Candolim, Goa – a good spot to stay

It can be hard to choose a location in Central Goa to stay.

Panjim is just too much city.

Calangute lacks charm and is busy.

Anjuna is quieter and can be lovely.

But another good spot is Candolim.

Leafier and greener, it is home to Fort Aguada, popular with local tourists and set in a large park area on the Mandovi River.

Also worth a visit is Newton’s Supermarket, at the junction of Candolim Beach Road and Fort Aguada Road, full of Goan specialities to learn more about ingredients in dishes, catch anything you’ve missed, or to take home in in vacuum sealed packs the ongoing pleasure of  Goan Cuisine for yourself or presents.

A great spot to stay in Candolim is Marbella Guest House near the Taj Fort Aguada and the bus station corner.

  1. Great ! Your blog with more pictures has become more practical but the few lines of comparison of Candolim with other hots spots of Goa are also praiseworthy. Your advice that Candolim is the best place to stay in Goa can be useful to those who are planning their Goa vacation in coming days or month.
