Among the most popular of the Goa beaches is one at Candolim, known for its white sand and picturesque shoreline. Sand dunes covered with scrubs complement the beauty of the sea. There are few water activities and one can also join the trip to watch the dolphins.

Aguada Fort and the adjoining lighthouse, church and jail garrison are among the top highlights of the beach. One can also find some inns and restaurants that serve fresh seafood and exotic cocktails. Remember that some of them can be extremely expensive. Small local bars (called tavernas) can be your stopover to enjoy the locally brewed drinks.

Tourists get to enjoy seclusion as the beach is not as crowded as the other famous Goa beaches. Shops selling cheap clothes and masseurs offering relaxing massage offers are quite common at the beach. Swimming is strictly prohibited until you have an expert company.  

Road: The beach is accessible from Candolim-Calangute road which has shops and restaurants by its side. Local buses from Panaji, Mapusa and Calangute offer easy access to the beach. The road is well-maintained and offers pleasant journey.

Railway: The main railway station in the region is at Margao, about 50 km. from the beach. Pernem, about 30 km. from the beach, is another rail access point. Choose to travel by taxis to conveniently reach the beach.

Airway: The only airport in Goa, Dabolim International Airport is about 40 km. from the beach. The best option would be to hire a pre-paid taxi to reach the beach hassle-free.
