Calangute is the largest beach in north Goa and is known as the 'Queen of beaches'. It is situated 15km from the capital city of Panaji. Calangute is one of the busiest and the most commercialized beaches of Goa. Located between Candolim and Baga beach, it is a hub for tourists and backpackers from all over the world. The sound of pop beats and rock music in the air elevates the festive mood. The beach is also swarming with eating joints, shacks and clubs serving mixed drinks, beer and seafood making it a hot favorite among visitors. This flagship beach of Goa is also known for its water sports activities like parasailing, water surfing, banana ride and jet-skiing. Be sure to visit the Church of St. Alex while in Calangute. Once known as Kolongutt, this beach was renamed by the Portuguese and is now Calangute. The term 'Cal' refers to Goddess Kali who was revered by the local fishermen. Another possible origin of the name could be from the words 'Konvallo-Ghott' (pit of the coconut tree), since the village is surrounded by coconut trees.
