Calangute is a town in North Goa, best known for its shoreline, which is the longest in North Goa, and attracts local and global sightseers alike. It is also home to the long, sandy Calangute Beach, dotted with vibrant eateries and bars.
Calangute’s peak season for travellers is in Christmas and New Year, and during the late spring in May. Its famed beach offers many once-in-a-lifetime water sport activities, including parasailing and water skiing. But during the storm season, from June through September, the ocean can be unpleasant and swimming is restricted here.
Toward the south, the strong dividers of Aguada Fort, were first set up in the mid-1600s under the Portuguese. In the more distant north, Baga Beach is another well-known spot for water sports.
