Less explored beaches of Goa:

1. Cola Beach

Even local people, who don’t live nearby, have not heard of this beach before. To reach this hidden treasure travel south to Canacona and look for signs that leads you to an unsullied beach located at the backdrop of coconut groves and blue skies. It is almost five minutes away from Agonda beach and has a unique blue lagoon surrounded by beach huts, where you can stay overnight.

2. Butterfly Beach

This exquisite gem not only has a pretty name but also has an unexplored stretch of sand because of its isolation. It is situated on Butterfly Island and is a great place for total privacy. The only way to go to Butterfly Islands’ beautiful beach is by boat from Agonda or Palolem beach.

3. Kakolem Beach

Looking for an adventure? Try getting to this lesser known beach, also called Tiger beach. It is situated in a bay, it’s breathtaking beauty makes up for almost getting lost on the way there. The sands are clean and deserted. The only way by land is to take the NH66 highway towards Cola village. Turn north-east and drive on a broken old road that leads you to a small platform. Taking the narrow steep winding stone stairs leads down to the beach. You can also rent a boat to reach the beach and come back.

4. Hollant Beach

This serene beach has a lovely bay with a long stretch of shallow water running into the sea which is perfect for non-swimmers and waders. The beach is rocky however the picturesque bay makes up for it. You will even see fishermen’s boats lining the narrow, curving shore to create a quaint picture.

5. Betul Beach

The wide expanse of this compact sandy beach can be found about 18kms from Margao. The scenery reminds you of traditional coastal fishing villages. It also has a small lagoon and a 17th century fort nearby. Reach Mobor beach by land and then take the Cavelossim-Assolna ferry across the River Sal to visit the beach.

6. Velsao Beach

Just towards the north of the popular Majorda and Colva beaches in the southern part of Goa, is this stunning beach with soft, silvery sand and nothing but a lifeguard and some birds to keep you company. It as also a less crowded beach to find some solace.

7. Siridao Beach

Around 12kms south of Panjim near the Zuari river estuary, this beach is situated with scattered blocks of rock in between smooth strips of sand giving the beachscape an unusually rugged appearance. The special quality about this beach, is the fragments of oyster shells that wash up on the shore and brighten up the beach. The nearest landmark is The Chapel of Jesus of Nazareth. You can also explore a few caves nearby.

It depends on your taste and type of places you like to visit. Few suggestions:
  • Looking for party visit Anjuna.
  • Crowded place visit Calangute.
  • Crystal clear blue water and a golden sand (filmy types) visit Palolem.
  • Water sports and dolphin sightseeing visit Benaulim.

Controlling Servo Motor with BLYNK app over WiFi

Hello Shippers, hope you are having a great time! Today, we are gonna build a simple project of controlling servo motor with BLYNK app over Wifi.
Overview: The slider on the blynk app will send a value to the NodeMCU/ESP8266 and this value will be written on PIN 8 and the servo rotates that much degrees. That's the way we are controlling servo motor. Ahaa!

Things we need:Hardware:Servo SG90NodeMCUMicroUSB cableJumper WiresSoftware:Arduino IDEBLYNK appCircuit:
Connections:D8 pin of NodeMCU connects to Command pin of Servo Motor.3V3 PIN of NodeMCU connects to Power PIN of Servo motor (usually RED one).GND PIN of NodeMCU connects to GND of servo motor (usually BLACK one). Simple connections, huh!
BLYNK app Setup on phone:Create a New Project in BLYNK app.Write Project Name and Select ESP8266 or NodeMCU from dropdown.An AUTH token will be sent to your registered email, note this down.Tap on the screen and add a SLIDER widget on the screen.Tap on the Widget, select Digital PIN 8 and Start…

Setup Mosquitto MQTT broker in Windows

MQTT (Message Queueing Telemetry Transport) is a Client Server messaging transport protocol. It provides a lightweight method of carrying messages using a publish/subscribe model. The pub/sub model being lighweight makes it suitable for IOT messaging with low power devices, sensors, phones or microcontrollers. How MQTT works? MQTT follows publish/subscribe model which is alternative to server-client model where client communicates directly with server. The pub/sub model defines the client which send a message(publisher) to another client which received that message(subscriber). The subscriber and publisher are unaware of the presence of each other. The main part, which we call the Broker, which our both publisher and subscriber are aware of, filters all the coming messages and distributes them respectively.

Now we know what is MQTT and how it works. Let's dive in to set this up on Windows 7/8/10.
Mosquitto: This is an open source message broker used for handling lightweight data t…

Time scheduled electric switch controlled with Blynk app

Most of the times when we go out of home for some days, we think of having some device that could switch ON/OFF (let's say) Refrigerator (or any other important appliance)for some hours during the day. Today, we are going to make such time scheduled electric switch which switches ON/OFF at times which we set the in our Blynk app. Woah!

Let's begin!
Things we need:
Hardware:5V relayNodeMCUJumper wiresBreadboard3V3 and 5V power sourceElectrical WiresSoftware:Arduino IDEBLYNK app It's circuit is same as we have created for our Smart Switch. So, if you already have that circuit set up, go ahead with Blynk app set up and Start playing.
Connections:D5 pin of NodeMCU connects to IN1 pin of 5V relay.3V3 of NodeMCU connects to 3V3 powers source and GND to GND.Vcc of relay connects to 5V source and GND to GND.Live wire is connected directly to appliance.Neutral wire from source comes to relay NC pin and another wire goes out from COM pin which is connected to the appliance.Let…
