Aguada Fort was close to our hotel and the beautiful drive was just the icing on the cake. I had faint memories of visiting Aguada back in 2012. However, I couldn't remember exactly what made this fort a tourist attraction. Like Chapora, Aguada is more of ruins of a fort than a standing fort. It doesn't offer much except for panoramic views of the Arabian Sea. It can also get overcrowded. I personally liked the views at Chapora better than Aguada and the fewer crowds just make it a better place to spend some time.
1. Fort AguadaWe started our day with fort Aguada which is one of the most popular tourist destinations of Goa. It receives a lot of tourist traffic all around the year. Reasons are that it’s excellent for sightseeing and also that it stands as a testimony to the Portuguese empire.
In the evening, plan to visit Aguada Fort which is approximately a 30mins drive from Baga beach and have the first taste of authentic sea food at this restaurant to your heart’s content.
