64%
voted as clean

Calangute Beach is the first beach where the hippie culture flourished in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The beach is situated at a distance of about 18.4 km from Bardez. It is surrounded by Baga Beach on its northern side and the village of Candolim Beach on its southern side.

This beach stretches from Calangute towards Baga and ends at Candolim. Calangute Beach is known for the popular flea market from where travellers can purchase various items like bags, handicrafts, jewellery, clothes and various other items.

Lush green bushes, golden sand dunes and tamarisk trees enhance the beauty of the beach. Calangute Beach has several nightspots and restaurants serving varied cuisines. Travellers can also visit the famous St. Alex Church, known for its beautiful towers and dome. November to February is the ideal time to visit the beach.

"A happening place"

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
The beach was clean and happening place. The shops nearby were good but pricey as usually with the tourists places. Best avoid buying from here as they do not sell anything unique. We did parasailing there and enjoyed a lot. However it was very very expensive compared to other destinations.

"Good beach but crowded due to its popularity"

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
It is one of the most popular beaches in Goa. It is a bit crowded and tends to become dirty during peak seasons. Good place to have a nice relaxing time and enjoy the sunset in the evening. It is close to Baga beach and my advice would be to go to one of them. No point in wasting your time going to both.

It was full, the beach had receded from my last visit to this place. The beach was as crowded with people, shacks, restaurants, vendors, hippies, Madrasis, Punjabis, you name it they were there.
