If you are staying in north goa, then its definitely worth a visit. Its on top of a hill and is a good bike ride. The view of the sea is lovely. Is advisable to go in the evening during the sunset.

Very closeby to Fort Aguada. The view is same except that lighthouse location is at more height than fort.

You should visit this place atleast once when you are in Goa. It is an ok place but a one time visit is recommended.

A little bit of Goan portugese history worth a visit when you are in Goa. Make sure to visit the place early morning as the ambiance and views are great during that time. Dont take any guides as they dont know much, explore the place at your own pace.

A must see for any Tourist to Goa......takes one back in time ....walking the ramparts of the fort surrounding the lighthouse .....taking in a glorious view of the endless ocean ....and in the process being nearly blown away by the strong winds !!!! Being able to gaze into the dungeons of a bygone era is truly intriguing.

We liked the amazing view around the Fort. We disliked the absence of proper display area with information regarding the history and details of the Light house and other area of the fort
