Recommended Drinks

What would be celebrations in Goa without drinks with buds. Our Recommendation? Avoid hard liquor (including Urrak and Feni). Light drinks like Beer and Breezer’s are highly recommended. Why? Running around shoving colours onto people when under the influence can get messy pretty quick. Keep it safe and clean.

Unfortunately, Bhang is illegal in Goa for those of you who’d like an authentic Holi experience. Happy Holi 2019!
