Top Places To Visit 8 Spots

Fort Aguada

This is a very well preserved fort which was built in the 17th Century by the Portuguese. The fort was made as the most important building of the Portuguese colonials and they always wanted to save it against the Dutch and the Maratha rulers. It is in the Candolin area on the Sinquerim Beach. The location of the fort on the banks of the Mandovi River makes it look even more beautiful. The fort covers a large area and almost covers the whole tip land of the Bardez Peninsula. At present there is also a holiday resort built here by the tatas and is a beautiful place to stay for a peaceful vacation. It is also close to the Candolim Beach and the shopping and eating areas around. This was at one time the most important port where most of the ferries and boats landed and left from and thus the name Aguada meaning 'water'.

Calangute Beach

Known as the 'Queen of Beaches', this is regarded as the most popular tourist destination of Goa. The beach is located at about 15 kilometres from the capital city of Panjim and is in the northern part of Goa. There are also a number of very good holiday resorts out here and this makes the place even more popular. Besides, the Calangute Beach has to offer to its guests and visitors the golden sands, opportunities for water sports, awesome Goan cuisine and some lovely views too. The beach is steep and is thus not very apt for swimming but it can be done still if you do not go far off.

About Candolim

This is a village in the northern part of Goa and is on the southern side of the very popular Calangute Beach here. This is an extremely popular tourist attraction and witnesses a large number of tourists throughout the year. There are a number of restaurants and shopping options around. This is however a little more expensive for the backpackers but is an ideal location for those who love to eat out and shop. Apart from eating and shopping, the main attraction here is the pristine Candolim Beach. This beach is a little narrow at some parts which is because of continuous erosion. Also on the Sinquerin side you will find options for several water activities such as para sailing, dolphin boating and others. There are also a number of shacks here which sell authentic Goan cuisine which includes seafood mostly. The tiger prawns here are absolutely delicious. There are stalls which sell cheap clothes as well.
