Hi it is a good place to visit Wonderful monument. Good place to view sea creek separating North Goa with Panaji and Old Goa. Though the access to lighthouse is locked it is worth visiting to get the feel of Portuguese era.

My hints: Rent a scooter or motorbike first. Get a Kingfisher (red) on the way. Find a nice spot for watching the sunset. Enjoy:-)

Fort Aguada light house is near Fort Aguada around 10 min walking distance. You need to pay an entrance fees of just rs10 and then climb up to the ligthouse. It offres excellent panoramic views of goan beaches..sinquerim and calangute can be seen from here.

This place looks like it is straight from a fictional romantic novel. Beautiful lighthouse and a nice place to just chill out with friends or even if you are travelling solo.

It used to be a fort, and a lighthouse. Today it stands just so that tourists can come and look at it, and then forget about it, just like a white car you saw that other day. If you happen to be around this area then maybe give it a visit, otherwise explore the rest of goa.
