LONDON, October 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
If you've ever had the urge to spread your wings and sample the delights of India's Goa, then there's never been a better time to book, with the range of affordable holiday deals available from Monarch Airlines.
With holiday deals from Monarch allowing you to escape to destinations you may not previously have considered, Goa provides a great opportunity to experience a truly unique culture and take in some of the sights and sounds of one of India's most picturesque regions.
No escape from Britain's cool climate would be complete without a trip to the beach, and Polem Beach is one of the finest in the world. Nestled in a beautiful bay in Goa's southernmost tip, this is an ideal location for an impromptu picnic, with soft, sandy beaches looking out over a horizon of rocky islands. Fresh fish and seafood abounds in the many local restaurants surrounding the beach, giving you authentic Indian Ocean morsels straight from the source.
Further sandy delights can be found just a short distance away at Ashwem Beach, home to a whole range of quaint beach huts and restaurants just waiting to serve up tasty culinary treats. This is a great place to unwind and watch the world go by, with its sands rarely disturbed by large numbers of tourists.
Whilst sun-worshippers are distracted by the beach, culture vultures can head over to the nearby Cabo da Rama Fort, a beautifully preserved former prison, now surrounded by swathes of coconut trees and delightful walkways. If getting back to nature is more your thing, however, then the Bhagwan Mahavir Wildlife Sanctuary is a great spot to see local wildlife in its natural habitat in the largest protected area in Goa.
One final unmissable sight lies a short drive away in Old Goa, which is home to the world famous Basilica of Bom Jesus, a 16th-century cathedral that made its name for its simple design and delicately gilded altars, providing Goa's vast Christian population and visiting tourists with the chance to reflect in a stunning location.
Monarch Airlines is excited to offer great winter holiday deals on trips to Goa, with savings of up to £200 per person available now. Holidays start from just £477 per person including taxes, with a number of different options to choose from.
