Candolim Beach is one of most frequented and popular beach of Northern Goa. The beach starts at the footsteps of the highly acclaimed Fort Aguada, built by the Portuguese in 1612.This sandy stretch runs into Calangute Beach, a busy and commercialized center.
The Candolim Beach itself is long and straight, backed by scrub-covered dunes, which is very popular with package tourists. These beaches are quite peaceful than other beaches of Goa as it is a dispersed village with no real center.
15 Kms from Panjim in the Bardez taluka.
Comparing to its surrounding beaches, Candolim is very quite, this is due to the fact that they didn't built resort all around the beach. It's a subtle mixture of people taking break from the Rajneesh Ashram in Pune, Tourist for long and short term period, and nature lover's. For the moment the village remains little more than a ribbon development of small hotels and cafes.
