South Goa is like north Goa was decades ago, with relatively pristine beaches and minimal development. If you want to escape the ever-growing crowd in north Goa and have a relatively laid back vacation, you'll love it there. The place is revered for its spectacular beaches, scenic beauty, sumptuous food and cosmopolitan culture. The history of this place dates back to the 3rd Century BC, when it was ruled by the Mauryas. Vasco da Gama and Margao are the two most popular cities in the district. Tourists can indulge in numerous activities here; be it sightseeing or adventure sports. The various monuments and churches dotted around the area are a depiction of the kingdoms and colonies that have ruled here.
