Popular as the ‘Queen of Beaches’, Goa’s Calangute Beach ranks in the top ten best bathing beaches in the world. Most commercial beaches in Goa are packed with eating places, shacks, and clubs serving cocktails, beer, and seafood. Calangute Beach is also known for its water sports such as parasailing, water surfing, banana riding, and jet-skiing.
While the days here are filled with beach fun, the nights call for upbeat parties and hair letting go. Calangute is also popular to stay in Goa as it keeps you well connected to the other northern beaches such as Baga, Anjuna, Candolim, Aguada, and many more.

The Basilica Church of Bom Jesus located in Goa is unique in India and is known for its exemplary Baroque architecture. The oldest church in Goa, it contains the remains of Saint Francis Xavier, a special friend of Saint Ignatius of Loyola with whom he founded the Society of Jesus (Jesuits).
A site with rich cultural and religious significance, the Basilica of Bom Jesus has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Fort Aguada is a 17th-century Portuguese fort overlooking the confluence of the Mandovi River and the Arabian Sea.

The highlight of the fort is a four-story lighthouse (the only one of its kind in Asia) and a breathtaking view of the sunset.
Built-in 1612 as protection against the Dutch and the Marathas, Fort Aguada was the most precious and crucial fort for the Portuguese and covered the entire peninsula in the extreme southwest of Bardez.
