Tourists have started heading towards Goan sea-shores in large numbers in an attempt to beat the heat and the hospitality sector hopes to do roaring business as summer vacations approach.

The tiny state, a popular destination for holidaymakers especially foreigners, attracted 23 lakh tourists last year, including 20 lakhs within the country.

“April-May period is a peak season for domestic tourists. People prefer Goa in the summer vacations,” Sanjith Rodrigues, managing director, Goa Tourism Development Corporation (GTDC) told a news agency.

Interestingly, government employees taking LTA benefits or senior citizens adding up spice to their second innings, have been a new profile of tourists arriving in Goa.

“We have been coming here for last three years. Every year is a new experience for us and we will keep coming for next few years,” stated Gurudas Singh Panjwani, president, Guru Nanak Senior Citizens Circle, Ulhasnagar, Mumbai.

Singh, along with his `senior citizen circle’, was traced at Calangute beach in North Goa squatered on sandy shore enjoying their vacation.

“Beaches are good…But government should provide better facilities here. Garbage is littered every where. Authorities should keep these beaches cleaner by providing dustbins,” said Satram Rohra, who has accompanied Singh on the tour.

While recently released movies like `Honeymoon Travels’ have helped to market the state further, couples too are inevitably found taking a dip in salty sea waters.

    Honeymoon Heaven

    So many couples are finding the cost of their wedding so extortionate that they are having to make cutbacks in vital areas and it’s usually the honeymoon that suffers.
