Located in Bardez, his fort rises above the Chapora River. This was a red laterite fort built by the Portuguese in place of an earlier Muslim structure in the 1th Century. It was then captured and again lost by a number of Hindu rulers before the Portuguese finally abandoned it in the year 1892. The main enemies of this fort were the Bahmani Sultans who were successful in capturing it and again later it was captured by the Marathas in the beginning of the 18th Cdentury. It was recaptured by the Portuguese to be taken back again by the Marathas. This battle went on for a long time after which the fort was absolutely deserted. At present, what we can see here are simply ruins of the fort and the heads of two tunnels. Regular buses from Anjuna and Mapusa can bring and take you back from here.
A small beach in North- Goa, this is a flat beach and perfect for swimming. It is not as popular or crowded compared to many other beaches of the state and especially northern Goa, but is still a favourite of many tourists. There are also water activity options available here but these are not that good compared to the ones at the Sinquerim Beach in the same region. This is often a beach which misses the eye when you are busy visiting the busier beaches of Baga, Calangute and such others.
Mainly known for the historical Chapora Fort, this is a popular beach which is about 10 kilometres from Mapusa. The other reason for the popularity of this beach is the fact that this is well accessible from other popular beaches such as Anjuna and Candolim too. There are opportunities for swimming, shopping and eating too but it is better not to spend the night here. This is because this beach area is a marked one for the people who are involved in drugs and there are other people who are involved in illegal activities during the night time as well.
