Shore of the Mandovi river, Sinquerim
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'.

Opposite Taj Holiday Village, Sinquerim Candolim, Candolim, Bardez 403515
The smaller beach situated where the Candolim Beach ends by taking a turn is known as the Sinquerium Beach. This is also the location of the famous Aguada Fort and also the TAJ Vivanta Hotel. The location on the banks of the River Mandovi makes it even more scenic. People who are staying at this hotel find this an all- time favourite and the crowd here mostly include the guests of the TAJ Hotel.

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.
