"Crowd with unnecessary stares." new review

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted 1 week ago
Calangute is one of the famous and tourist location but I have been there almost thrice and never liked it. The beach is like too crowdy no place to sit no place to relax and no peace of mind and somehow tourist will scan and stare at you completely irrespective of what you wear shorts longs anything. Avoid it rather Baga beach is far more better if you enter from Anthony's shack the end. Very relaxing, quite and peaceful.

Calangute Beach is one of the finest beaches in Goa & most probably India for me. I visited Calangute 1 year ago with my friends & we altogether loved this beach firstly it is very clean no wrappers stuff, water is not so clean though but it is not bad, they provide rides such as Banana.

Quiet place in the night to sit and relax, during the day there is a lot of activities like paragliding, banana ride, scooty ride, etc but mind you its expensive.

"Most famous tourist attraction"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Sep 14, 2016
Calangute beach one of the busiest beaches in North Goa and is donned by shacks and multiple restaurants and bars. The pathway leading to the beach is surrounded by all kinds of tattoo shops, clothing, accessories, etc. There are number of water sports activities which can be used by the tourists but be sure to bargain as the prices first quoted are pretty steep.

"Goan Beaches"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Aug 27, 2016
It was a mesmerising experience.

The serenity and occasional high tides of Arabian sea was a treat to watch.

Beach side food joint served delicious sea food.

Overall it was an experience of lifetime.

I will recommend a Goa visit for everyone to see the white sand beaches and churches and the local Goan dishes and that too at nominal package rates as compared to the hefty foreign beach packages.

"Calangute beach is cleaner than Baga"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted Jul 16, 2016
One of the many popular beaches of Goa. Best time to visit is from September to March, when shacks are open and one can enjoy the meal on the beach with Beer/Drinks.

Water sports are available too.

"World famous beach"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Jun 7, 2016
Calangute beach is world famous so it's too crowded 90% to 95% tourist visit and enjoy sea swimming and Bath on this beach. You will found mix category people you will found on the beach with heavy drinks, Non dinks. Some time you might feel insecure with very heavy drunk people. May be sometime you have to pass through bad experience also.
