if you like have a 360 degree view of the sea around GOA. This is the place you must go to. The only limitation is that you would need to climb a 12 foot ladder to reach the top most observation point of the lighthouse.

Located within the precincts of the Aguada fort is a four-storey lighthouse, erected in 1864 and arguably the oldest of its kind in Asia.This lighthouse was used during Portugal regime.There is no entry to the lighthouse.

This looked good when I visited first in 2004. Since then I have had a chance to visit many others and believe this one is average but highly popular because it's goa. Travel along the fort boundary, walk till the light house have a good look at the sea. Must watch if it's your first visit to goa

It has been well maintained/restored and is clean and completely intact. Not sure how good of a lighthouse it was as it is a bit away from the coast and is inside the... More

One of the focal attractions, Fort Aguada is one must.see spot, waiting to bowl you over not only by the wow views of the ocean spread in front of you but more because of the splendour n mystery of the place itself. And when you think of the details of the thinking n planning that have gone into building this... More
