Candolim beach, you can still find some quiet and relaxing places for
yourself. Candolim is the best beach if you want solitude from the hustle
and bustle of Aguada though not expecting too much of facilities. There is
good food and long and straight beach backed by scrub-covered dunes with
little shelter, popular with package tourists. Candolim is very quite, and
this is due to the fact that there aren't resorts all around the beach.
