A compact quiet place for a peaceful stay

Canacona is basically a very small place with every thing very compact and nearby. For example there is only one fuel station in Canacona. The crowd is also somewhat at peace and you feel a fine tranquillity in this place. The eating joints are not very flamboyant here but the food is cheap and offers good value for your money. Every grocery and general requirements are available here. Overall a place in Goa just away from Goa with all the beauty of Goa intact.

Canacona Overview

Canacona is a municipal council located in the south Goa District. It is also known as Kankon Taluka, which comprises Chaudi, Loliye, Patnem, Agonda, Poinguinim and Gaumdongre. Chaudi is the most developed of all and is the administrative headquarters of the main taluka. The Kankon Taluka which has an average elevation of 10 metres is famous for its old Palolem beach.

It is one of the five talukas in Goa, which is surrounded by Sanguem in the north-east, the Arabian Sea in the west, the state of Karnataka in the south and the Quepem Taluka in the north. Canacona is a corrected name of Konkan, which was once a district of the former kingdom of Soonda.

The kingdom of Soonda was partially annexed by Hyder Ali of Mysore and the remaining part was ceded to the Portuguese by the heirless king of the region. The remaining parts, namely Sanguem, Canacona and Quepem, were then incorporated in Goa.

Canacona was officially incorporated in Goa in 1794. This region is a unique fusion of the Indo-Portuguese culture and is famous for the beautiful Palolem beach, Agonda beach, Cabo de Rama Fort and Catigo Wildlife Sanctuary.

The region is largely populated by the aboriginals, namely the Kunbis, who live near Chapoli, Cotigao, Agonda, Khola, Kulem, Assali and Gaondongri. The main priest class belonging to this tribe are the Velips, who take care of the church and temple. This place is also famous for beach activities, dolphin spotting, water sports and many more. The ideal time to travel to Canacona lies between October and March.
