  • Although widespread, this beach is crowded. Cafes restaurants, while practical, disfigure it. Not a tree, no vegetation.

  • Best Beach i have ever seen. Clean water, best view, near by resorts and hotels. Calangute is a town in North Goa, famous for its beach. The beach is the largest in North Goa and visited by thousands of domestic and international tourists alike. The peak tourist season is during Christmas and New Year, and during the summer in May. During the monsoon season, from June through September, the sea can be rough and swimming is prohibited. The beach offers water sport activities like parasailing and water skiing, among others.
  • This is one of the oldest beaches situated in North of Goa. When Goa started to develop as a tourist destination it was known for water sports, massages, shacks, music for this beach only. Though now due to overcrowding of street shopping area the approach has become narrow. Still it reminds a hot destination. One can not only relish the delicacies of Goa here but can take party on hoards of activities here.
  • Calangute Beach is one of the cleanest and famous beach of north goa visited by domestic and international tourists.. Accommodation and hotels are plenty around here so no worries.. Complete package of enjoyment.. Must visit!

Where to stay in Goa

One of the more affordable regions for staying in India, Goa offers a good range of sleeping options, from budget to luxurious. Visitors looking for that feeling of home away from home can explore rental apartments, which offer more space than a hotel room and often come with fully equipped kitchens. Look for an apartment in Oxel or Siolim, peaceful villages with gated communities and a range of facilities. Beach houses and private villas offer an alternative for those with deeper pockets, while beach huts/shacks work well for budget-conscious travelers.
