The beaches of Goa are among the most famous in Asia, but there is natural beauty to be found across the state. From water sports and national parks to small villages and spice plantations, here are our choices for the best day trip destinations from Goa.

Mollem National Park — 15 miles (25 km) from Goa
A wildlife sanctuary and national park just outside of the capital city of Panaji (Panjim), Mollem is popular destination from Goa. Visitors can see a variety of native birds, butterflies, snakes, and possibly even the illusive tiger on safari in the park. Sightseeing tours of Mollem National Park often include a meal of authentic Goan cuisine and stop at Dudhsagar Falls.

Dudhsagar Falls — 18 miles (29 km) from Goa
Located on the border of Karnataka and North Goa in Mollem National Park, the 1,000-foot (310-meter) Dudhsagar Falls is one of India’s taller waterfalls and certainly among its most scenic. The pool at the base of the waterfall is great for swimming. It takes a little more than an hour to reach the falls from Goa by road, and a full-day tour may include lunch in a local village or a visit to a spice plantation. 

Nerul River — 35 miles (57 km) from Goa
Many visitors to Goa head to the Nerul River to kayak through the backwaters, mangrove forests, and quaint riverside villages. A variety of wildlife can be spotted in the serene surroundings; it’s a peaceful immersion in nature away from Goa’s resorts and luxury hotels. Tours include a tour guide and equipment.
