Aguada Beach Goa

Location : In North Goa

Highlight : Fort Aguada

Aguada beach is located in the north of Goa and 4 kilometres away from Sinquerim beach in Goa. With its exotic tropical beauty the pristine Aguada beach attracts tourists all over the world and India just like bees are attracted towards fresh blossoms. The people of frigid regions where sun rays don’t reach adequately flock to India, especially Goa, for its vast array of sun-bathed beaches. That is the reason Goa beaches including Aguada beach look so colourful and vibrant with so many visitors of different regions of the world gathered together. However the sole attraction of the Aguada beach is the historical edifice - Fort Aguada built by the Portuguese in the 16th century.

The Fort of Aguada was built by the Portuguese to defend Goa from the attacks of the invaders and to stop foreign intruders or enemies from entering through the River Mandovi. The fortification borders the seashore. From the bulwark of Fort Aguada, one can get a breath-taking view of the golden beaches encompassing the borders of the Maharashtra. At the centre of the fortress is a spherical lighthouse tower which was probably built in 1864. If one manages to reach the summit of the lighthouse, then the fantastic sight of Cabo Raj Niwas can be viewed. Presently, the Fort presently houses the central jail.
