Calangute! One of the most famous beaches in Goa India, and also victim of its own success!
Calangute beach is located in the south part of North Goa, and is in the middle of a 7.5 km (about 4.5 miles) stretch of sand.
This spot, as well as Candolim and Baga the other villages along this beach, used to be peaceful, but now, it is really a very very busy place, good only for those who love to mix with a lot of people. And on the beach, from Candolim to Baga, it’s almost only a huge line of beachbeds.
Now, let’s have a look at pictures of Calangute, village side first.
