Overview





The arrival of  hippies in the sixties was the turning point in the history of Goa's tourism and since then it continues to be India’s premier beach resort, providing exciting holidays to thousands of international and domestic tourists each year.

Charter flights to Goa now means you can visit this land of sunshine within hours of leaving cold and shivering Gatwick & Manchester on direct non-stop flights. Goa infuses the legacies of it's Portuguese ancestors and Indian tradition in such a way  that  makes for a unique blend and an ideal opportunity to experience an east meets west culture. The Gothic Churches, Forts, colonial buildings, temples, villages and Mediterranean hamlets, all reflect the colourful and unhurried lifestyle of Goa.  However, the true Goan spirit is found in its people, their music and the endless stretches of golden sands that house some of the world’s finest beaches.

Shop for amazing bargains, purchase gold jewellery, have a siesta on a lazy afternoon or experience a midnight barbecue on the beach. Goa is the place for music, dancing and sipping a cold Kingfisher beer  to a  twinkling starlight backdrop on a white pearly beach.

Cheap flights to Goa by direct charters from Gatwick & Manchester is the most convenient way to travel. The ten and a half hour non-stop flight means avoiding the hassle of long delays, missing luggage and traffic jams at connecting points.
