Situated just nine miles north of the Goan capital, Panaji, lies Goa's busiest beach resort. Holidays to Calangute offer four miles of beautiful white sand fringed by palm trees and lapped by the Arabian Sea. A popular hippy haunt in the 60s and 70s, Calangute has secured its place as a year-round holiday destination. The beach is a haven for sun worshippers, swimmers and water sports-enthusiasts. However the beach is not just for tourists, cows are often seen roaming the shores too!
The village of Calangute is the most popular holiday resort in Goa. Situated in North Goa, it has everything you need to enjoy on your holiday, a fantastic wide golden sandy beach, a great choice of shops and market stalls and plenty of night time spots for a nice meal or few drinks. Calangute translates as the 'land of fisherman', and as one would expect, fresh seafood is available here in abundance. There is a small selection of shops along the beach. The Saturday market next to the post office sells fish, textiles and handcrafts. Alternatively, the Tibetan market is bustling with Kashmiri merchants selling carpets and embroidery. Unlike its neighbouring resort of Anjuna, Calangute is not known for its hectic nightlife, but there is a cluster of bars along the beach. Nearby Baga also has a further amount of late night bars which offer the latest music if you want to dance the night away.
The main attraction of holidays in Calangute is undoubtedly the beach, its one of the best in Northern Goa there is plenty of sun loungers where you can lie back and enjoy the warm winter sunshine or try your hand at the many water sports on offer, or for those looking to just chill out there are plenty of quiet spots. Enjoy a meal at one of the beachside cafes that offer fresh seafood and Goan curries or enjoy a nice cold refreshing drink.
