Calangute has a buzzing vibrant atmosphere
The road into town is awash with street vendors and stall holders selling local hand crafted goods which make ideal souvenirs and the obligatory haggling makes shopping here a lively and fun experience. The world famous flea market and moonlit parties on the beach at the hippy capital of Anjuna are an experience not to be missed, enjoy a yoga class on the beach, then relax as you watch the sun set on another fantastic day over the Arabian Sea.
The state capital of Panaji has a vibrant market full of colour and sound with the aromatic smell of spices drifting through the air. The magnificent Dudhsagar Waterfalls are a beautiful sight, as is the Bondla Wildlife Sanctuary with its captivating elephants. The nightlife on Calangute holidays is as laid back as the days; rhythmic music fills the air as you sample the delicious cuisine, enjoy drinks with the locals and watch the mesmerising sunset – this is as lively as it gets.
The beach front road into Baga has some fantastic restaurants with menus that spoil you as they overflow with traditionally cooked meat, fresh fish and vegetarian dishes. If you head a little further south of the beach you will find a few bars that stay open later into the night and early into the next morning.
Many people choose to stay in luxury hotels with private pools and direct beach access while on holidays in Calangute, but many others prefer the freedom that the family friendly guest houses provide, giving the chance to sample everything this beautiful resort has to offer.
