After being successful in charming travellers with its exotic sun-kissed beaches and glitzy nightlife, Goa is now going to surprise you with beautiful eco-friendly villages. The state forest ministry is working on the grounds of developing environment friendly villages to promote the beautiful hinterland areas of Goa to global travellers. Goa forest minister Rajendra Arlekar stated that such villages will help to balance revenue generation, render youth employment, restore environmental balance, de-congest beaches and promote eco-tourism in rural Goa.

What’s in Store?

Goa is one of the most sought after beach destinations in India that attracts millions of domestic and international travellers every year. Establishing eco-villages is just one of the measures to promote the hidden beauty of the hinterland and help tourism achieve greater heights. To promote the concept of hinterland tourism, successive governments in Goa have promised to develop entertainment facilities like backwater cruises, spice farm tours, kayaking, white water rafting, ornithology etc.

Villages in Goa are still unexplored. So, once you will be done with beaches and booze, you can make a move to these hidden locales and get refreshed by their tranquil setting, green surrounding and warm traditional hospitality. It will then be apt to say, Stay in Goa, the real Goan style!
