The first tourist beach of North Goa is also the site of Aguada Fort, one of the best preserved Portuguese coastal forts. West of Reis Magos, a long laterite Peninsula extends into the sea bringing the seven kilometers long Calangute beach to an abrupt end. Its name derives from the presence of freshwater springs-the first source of clear drinking water available to the ships arriving in Goa after long sea voyage from Lisbon.

Beach Popular For
Fort Aguada - A stunning piece of engineering, the Aguada Fort was built by the Portuguese to protect Goa from a sea based attack. If you come here, you should walk through the ruins and try and find the freshwater spring that fed the water reserves which gives the fort it’s name. In fact, the water storage capacity of this fort was among the largest in the East.

Aguada Lighthouse - Built in 1864, the Aguada lighthouse is the oldest in Asia. Today, the lighthouse complex still does a great job doing what lighthouses should, pointing a bright light towards the sea to guide ships along the coastline. It's not really a place for relaxing but is the best place for water sports.
