Beach life in Goa - color, light, and sound.

This photos shows a typical beach day in the most popular and crowded beach of Goa i.e. Baga Beach. I am not a fan of party beaches but that night was exceptionally beautiful and cool and I decided to spend a few hours by myself on the beach. As the night arrived, music blared from all sides. The shacks lit up and people began to dance. Even during the pandemic, Baga beach saw heavy footfall and it was nice to see life jumping around at this beach. That's when I clicked this photo to capture the essence of Goa's beach life with neon colors, people, and sound and shacks.
