Historical Fort
May 2020
Fort Aguada is a well-preserved 17th Century Portuguese fort, along with a lighthouse, standing in Goa, on Sinquerim Beach, overlooking the Arabian Sea. Lots of history attached to this fort. During our family visit to Goa in Feb'20, we visited the fort. From parking there was a small walk through rocky pathway. The entry fee is Rs. 25 per head. This historical fort is not very big neither has too many things to see, hence can be covered within 1 hour. The view of adjacent sea from the top of the fort is quite impressive.

Lovely location
Mar 2021 • Family
I was here for 2 nights and reception staff (Sawan) was kind enough to upgrade me to the beach facing room on request. Good food and service as expected. Vincent was always happy to help during breakfast hours. People in our next room were a bit of a nuisance with their doors open and talking as max colume but then what can hotel do if I don't complain.

Overall a good stay and beautiful location!

Fort Aguada through a scenic road for nice sea view
Feb 2021
This historical site is not so big and can be covered within 30-50 minutes. 2 wheeler parking is 50/- and entry ticket per person is 25/- One can also try booking entry ticket through online and get 5/- discount. Overall this place is plain land with one light house (which is closed for public) and nothing else other than nice view of Arabian sea and sunset. But the real beauty is the road from Taj Holiday Village to fort which is very scenic.

Aguada Fort
Jan 2021
Fort aguada is a place to visit beacuse it will take you away from the beaches of Goa. An hour just required to visit it being on a hilltop the view of the sea is excellent.Though ther is not much to see in the fort, a small light house is there which is closed to the public and a tank for harvesting rainm water which is also locked. So nothing much but the 4 enclosed walls from where you can get a good view of the surroundings.

Nice place to visit
Dec 2020 • Family
The fort has got pretty good view of the sea. Preferred to go in the evening to reach by 4.30. Walking around the fort took us an hour. They need you to scan qr code to buy tickets but the worst part is there is no connectivity and could see lot of people struggling. We went a day before but had to come back since I and wife couldn't connect online. We went back to hotel booked online and came back the next day. Luckily we were staying close to the fort. It's best if u prebook online on asi.payumoney.com.Evening is best time to visit and it closes by 6pm.

Make sure to buy the ticket online. It cost 20Rs per Adult. They don't sell tickets out there instead one needs to have online eticket to enter the fort. If you think you can buy it online outside the fort, yes u may but phone signals are very poor up there and might waste lot of ur time. Make sure u drink lots of water and carry a hat and umberella

A wonderful spot for viewing the beautiful sunset
Nov 2020 • Couples
Aguada fort , unlike Chappora fort is maintained by Archaeological Society of India and has a minimal entry fee. It’s such a cool spot!!! The overview of the sea is really beautiful. There are places, where you may get a shade to save your head from the scorching sun rays, though I would suggest to visit the fort in the evening and enjoy the beautiful sunset from above. Parking is just outside the main gate.

Kindly note, due to covid crisis, tickets need to be booked online and per day they sell only 2000 tickets. The figure may seem to be huge but believe me, you won’t get a chance if you won’t book a ticket in the morning or may be the earlier day. We went twice 😂. First day, all tickets were sold, but we collected all the information as to, how to book tickets and all and finally we visited in the evening the next day. I will be attaching the picture of the web portals, from where you may book the ticket. So, don’t miss it !!

HORRIBLE
Nov 2020
Lately they have come up with a system of online booking. To avoid crowding at the gate it seems. They couldnt have come up with a more useless system which was absolutely not thought thru. First of all the basic problem with online booking is that there is no range in the area. Airtel, Idea, Voda etc all have less connectivity. The website takes for ever to load and when it does, it takes a 5 or 6 times to get thru. The people manning the counter say they are helpless. They directed to on Smt V Vidyavathi Director. Who never picks the phone.
Overall a useless and horrible experience. Never go there with family
