Candolim - A fun-filled sojourn on your visit to Goa.
Candolim, situated north of the Mandovi River, is home to Goa's most well-known resort and tourist hamlet. As a result, it is not your average backpacker destination. When compared to its livelier neighbour, Calangute, Candolim beach does not have much to offer. However, if sunbathing and the odd plunge are your thing, Candolim will provide the ideal experience. The bulk ship ""River Princess,"" which went aground 100 metres off Candolim Beach, is one among the more remarkable sites. Don't miss the Aguada Fort while visiting Candolim Beach.Candolim is also a popular nighttime destination due to its many excellent restaurants and nightclubs.
