Calangute is a town
on the northern coast of Goa. It
is among the most popular tourist destinations in Goa.
Calangute is located 13 km from Panaji and
8 km from Mapusa.
Calangute is well connected to
other parts of Goa by road, and the roads are in fairly
The nearest railway station is at
Thivim, and taxi from there takes about 20 minutes and
costs around Rs.400. Other railway stations are at Margao and Vasco da Gama.
Frequent state buses go to and
from other parts of Goa, but if you're traveling a
longer distance, you need to change buses (for example,
from the airport you should need three buses to get to
Calangute). A bus from Panaji costs Rs.10-15 depending
on the route the bus takes.
Prepaid taxi from the outside
counter on the airport costs Rs.900, while polite
bargaining directly with the driver usually results in a
Calangute is a quite small area,
and you can easily walk your way through it.
Two-wheelers and cars are naturally available for hire,
and getting a taxi or an auto rickshaw is easy.

- Relax at the beach. The beach
reaches from Candolim to Baga. Known also as the Queen
of Beaches, although is rather crowded nowadays.
Unfortunately it has also been reported to be a place
where women risk to be harrassed. The sand is quite
full of beds for sunbathing. These are free at least
if you buy something from the beach shack, but expect
a lot of salesmen.
- If you go from the center of the town to the
beach, you will find a massive amount of water sports operators;
they are cheap and fun but their safety is very
doubtful due to the large number of jetskis operating
in the breaking waves. At this part of the beach there
are no beach shacks.
- Hire a bike or scooty for about Rs.150-200 per
day and roam around other nearby beaches like Baga,
Candolim, Anjuna. You can also ride straight upto
Aguada Fort. Make sure to fill your vehicle's tank
before you start off the journey. Fuels are sold by
many roadside shops at about Rs.90 per liter.
- Visit a tailor and make some nice clothes. For
the best results bring some pictures or existing
clothes for inspiration. Remember to allocate a few
days to get everything just right. Check out Mac Doulani in
Nizmar resort, despite the shabby location he's one of
The coastline is nearly full of
beach shacks that offer food as well. For better cuisine
you can choose from numerous (tourist) restaurants that
are found from the main roads. Food is somewhat
expensive by Indian standards, but cheap by Western ones
- an Indian curry with rice is around Rs.160 in most
places and should be enough to feed most.

Take any road going towards the
beach from the main road and find a bunch of places to
sleep as you approach the beach. If you choose a smaller
road you're likely to find cheaper places. Taxi drivers
will be happy to take you to a place run by their
friends / people who pay commission, but you need be
very strict with your price limit as they tend to take
you to a more expensive place.
