Calangute, the Queen of Beaches is situated on the shores of the Arabian Sea in North Goa; it is bordered by the green villages of Arpora-Nagora, Saligaco & Candolium & is about 15km from Panjim. Calangute, the name seems to be a twist of the vernacular word ‘Koli-gutti’- Land of fishermen, or ‘Kalyan-gutti’ – Village of Art, or ‘Konvallo-ghott’ – Strong pit of the Coconut Tree. But with the arrival of the Portuguese the name probably got altered to Calangute and remained the same till date.
It was in 60’s that the hippies discovered this pristine surroundings & blissful serenity & the golden sands and later made it world famous. Its picturesque is enhanced with the shacks & stalls under the shade of the palm trees.
