Location
:
Popularly called the queen of the Goa beaches, Calangute Beach is without doubt one of the best. The beach is very easily accessible from Panaji, the capital city of Goa. It will take you no more than 30 minutes by bus to reach Calangute. The city of Mapusa is only 8 km away from Calangute. The nearest airport is at Dabolim and the nearest railhead is at Karmali. If you intend to go to Calangute from Panaji, the best possible way to reach the beach of your dream is by a car.

Attraction:
The beauty of Calangute is legendary. You can spend some fascinating time here under the shades of palm trees. European tourists have a ball of a time here. This is a colorful beach full of colorful people. In the day-time you will find a lot of men, women and children thronging the beach. Adding to this festive mood you will find people selling snacks and small seashells.

Make sure that you taste the fried prawns. This is a Goan specialty and you will perhaps not be fortunate enough to find another prawn more tasty than this anywhere else. Among the other attractions that are worth visiting are the museum for art and craft as well as a church.
