How Many Days are Enough for a Goa Trip Depending on the traveler, Goa is a good place to either spend a week or just a day or two. The area is not that large, so exploring the state in just one day is possible if you plan well. Goa is pretty much all about beaches. If you’re not sticking around for much more than a day, an hour or two should be spent in the beach town of Vagator, in spite of the small selection of restaurants. It’s worth tasting the fresh seafood in the ‘fish market’ in Morjim in the northwest.
