About Calangute

Calangute is a famous city in the North Goa region of India. Panaji, one of the biggest cities in the country, is only 15 kilometers away. The city, known as “queen of beaches”, attracts thousands of domestic and foreign tourists every year.

While swimming is possible in the city all year round, the best times to go to the beach is between November and May. It is not allowed to swim during the monsoon season, which lasts from June till the end of September, since the sea would be dangerous. Surrounded by palm and coconut trees Calangute Beach is among the ten most beautiful beaches in the world. The beach in the Arabian Sea is 7 kilometers long and continues till the intersection of Candolim Village in the south and Baga in the north. Baga Beach, which is a more calm and isolated beach compared to Calangute Beach, is at the end of the city and hosts the music festivals organized in the city.

Besides the sea and sun charm, Calangute’s different city life is also worth seeing. The tuk-tuks, worship forms and narrow streets that are often used for transportation in the city are quite suitable for taking pictures. While the St. Alex Church, built in 1595, is one of the most important structures of the city, farms cultivating Cashew, picnic areas and healing hot springs are also among the places you can discover.

Parties and fun cocktails are also organized on the beach, which is very convenient for water sports such as canoeing, sailing, snorkelling, scuba diving, windsurfing, and water skiing. You can also parasail if you wish, or go fishing on the Zuari and Mandovi rivers with river boats.  

In the souvenir stands in Calangute, you can see exotic handicrafts from regions like Tibet, Indonesia, and Kashmir, and you can buy knick-knacks made of sea shells. The fun night life and the Goa Carnival, which has been ongoing since the Portuguese colonial period, are attracting attention.
