This was our last evening in North Goa and we thought “you can never have enough of beaches, isn’t it” :)? And so, we went to the lovely Candolim beach.
This beach was less crowded than Baga and Calangute, and hence cleaner too. Waves were high here and we couldn’t go much deep into the waters. But we did have lovely walk to Fort Aguada.
After ordering in dinner for parents, we went out to explore the charming Candolim beach lane. This lane is much more relaxed and laid back compared to Baga and Calangute. It doesn’t have that hustle bustle and loud thumping music, but instead you’ll hear guitars playing everywhere. We got seated at a place called Teama, where the singer was singing both old and new English numbers with his own Goan twist 🙂
We gorged on some super delicious fresh mushrooms in butter garlic sauce, fish fingers and prawns, along with beers and wine. They also had mind-blowing criss cut fries. I will definitely go back for those fries and mushrooms. We also noticed someone who resembled Chris Martin, and had a debate on whether to ask him and confirm 😀
From Teama, we next went to 21 Coco’s, which had two incredible singers singing lovely songs. We had some superb Tom Collins, LIT and mojito. Food was not so great, but their music more than made up for it. I totally loved the singers(Toto and his partner), their extraordinary voice and their choice of music. I and Mr.H were waiting for our favorite ‘Time of my life’, and were so delighted when they sung that 🙂
If you want good live music and phenomenal local singers, this is the place to be. Two more singers Paul and Roy from the audience sung a couple of songs and were incredible.
Toto invited us to Cohiba the next day for some classic rock, but we were moving to South Goa and couldn’t come back. Definitely got to put it on my list next time!
I would highly recommend this place. Loved it more than all the places in Tito’s lane for the singers and lovely crowd.
