Candolim Beach In Goa

The city and the beach of Candolim have a lot of history dating back to it. The place is known for its bungalows and mansions, and the beach, for its ever-increasing number of resorts, parasols, and water sports facilities. Candolim gets its name from the Konkani word for dykes, ‘Kandoli’. Years ago farmers used to set up dykes to reclaim land from the nearby marshes of Nerul.

Candolim is only 3km from Calangute. An interesting thing about the beach is that a few decades ago it used to be the exact spot where sanyasins and rishis came to meditate and do yoga. Now imagine this to be one north Goa’s busiest beaches!

There are many Portuguese houses and mansions that have now been converted to hotels and restaurants. You can also find a smattering of chapels and Hindu temples, too, here. Candolim houses the accommodation of many celebrities and socialites. The Kingfisher Villa, home of Vijay Mallaya, is right across the main road.

Buses and taxis connect Candolim with Panjim, Calangute and Nerul. You can alternatively hire a motorbike to tour the nearby towns. There are budget hotels, luxury beach resorts as well as accommodation near Fort Aguada for those visiting Candolim.

And if you love to go boating, catch crabs and fish, then head for one of the amazing boat trips. You can spot dolphins and crocodiles on these trips. You can watch live go on near the estuary and the various canals.
