Attractions near the Lemon Tree Amarante Beach Resort
Discovering Goa’s European past
Goa is India’s smallest state, sitting quietly on the edge of the Arabian Sea, and while India’s connections with Britain are widely known, few realise that Goa was once in the hands of the Portuguese. These seafaring conquerors left their mark throughout Goa during their 450-year rule, leaving their legacy behind in the architecture.
Tours of the historical Portuguese landmarks are a great way to get to know the city. You can visit the Basilica of Bom Jesus, a World Heritage-listed site famous for having precious stones embedded in the marble floor. The Basilica also houses the remains of missionary St Francis Xavier. You may also want to explore the colourful streets of Panaji’s Latin Quarter and enjoy a traditional Goan curry for lunch.
Take a croc cruise
A network of canals winds through the Goan countryside, allowing you to see some of Goa’s native species in their natural habitats. You can cruise along the mangrove-lined Cambarjua Canal with a local guide experienced in bird and crocodile spotting.
This stretch of water is the only place in Goa where you can see wild crocodiles on the muddy riverbanks. These freshwater species have adapted to the salty waters of the Canal. It’s thought they were forced to come here in search of food and had to adapt or die. While the crocodiles are used to people, they’re still wild animals, so it's best to keep your fingers and toes inside the confines of the boat.
