    Visit only once
    Aguada Fort is a well-known tourist attraction in Goa, located on Sinquerim Beach in North Goa. The entry fee for Indian tourists is only ₹25. Both two-wheeler and car parking are available. It's an amazing place to visit as the view we get from here is next level. We get to see the view of the coastline and don't expect anything else. If you visit in summer be careful as there are not many trees/sheds where one can stand.

    Skip this if you have seen reis margos
    Actually if you have seen "Reis margos" please skip this. same type of architecture but cannons are missing here. heavily crowded. beat time to visit is early morning or evening else hot sun can be unbearable. watch tower is closed and can be seen from outside. parking is not an issue. lots of local shops nearby (missing in reis margos). as much of the original part is closed for general public hence you can not explore entire fort (can be seen from top). there is a jail nearby it which has separate parking and ticket - if time permits visit that.

    Great Sea view fort
    Good place to visit with family. Not much to see inside but the Sea view from the fort is great. Shops outside are too expensive so prefer to carry your own food and water than buying there. If its sunny, be ready to be grilled as there is no shade once you enter the fort.

    Trip trip to Aguada Beach Resort
    Aguda Fort was consructed by the Portuguese. Old lighthouse is out there. Unfortunately tourists aren't allowed inside the fort. Nearby is the new lighthouse where one is allowed to go to the top. View aroud is really beautiful.

    A Usual Fort.
    a usual fort. Most of its inner passages are blocked but you can have some spectacular view of the sea from its top. We went there at noon so its was a bit bright and hot take measures accordingly. you can have moderately clean toilet facilities there.

    Big but basic
    Very popular with Indians and at times very crowded on the battlements (very few railings) and at the entry point and the stairs. Big structure and a couple of information boards but otherwise it’s quite a quick visit. Note the admission fee is higher for foreigners

    Impressive and a majestic 17th Century Fort
    A well-known tourist attraction in North Goa. The day we visited it was hot and sunny but the sea was hazy. The best part was being an Overseas Citizen of India (OCI), the entry fee for adults was only 25 rupees, and the free entry for children under 15 years. The foreigners are charged 300 rupees. We took a walk around the perimeter of the fort. I did not feel that there was much to do and see.

A must visit while in Goa. One of the erstwhile largest fresh water reservoirs in Asia, it is a marvel of Portuguese engineering and offers excellent view of the Arabian Sea

Good view of the entire Oceanside.... While it's a little busy one, this should be one of your best places to visit while you are in Goa.
