Nothing much to offer maybe thats why no entry fee. Visit in evening to enjoy sunset views. Sun plays a spoilsport in the afternoon. Can easily pass an hour here in photography/selfies.

Fort Aguada is approx 6 km by road from Candolim Beach and 3km from Sinquerim Beach. There are transport options of tuk tuk or taxi, but we chose to walk. This is a little unsafe due to no paths, erratic driving and warm weather. It...More
