Pamper yourself with a spa day
Whether you’re with your partner, your best friends or your family, there’s no better way to spread the love than with a super relaxing spa day. Goa has a range of spas and luxury salons offering a variety of services and excellent discount packages. From Ayurvedic massages to skin rejuvenation therapies, to reflexology and more, Goa has a lot to offer in terms of wellness and spa options to make your Valentine’s Day special. Stay at Metronome’s Casa Fazenda and check out the amazing Devaaya Spa on Divar Island, North Goa.
Watch the sunset
Life’s a beach! Especially when you’re in Goa. Take your pick from a number of amazingly beautiful beaches in North and South Goa, cuddle up with a bottle of wine and watch the sunset together. If you’re looking for beaches with shopping, nightlife, and great food, then Baga, Anjuna, Calangute, and Morjim are definitely where you should be headed. If you just want to enjoy the company of your loved one and drink in the serene beauty of the sunset, then lesser-known beaches like Agonda, Cabo de Rama, Cola, and Palolem are the right place for you.

With night clubs like Sinq, Owl, Cohibas, Titos, Cavalas and Hammerz, pubs like Soro, DTR, Cafe Mojos, all you need to do is put on your dancing shoes, grab your partner and get ready for the night of your life.
Indulge in a romantic meal
With a wealth of restaurants, eateries, and cafes, what better way to celebrate the day than to enjoy a scrumptious meal together? Enjoy a candlelit dinner on the beach at any of the numerous beach shacks in Calangute, Baga, and Candolim or plan a more upscale dinner at The Harbour Grill, Tataki, Wan Hao or Black Sheep Bistro in Panaji.
Cruise down the Mandovi River
