“It is a good spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Good spot, view is good. It is one of the interesting points in Goa. It is bit crowded, hence if you are interested in spending time, it is not the place.

“It's ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

What can I say it's a fort overlooking the sea it's worth taking a look but I wouldn't bother with a second visit . If your a little unsteady on your feet there are some stone stairs that can be difficult to walk round.

“Beautiful Fort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

Fort Aguada is the best attraction in North Goa. It is always overcrowded .The fort is maintained well and you can enjoy amazing breathtaking views from the top of the fort.

You should not miss out this beautiful Fort, if you visit North Goa

“A must visit if U are in Goa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

This fort is very well maintained. The light house gives awesome view of the arabian sea.Although the fort is not very big but its a great place to enjoy the leisure with friends and family and have some lovely photographs.The best part of this place just as all places in Goa is that U dont have to pay for parking.Please do read the history of the fort written on the board at the enterance.Please avoid going in the afternoon when the sun is above your head with full glare.
