5. Take a scooter out and take a ride around the neighborhood.

The most effective way to explore the region is by riding the scooter, which is one of the best activities to take part in Candolim.

The thought of driving a bike within the city’s chaos may be overwhelming, but keep these things in your mind:

India appears to be a kind of chaos that is uncontrolled.

Although it might appear that things aren’t in order in the roadway, there’s an unspoken understanding about “flow”.

The most important way to stay safe while riding is to stay relaxed and keep your eyes on the road.

Be patient and alert to cows! They are known to snooze at the end of the street.

There are some spots close to Candolim which you should go to.


6. Go to Coco Beach.

You can navigate through the town of Candolim and cross the Nurul River Bridge to reach Coco Beachside.

From the bridge, it is possible to view the river and nearby mangroves in stunning resolution (but make sure to keep an eye on the road, as lots of people pull over to take pictures).

A very much working fisherman’s beach. Coco Beach. This is an excellent spot to observe the local customs of living. It is dotted with lively fishing boats, a plethora of nets, young children playing in the ocean, and smiling people.


7. Bagjuna Beach’s cliffs are well worth exploring.

Another (smaller) river’s entry point is in the other (Northern) part of Goa. Explore the fields of rice then cross the bridge over to the Baga River, and navigate your way through the chaos that is Calangute as well as Baga.

Until you get to the end and continue until you reach the end of the river (Xaviers Retreat House). You can leave your bike there and take the gravel road until you reach the somewhat isolated Bagjuna Beacmus.

There are specific sections where you’ll have to climb down the rocks while making your way up the cliff’s slope. Once you reach the shoreline, you’ll understand the reason for the long hike.

A small inlet between the rough rocks is home to the beach. There’s a small bar.
