Cabo de Rama Beach, Goa

The blue-green waters of the Arabian Sea, steep rocky cliffs leading down to the beach, palm lined coast, and beautiful surroundings make it a very romantic backdrop for weddings. According to local folklore, Lord Rama and Sita took refuge here during their exile, hence the name.
Havelock Island, Andaman
