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.

Light house at the Fort Aguada is one of the best places to see the scenic beauty, From the lighthouse area one can see the full Arabian sea and the ships sailing in it, It is one of the best places to relax and chill out as this place is very calm and quite.

The fort is quite need and worth being there. The light house is less than a kilometer from the fort. Nothing much to see there.

Its a beautiful place for a calm, serene evening. Just enjoy the breeze & listen to the sea waves. You can also get ontop of the light house & have a beautiful time there

Here you can see the old lighthouse dated back to few centuries. If your a history lover this place is a good walkthrough the time. Anycase not more than worth 30 min trip. You also get to see some great views of the sea.

There is nothing special to see. It is big huge structure, there is a boundary wall, empty place in the center. Nice view of beach is there. There are nicer places to see nearby such as the jail. It is located right at the end near the sea. The view of the sea from there is very nice. One more... More
