Even though only parts of this fort remain it is still very beautiful and definitely worth a visit. Built by the Portugese and the Marathas the fort is a wonderful amalgamation of the two cultures. This is very apparent in its architecture.
The primary purpose of the fort was to keep prisoners and to provide freshwater to the sailors. The cells of the prison were designed in such a way that very little sun-light would reach the criminals. The place has vestiges of the huge building though and it provides a magnificient view of the sea. There is a short and stout white lighthouse in the premises that acted as a beacon for the sailors, but now lies abandoned.

It is a good place for friends, family. You can explore around the place extensively. You can also trek the hills. But please keep the environment clean. Do not litter. There is a lighthouse and you can climb it. It offers a panoramic view of the entire beach and is a view to behold. parking facilities is not good for all. But there could be some amount of crowd. There is a jail on the foothill near by fort. You can visit it if opened or trek down the hill and reach it. the route of this fort is very good and classy and also best for photography. Specially evening time is best for visit to this place.
You can get very amazing view of sea from near it's boundary. It is a very big and good place prefer to visit here during morning or evening that will be better. You can get good air at that time but at noon it is very hot here.
Overlooking the vast expanse of ‘seeming to be endless’ blue waters in front of it, Fort Aguada is one of the most popular tourist destinations of Goa. It receives a lot of tourist traffic all around the year. Reasons are that it’s excellent for sightseeing and also that it stands as a testimony to the glory of Portuguese empire. I loved this place I want to visit again soon.
Nice place to roam around & take few snaps. Beautiful scenic view from the top. It can be very hot specially in summer days. Proper car parking there. Some shops there as well for snacks & juice.
Good tourist attraction. Natural state were intact as maintained by authorities. You can imagine for the life of the person living their. Now used as a lighthouse. You can reach for it if allowed. Good few from the fort toward sea. If you have GPS enable phone you can reach here easily.
