Moh Maya while in Goa

This was my first trip to Goa and I loved the places of Interests such as the Aguada Fort in Candolim, the Beaches, the tourists that visit the places, the resorts, food, etc . It was just an awesome experience for me and I'd suggest folks to travel and experience more in this lifetime. The people are friendly and it just felt like home.

Awesome resting place for ships in olden times

It was a very nice experience to the fort. It is mainly a watering station for the ships. It is also a resting place for the ships in olden times. I liked the place and its scenery there. Great place, enjoyable.

Portuguese Fort

Situated a bit far away from the city, an hours drive from city. The Fort is well-maintained and reminds of the era gone by. The Fort is well preserved and gives a nice view of the Arabian Sea. Though the Fort does not have much to offer, only views.

Old decommissioned Fort

This fort was a very famous fort for its water storage tank in the middle of fort. Nothing great to look inside as most the places are locked or not allowed to go. The sea view is really mesmerizing during the sunset. The lighthouse is an attraction nearby.

WOW! The place is simply WOW

Dream place to be in, particularly during the sunset, when the sea breeze sets in. Its an awesome place to be in. The place is very charming, right by the sea and has historical importance as well.

Sea side fort

The fort build near the Goa jail is the good site to visit in a trip to Goa. Although the fort has not much to share just with its only historical importance and light house scene available. The fort inside is all open not worthwhile to visit in a hot sunny day as one would look for the shadow place to hide the scorching heat of the bright sun during the day time. But the sea side scenes form the towers of the fort are remarkable and we took some photos as well.
