Calangute Beach Resorts: For That Perfect View of the Arabian Sea
What prompts tourists to book accommodation in Calangute beach resorts. There are several factors such as guests are welcomed with warm hospitality, excellent services offered at a low price, small trips are offered to nearby monuments and villages and scintillating view of the Arabian Sea shore. Now before I move forward with my article about Calangute beach resorts , let me give you a brief information about this beach.
Nestled on the pristine shores of Arabian Sea, Calangute Beach is fondly referred to as ‘Queen of Beaches’. The beautiful palms and coconut trees add to the beauty of this place. It was discovered by the hippies and thus became tourist’s cliché in the early 60’s. Hippies brought a large number of European travelers to the shores of Goa to admire and enjoy the picturesque charm and peaceful surroundings. It provides great opportunities of savoring a wide variety of lip-smacking Goan seafood delicacies. Various stalls and shacks located under the palm groves are a haven for foodies. Here you can feast on fried fish, prawns and other seafood items along with chilled beer.
In this article, I will talk about three resorts that caters to the growing numbers of domestic and overseas travelers on the Calangute beach.
