The paradise of South Asia, Goa is one of the most frequented states by tourists. Whether it is to devour delicious seafood or saunter by the beach, the coast offers a myriad of exciting activities to guests. If you are planning a 3 day Goa itinerary where you would love to leave behind your daily life and embrace the beachy waves, then visit some of the most well-known landmarks in Goa.

Cansaulim Beach


Goa is known for its beaches, so it only makes sense that a beach has top billing when trying to plan a trip to Goa for 3 days. Located 2 km away from our hotel, Cansaulim Beach is one of the more secluded beaches in the state. For guests who are fond of relaxing in solitude, this is the perfect place for you. It is also a great spot for swimming and long meandering walks. Sunsets are particularly fantastic here, so don't forget your cameras.

Carpe Diem

If you are an artist making a Goa trip itinerary for 3 days, Carpe Diem should be the first place on your list. It is located just 4 km away from our hotel and is the perfect place to engage with fellow artists and creative geniuses. An 18th-century repurposed house made into a haven for art and artists. It is primarily an art gallery but also houses a learning centre for students of art, a ceramic studio, a mini amphitheatre and a cafe.

Rita's Gourmet Goa


When planning an itinerary for Goa, 3 days is not enough time to see everything this beautiful little state has to offer. However, if that is all the time you can spare, we suggest spending some of it at Rita's Gourmet Goa. Learn how to cook authentic Goan dishes and take back memories and skills that will never fail to impress.

Naval Aviation Museum


For enthusiasts of history who are planning a Goa tour itinerary for 3 days, Naval Aviation Museum in Vasco da Gama is an interesting stop. It is the only one to exist in Asia that displays the gradual evolution of the Indian Navy over the years. It has an indoor gallery and an outdoor exhibition that feature models of aircraft carriers, aircraft engines, uniforms of naval officers and many other fascinating facets of the navy that will pique your interest.

St Thomas Church

A trip to Goa is incomplete without visiting at least one of the many impressive churches that are peppered across the state. The closest one to our hotel is St. Thomas, a distance of 2 km away. Originally built by the Jesuits in the 16th century, this testament to the ingenuity of Portuguese architecture is home to the annual feast of St. Thomas held every December.

We highly recommend renting a two-wheeler so you can explore other landmarks. Some of them include the iconic Basilica of Bom Jesus, the imposing Aguada Fort, the innumerable watersport options, the (literally translated to) milky-white Dudhsagar Falls, among many others. Stay at Heritage Village Resorts and Spa in Goa and visit these sites.
