I happen to attend a marriage of my friend in Goa with my friends. next day evening we went to calungute beach which is about 10km from panaji bus stand. It's one of the cleanest beach in Goa. We totally enjoyed our beach party.

Beautiful and clean beach. Lots of activities like banana boat ride, para sailing etc. sand is a bit even here and you might find a sudden ditch when you wade into water. Lots of shacks with awesome food.

I personally wouldn't risk children going into the sea as the waves can get pretty high and strong. I saw many an adult lose their sunglasses, hats and even bikini tops.

This beach is an extension of Baga beach. Mostly it is very crowded. It is good for water sports as you can get good deals here.

Was pleasantly surprised to see that the place which is normally crowded like hell was quite clean and wasn't as crowded. Overall, it was a very good visit.

I would not recommend this beach for families with small kids. It is crowded with single adults (mostly men), the sand has motor oil stains and boats taking tourists for rides come up very close to the swimming areas.

Beautiful sand and a warm sea, but be careful getting out beyond the breaking waves as they do come in strongly and can knock you off your feet. Recommend Pedros beach shack for cheap meals and Prince of Tides for cheap but well organised tours...More

No need to change the Hotel. Just try to spend more time at nearby Beaches like Baga. Calangute is much busier so little dirty, rest no any concern is there. Best of Journey.

Taxi would be available. A local Taxi app Goa Miles is there, you can try that. Taxi is quite expensive. Best of journey.

Shacks will be open but weather will be little hot,sunny and humid. But good part will be it’s less crowded.

Aggies Beach Shack (18 Replies)
This place is number 1 not only on the Calangute restaurants page, but all Goa yet I've never heard anyone talk about it on here which seems a bit strange. Anyone who's been tell me if it's worth its lofty rep or is it in a false position on that chart? For it to out score some of the restaurants I have eaten at, it must be some kind of heaven!!! When you walk onto Calangute beach from the High St and go down the steps, is it towards Candolim or Baga? And how far along?? Thanks!!!!

Don't know where you have seen this lofty reputation but Aggies is a popular shack with lovely food and Aggie is a lovely guy who makes his visitors welcome. To get to Aggies go towards Candolim - it is a nice walk and look for the shack sign. If you go there ask him about his brothers restaurant in Baga - just off Titos road - who does the best steak ever.
