Silver Sands Sunshine

The Silver Sands Sunshine combines a central location in Candolim with an exotic-looking pool.

The design of the hotel is traditionally Goan, with whitewashed walls and terracotta-tiled rooftops. Inside, the hotel is packed with dark wood and bold colours.

At the outdoor pool, one corner is sectioned off for little ones, while the other end has a tranquil and relaxing waterfall.

By day, the hotel’s restaurant doubles as the pool bar, so you can relax with a cocktail. In the evening, dishes are served straight from the grill. For something different, there’s a friendly tavern that’s open until the small hours on the row of shops outside reception.

Overview of Candolim

In Goa, the beaches are the stars of the show. However, life here isn’t all about the beach, and on a holiday to Goa, you’ll discover a unique mixture of cultures, stunning architecture and beach shacks that sell authentic cuisine.

Holidays in Candolim are wonderfully relaxed. You still enjoy the same scenery as nearby Calangute, but with the volume turned down. It’s a tranquil heaven and days here are spent lounging on the gorgeous sands that overlook the Arabian Sea. Away from the beachfront, you can wander through local boutiques or stop and enjoy a curry that’s packed with fresh seafood.

Things to do in Goa

Guests love the central location of the Silver Sands Sunshine. It’s just a couple of minutes’ walk from Candolim Beach and the nearest bars and restaurants.

The beach is shared with nearby resorts and spans over eight kilometres, so you’ll never be short of space. Backed by palm trees and huts, the beach shacks also turn into restaurants in the evening, serving some of the finest curries in the area.

If you want to travel further across Goa, the capital of Panaji is only 12 kilometres away. Packed with cobbled streets, colourful villas and lost-in-time churches, Panaji is a relaxed state capital that really steals the show.

Holidays to Candolim are all about rest and relaxation. So, take things easy and make your base under the ever-present sunshine.

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.
