Know More about this tour

Meet your guide at your hotel in Goa in the morning for the drive to Fort Aguada and its lighthouse, a 17th-century landmark on Sinquerim Beach, overlooking the Arabian Sea. The fort was constructed in 1613 and was a reference point for ships coming from Europe at that time.

Continue next to Reis Magos, a village known for two of Goas famous structures, Reis Magos Church and Reis Magos Fort; the fort was of strategic importance as the first line of defense to the coastal area.

Stop for lunch in the early afternoon (own expense), and then head to Calangute Beach, deemed the Queen of Beaches, where many shacks and shops attract thousands of tourists to palm-tree sheds, where a variety of foods and drinks from fried prawns to beer is available. Next visit Anjuna Beach, known for its trance parties held on the sand during tourist season. Anjuna also hosts a flea market (every Wednesday), where fruit, jewelry, clothing, and electronic devices are sold. Finally, head to adjacent Vagator Beach, which is a little more laid back but still pretty steeped in the rave culture of Goa. However it has also become popular with Indian tourists, who go particularly to watch the sunset from the rocks.

Your tour ends in the late afternoon with the roughly 1-hour drive back to your hotel in Goa.
