Compared to some other parts of India, Goa is extremely safe and perfect for solo excursions. There are a number of solo backpackers in Goa who often meet each other and start new friendships.
There’s something magical about enjoying the sunset all by yourself
Imagine relaxing by the beach with a beer in your hand and gazing at the horizon as the sun sets changing the colors of the sky! You can hardly ever enjoy quiet sunsets when you visit Goa with friends, family or partners. But when you’re alone, you see how magical it really is.

So, for your next trip to Goa, resist the temptation to invite your friends and just take off alone. You won’t regret it.
