Martin & Donna visited here on December 2009
Great beach, lovely warm water. Plenty of beach bars to cater for all tastes. The resorts of Calangute and Candolim are very lively with a great variety of restaurants and bars. You really can find whatever you want here, whether it\'s staying up and partying the night away or enjoying a more laid back, relaxing and romantic holiday. A short inexpensive taxi ride to Baga will provide even more nightlife should you want it.

yvette visited here on November 2009
India is a fantastic place to visit and it is must, i would definately go back but i would not at this resort again, it needs a serious facelift to attract holiday makers.

As for the entertainment it was zilch but there are so many other places to go and see.

The Preac her visited here on November 2009
Calangute was a good resort to stay, as far as the cleanliness, everywhere we visited (bars/restaurants)were clean enough, it was just the rubish on the roads that seemed a problem.

Entertainment was fine as we were all happy to just have a few beers together,and make our own entertainment.

Beach was brilliant as we used the Dolphin shack, and was waited on hand and foot for two weeks.

I would definitely visit Calangute again, but when we do go back to Goa, we will probably try Candolim.

Mo visited here on November 2009
I know that giving honest low ratings would make it appear we didn\'t like it in Calangute. However this is not the case. Yes it is manic, dirty and apart from shops, bars and restaurants, there is little entertainment. However I love the place. You can sit in any restaurant or pavement bar and people watch for hours. Some of the food served in the unlikeliest of places, can be excellent.This is north Goa\'s busiest beach resort/town, and you either love it or loathe it. It is between Candolim and Baga (10 minutes either way), and perfectly central for getting around. Yes, there are tourist bars which many find \'commercial\', but we are those tourists, so everywhere we go looking ...
for a deserted beach/ resort, we make it touristy.
Having said that, there are very few bars run by English. All staff and owners are Indian. The only thing English is in their name, ie Red Lion, Public Bar etc.
The beach is busy with domestic tourists who arrive by the bus load, so we rarely use it for sunbathing.
With a scooter (or using local taxi\'s) you can choose where to go each day.
We will definately return here. Having stayed a number of times in Candolim, Baga, Arpora and Cavellosim, we have always visited Calangute and will continue to do so.

Mr & Mrs Singleton visited here on October 2009
As it was the start of the season the beach was very quiet and other shacks had not yet opened. Which for us was perfect as the wedding photograhs on the beach are amazing.
I will return many times as it is a quiter location if you need to rest and chill, but if you want more entertainment and the hustle and bustle you only have to srtoll down the beach for 20 mins.

Coral Plunkett visited here on April 2009
Calangute is a busy holiday resort. Litter and mess everywhere. Little is done to keep on top of the rubbish and it definately smells. Taxi drivers are one of the worst trying to charge RS400 for a RS250 fare. There is little entertainment in Goa most is provided by the hotels, but there are many bars and restaurants along the street, although the best food I believe is located in Flortentines - Saligao and Mapusa - Downstairs in the Stomach and the Heera Classic 4th Floor. The beach by the steps is busy and very dirty but the candolim end is very nice, although the tanker which was run aground has caused major problems with the currents and parts of the beach are dangerous.

Rubbish everywhere still but I have visited for many years and know what to expect.
Calangute beach is a mess near the steps with domestic tourists disposing of their litter everywhere, far better beaches further afield.

morris visited here on February 2009
calangute is situated in an ideal position ,to get to the many attractions goa has to offer,the beaches are fine but swimming can be limeted by the tide it is not possible to snorkel etc due to the murkiness of the water also the waves can be very strong knocking you off your feet and with strong rips,the town itself has many varied restuarents catering for all tastes motorcycles/cars can be hired and there is an abundance of taxis,night life is very limited mostly to bars,not realy anything for children

anna and scott visited here on January 2009
We preffered to use the beach at candolim as it is cleaner and quieter than calangute, we used bobby\'s beach shack which had great food and the staff were really nice. Other nice restaurants were Over the flames, east meets west, after seven, roma ital. Cocktails and dreams down tito\'s lane in baga does the best cocktails and is worth a visit. Overall we liked calangute and would definatly return it\'s so cheap and easy to get around you can just jump in a tuk tuk and visit baga or candolim.

angela visited here on January 2009
calangue was a mental place...its so busy and the drivers are mad.....lol.....the roads are full of cars, buses, scooters, tuk tuks, cows, dogs and people all trying to get somewhere quicker than the other...its so funny.we went to baga beach and thought it was much quiter and prettier. brittos and oceanic are a couple of the best shacks we went to at baga beach.theres also a little restaurant we found on the last night in candolim called coyotes and i wish we had found it earlier as it sold frozen strawbwerry daiqiris and had great food and ambience.we went to the prison which was crazy. there is a company called daytrippers run by a yorkshire fella called eddie and they ...
are fantastic...we went to the waterfalls and they are spectacular and also on a trip called all in one day and we seen everything..a village, a hindu temple, a school, the cashew factory, the spice plantation which was great and we rode on,washed and were washed by the elephants...our tour guide avi was so informative and very funny.theres a place in calangute called the chippy and i would advise anyone to never eat in there as the food was awful, we ordered food but left it and just paid the bill as it was awful.all in all we had a great holiday and are in the process of looking for a return trip in march

jude goody visited here on January 2009
We enjoyed trying different restaurants in the resort, particularly those used by locals, where you can get an excellent vegetarian meal and drinks for under 100 rupees per person.
The resort, as with most resorts in India, is not particularly clean, but that is part of its charm. Cows are regularly seen munching on plastic bottles and rubbish that litters the streets.
I cannot comment on the entertainment as did not experience it. A visit to the cinema in Panjim is a must. We were fortunate to be able to see Slumdog Millionaire there on its opening night.

Ali & Co visited here on January 2009
Calangute is a good resort and quite lively in the evening if you go into town. There is always the pestering from taxi driveres and sellers.
The general area along the streets is strewn with litter as it everywhere else but the beach is kept very clean. Dogs can sometimes be a nuisance on the beach.
There seem to be far less sellers on the beach this visit and several shacks have security guards patrolling to ensure sellers are kept away.

We stayed in Calangute which is busier than Candolim but this year both were very quiet ,people complain about dirt,cows,pigs and even dogs but after the first hour of the most amazing food,smells and happy happy people this all becomes part of it, a sheer joy.Hotel Carmino is great to stay at air con no extra charge plus fans sat tv and so peaceful just what we all need at this moment in time.

We really enjoy the resort of calangute,people do call in dirty but it is poverty not dirt,these people do not have the money for such as dustbin men.There are many bars and plenty of places to eat and the beach is to die for,there are women going up and down the beach picking up all the litter,we will be back again next year
