Anjuna Beach in Goa is a relatively quieter place for you to enjoy a lazy weekend, compared to the other touristy beaches here. Soak in the sun, play in the water and taste some Goan delicacies served to you. When you're bored with these, hop to the local markets for some shopping.
The Wednesday flea market in Anjuna is also worth exploring. Any time is a perfect time to visit Goa, but you can avail the best hotel offers during the monsoons, which is from June to September.
Head to one of these places this weekend, forget all your stress for a while and breathe, relax and enjoy!
