Silver Sands Holiday Village

The Silver Sands Holiday Village has an envy-inducing location that guests rave about. When you stay here for your holiday, you’ll be 100 metres from the beach and within walking distance of the attractions in Candolim.

The rectangular pool is a great place to escape the heat, and close to the pool, a bar serves cocktails day and night for a small charge. The hotel has a strong focus on food and dining with three restaurants available, including two a la carte places.

Overview of Candolim

Goa is a place of mystery and wonder. A stay at the Silver Sands Holiday Village places you perfectly to explore Candolim’s beach and town centre, as both are within a couple of minutes’ walk.

Goa has a fascinating mix of Indian and Portuguese culture that makes this Indian state truly unique. Goa’s the smallest region in the country, which is great news if you’re looking to explore.

Life here revolves around the glorious beaches. By day, you can soak up the rays and, in the evening, get dressed up for some unforgettable dining experiences and parties.

Things to do in Goa

Goa is where east meets west. When you leave the Silver Sands Holiday Village and tour Candolim, you’ll find evidence of this everywhere, from the architecture to the food.

Goa’s surroundings reflect its heritage, but to experience authentic Goa, you need to head to the markets. All you need to do is follow the smell of exotic spices wafting through the air.

The markets themselves are a sensory overload. Haggle, jostle and meander as you collect the ingredients for your favourite recipes or buy all your souvenirs. As you travel through Goa’s cities, you’ll find music on every corner and street vendors selling foods almost worthy of a Michelin star.

A treat for every sense, holidays to Goa are like no others on the planet. It’s no wonder that so many British expats now call Goa their forever home.

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.
