A must go

It is a long walk to see it but worth it, the view from top is very scenic. I loved the view from top.

This is a great photo place to visit in North Goa. Just 10 bucks to visit and you're atop a light house with a great view.

The view from the lighthouse at For Aguada down below is simply awesome. Look down to see the Mandovi river flowing into the Arabian Sea and the sea waves lashing on the tree lined shore. The sun shimmering on the waves makes brilliant photographic composition.

A nice place to go but you wont be missing much if you dont, sort of like a sight seeing place, if you have better things planned up, give this a miss.

don't waste your time here as there is nothing much to do here. A better option would be to go to Sinquerim beach which is super awesome. Travel behind the fort if possible as you can get to see a better view from here!

Would recommend you head here early in the morning or in the evening. Carry a bottle of water, apply lots of sunscreen & take appropriate hats/sunshades to protect against the harsh sunlight. There are stalls outside selling hats among other things for the shopaholics out there.

The fort has a fantastic view of Panjim and the sea. One can read the history of the fort, it is well explained. A good visit for history buffs.
