Both stretches of coastline are characterized by visually appealing rocky headlands. Sinquerim offers windsurfing, water skiing, jet skiing and various other water sports rentals, with consistent surf perfect for bodysurfing or boogie boarding. Candolim is recognizable by the huge, rusting tanker, the River Princess, grounded just offshore that has become somewhat of a landmark.
If you’re planning a visit to Aguada Fort, make the steep and often hot hike up to the fort in the morning before cooling off at the beach in the afternoon. There are plenty of restaurants and nightlife hot spots nearby both beaches.
