Introducing Fort Aguada & Candolim
The beaches of Candolim and Sinquerim (below Fort Aguada) are popular with charter and upmarket tourists. The pace is a little less frenetic than at Calangute and Baga up the coast. Independent travellers are rare here, most of the hotels being favoured by package-tour operations. The beach at Fort Aguada is notable for its rocky and attractive headland, while Candolim has the rusting hulk of a grounded tanker, the River Princess – it’s not a very pretty princess. Some of the best-value beach accommodation in Goa lines the quiet back lanes of both villages.
The post office and banks are located on Fort Aguada Rd, and internet access is available at Online World (per hr Rs 30; 9am-11pm).
