A fun place if you have company. Nice views and lot of spots to try creative photography. If it gets too hot, try the shade of the lighthouse facing the entrance. The pathway leading to the fort can be made better. Otherwise it's all good.

This is a fort which became famous after the Shooting of a Hindi Movie Dil Chahta hai. The fort itself is simple and there is nothing much to see out there. You will just get few view points of see from here.

I almost had a sunstroke here due to heat and humidity. Thanks to the NimbuPani ( Lime, water, salt, sugar syrup, Soda) Sherbet available at cost nearby. Good scenic beauty though and as I like to draw and paint sea and Lighthouses - memorable visit.

The lighthouse compound is maintained well. I was charged Rs 60 for entry tickets ( 4 pax ) and a still camera . We climbed up the stairs to reach the top. A small iron ladder leads you further up to the beacon. Great viewpoint - you can see the Fort Aguaga, beach and other near by places. Carrying any... More

Had to climb up and was not up to the idea of climbing almost a 10 story building. Hence had a look from down below. They charge to go up and take photos. However, this lighthouse is just next to the fort itself.

Tucked away to the side of the fort is the white lighthouse, great views on s clear day you can see southern Goa area. Worth a gander
