Candolim, Goa

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.

Goa diaries, Day 1

We made a pit stop at Dudhsagar Spa Resort on the way to North Goa. It’s a big open place near Mollem check post, you can’t miss it. 

Service was very slow but our pakoras turned out to be fresh and tasty. We finished our snacks and started for our first destination Calangute, which took around an hour and half to reach.

Pubbing punjabi style @ Peddlers

24@43 – Crowne Plaza, Electronic City

Such a lovely place! I regret not having discovered this earlier. After reading nice reviews on zomato, we decided to give this place a try for Sunday brunch.
