The India enjoy thousands of kilometers of coastline and yet rarely considered a destination for lovers of the sea. However, if you want to enjoy the waves and the sand from a family trip to a honeymoon, the beaches of India are an excellent idea .

Goa is the best known beach destination in India . The old Portuguese colony hides beautiful bays among palm groves and is known for its leisurely pace of life. In Goa, one feels a little at home because of the usual presence of small churches or whitewashed hermitages. It is an ideal destination for a family trip to the beaches of India for the ease of travel and the offer of water sports. Vivanta by Taj Fort Aguada is a beautiful property near the capital, Pangim. This hotel of the Taj chain allows you to make cultural visits to the ruins of Vieja Goa. From Fort Aguada, the beaches of North Goa are a few kilometers awayand also the attractive street market of Anjuna. On the other hand, if you are looking to disconnect, your destination is The Leela Palace Goa located at the edge of Cavelossim Beach. The Leela discovers the steepest coast in the south of the state, with beaches that can only be accessed by sea.

The beaches of India have the ideal destination to take care of you in Kerala . The best teachers of Ayurvedic massage are in Kerala. In addition, the state has attractions such as backwaters and tea plantations in Munnar or cities full of culture such as Cochin. For all these reasons, Kerala is a perfect destination for a honeymoon trip to India that includes some of its beautiful beaches. Near Trivandrum you will find Kovalam, two bays of fine sand and coconut trees where you can stay with all kinds of luxuries at Vivanta by Taj Green Cove. The Taj chain melts nature and traditional architecture taking care of every detail so that every moment is a gift.
