sandwiched between the villages of Arpora ans Anjuna, in the north and Candolim to the south, lies the crowded village of Calangute with it's beach of golden sands. It is now dirtied because of constant garbage from low class tourists. Its coastal belt is full of swaying palm trees producing large coconuts that are considered to be the best in Bardez, if not in goa.

Since time immemorial this place has been the bathing place for the whole of Bardez, during the hot months, of march, April, may and October. Young and old especially those with arthritis or rheumatic troubles go there to take salt baths and enjoy the refreshing breeze. The village has some old manors belonging to families with glorious traditions.
