Hunting for an ideal experience of sunbath and occasional dive, then join Candolim Beach which abodes Goa’s eminent and famous resort and holiday village.
The most beckoning view from the beach is River Princess, a bulk carrier that sail around 100 metres offshore.
The sight of Aguada Fort built by Portuguese during 1912 to defend the Dutch and the Maratha invaders recalls the history of Goa.
Candolim is a well liked evening spot with good restaurants and night clubs. Walk around the attractions nearby enjoying the Sugar Shack.
The presence of Reis Magos Fort, Veram Lighthouse and the INS Mandovi Jetty of the Indian Navy makes Kegdole beach a classic spot. The beach located in the rim of Mandovi River and across the Panaji banks offers a fine view of the Mandovi Bridge and the Mandovi River. Though the days of lighthouse has bygone, it is now popular as a fishing spot. The rocks in the wedges of the shore are an amazing view.
The domicile of Franciscan Monastery, the residence of Governor of Goa and now known as the Raj Bhavan; yes the Cabo Palace adjacent to Fort Aguada built in 1540 AD is still on the go.
With the charisma of Indian Ocean, the Bay of River Mandovi, Fort Aguada and Mormugao Port, the Cabo Palace captivates the most panoramic view. The main attractions include the exquisiteness, loneliness, distinctiveness and well-planned features of the Cabo.
It has an anthology of Bohemian chandeliers, Chinese porcelain, silver and furniture. The most noteworthy among them are the exotic pieces of antique Chinese porcelain seemingly contrived in Canton.
It’s a quiet & quite frequented beach for picnics and to unwind as it is placed among the richness of palm trees.
The beach shacks here organizes water sports, boating and the Dolphin spotting trip is worth mentioning.
