Things to do in Goa in February
The Dudhsagar Waterfall
The Dudhsagar Waterfall is a must-visit during your holiday in Goa. Situated on the Mandovi River, this waterfall features four tiers and is 600m long from top to bottom, with an average width of 30m, making it one of the tallest waterfalls in India. The name "Dudhsagar" literally means "sea of milk" which is exactly what the waterfall looks like when it pours across the Deccan plateau where it then splits into three streams and pours into a deep green pool. Whilst the waterfall is most impressive during the monsoon season (June to September) it's still a fantastic thing to see in February.
Reis Magos Fort
History buffs on holiday in Goa won't want to miss the chance to visit the Reis Magos Fort. This fort is the oldest in Goa and has been restored to serve as a heritage and cultural centre. Previous uses of the Reis Magos Fort included fortress, prison and hospital before it was abandoned in 1993, but the fort has since been restored back to its original glory, with the goal of showing just what important monuments can do for a community. In addition to the genuine fortifications, the Reis Magos Fort also features two art galleries and gift shop where you can buy fort-themed souvenirs.
