De Alturas Resort

Pretty as a picture and exceptionally relaxing, the De Alturas Resort is nestled in among Candolim’s green landscape, making it something of a secret haven. The pool and on-site spa guarantee full rejuvenation and with local cuisine being served in the restaurant, you can get a taste of the real Candolim without ever leaving the complex. The De Alturas Resort has been finished in traditional Goan style, with rich colours, plants, Buddha statues and luxurious soft furnishings everywhere. Step outside, and Candolim Beach is just half a kilometre away, with Fort Aguada, a hotbed of excellent restaurants and bars, just a little further.

Overview of Candolim

Holidays to India are fantastically varied, but despite the numerous contrasts between regions, they all have one thing in common: they’re absolutely unforgettable. Goa has become synonymous with luxurious beach getaways and incredible food, but with popularity comes crowds, which is why Candolim is such a haven. All about laid-back vibes and easy-going days, this part of Goa is where your troubles are left behind in favour of constant sunshine, paddling in the Arabian Sea and sumptuous seafood curries. Plus, Goa’s party capital of Baga Beach is only a short distance away, in case you fancy a more up-beat evening or two.

Things to do in Candolim

You’re more than like to spend most of your holiday in Candolim Beach, given that it’s so peaceful, has palm tress in place for seclusion, and boasts a number of restaurant shacks that serve up irresistible curries. You’ll want for nothing on this beach, which encourages you to get back to nature. If you find yourself turning into a bit of a beach bum, up the active stakes by taking a boat tour. There are plenty to choose from, as well as opportunities to learn how to snorkel and dive – which are both great for spotting dolphins and other marine life. Apart from the beach, Candolim is renowned for its plentiful restaurants, most of which serve up authentic Goan cuisine. You’ll find international dining spots too, but the local food is superb, so hunt out their favourite dishes and eat your heart out!


Resort Summary

When many people think of taking Goa holidays along the coastline, trance parties and jam-packed streets come to mind. But holidays in Candolim are wonderfully laid-back, still enjoying all the same scenery as its neighbouring resort Calangute but with the volume turned down. Wedged along the coast in northern Goa, Candolim is a haven for relaxation types, as the only thing that’s expected of you is to stretch out along the beach beside the Arabian Sea.

Located at the tail end of the beach connected to Calangute and Baga Beach, Candolim is the easy-going side of this trio’s holiday coin. When you aren’t at the beach, you’ll be wandering through local boutiques or pausing for a curry packed with fresh seafood. And if you’re in the mood for something a little livelier, Goa’s capital city is just on the horizon.
