Agonda Beach in Goa, India
Agoda Beach is located on the west coast of India in the southernmost part of Goa. Thanks to tourism, Goa is India`s most wealthiest state, but Agoda beach has managed to stay tourist free without turning into a kitschy resort.
For a small fee locals will be glad to take you on an elephant ride right there on the beach. They`ll be also very happy to provide you with a glass of wine for only $0.44 and even give you are haircut for $0.60. We are not sure how much does it cost to rent an apartment or room, but we do now that a beach snack is $4 a day. Sometimes riding elephant with a new haircut while drinking wine is all you need. 🙂
You can always change scenery by going for a walk and explore some local temples, do yoga and try some naan (traditionally cooked bread in teardrop shape).
On the downside we hope you don`t mind seeing a lot of soul searching hippies who wouldn’t hesitate to ask you for some hash or cash (probably both).
