A better place but in the last few years, owing to its popularity, it is damn crowded! I would avoid this during peak season. This place is best when it is calm & serene.

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.
