This is a very small state. It has many old churches and the local people, some of them, know English. This was the first place where the Portuguese first landed in India. There are many beaches we can hire cars here. The rate per kilometer varies from car to car. There is taxi service. It is a very peaceful place with golden beaches. The beaches are well maintained. The best place here for staying is the RCI resort Club Mahindra Varca Beach.
