Aguada fort is a nicely maintained place. A really nice place to visit. The views from the fort are very beautiful. It is a very crowded place.

It has nice view of sea and greenery of Goa from this place. I liked the road to reach this place. very nice small road full of greenery and if you have rented a bike with your loved one. You will love the way to reach there.

Females need to wear closed lowers... ;-) because you need to climb steep ladders to climb up the lighthouse and many ppl follow you to get up as well. lovely view from the top of the lighthouse. there is an entry fee (Rs. 50/-) per head. located near TAJ Aguada Fort. Sun Set view is beautiful. Better to move out... More

I got a bit hot in October. Take your sunscreens, View is breathtaking. Sorry you cannot climb the lighthouse only the fort area is accessible. Ask locals for "Suicide point" Can get a bit crowded. It is a bit of a walk .

After vising Chapora fort we didn't want to enter Aguada Fort. But on reaching there we caught sight of the newly constructed lighthouse and it too catered to the tourists on fee. The View was awesome. From the top one could view the Chapora Fort and Baga beach clearly on one side and Miramar beach on the other. The Mandovi... More

If you love views, then you must visit this place. Here are things to note: 1. When you go to fort aguada, don't park in fort aguada parking, instead go straight till road ends. There is a gate of light house tower. 2. Just Rs10 ticket, you can just go up.
