Lighthouses in Goa

Goa's gorgeous blue beaches can only be truly appreciated from these lighthouses.The city is best known for it's buzzing nightlife, but amidst those multi-coloured strobe lights there are a few benevolent lighthouses that act as a guiding light to those lonely ships traversing the inky black waters of the night.Viewing Candolim beach from the lighthouse gives you an idea of just how vast and beautiful Goa truly is. Goa wouldn't be the same without these important lighthouses.

Here is the list of 3 Lighthouses in Goa

1. Fort Aguada Lighthouse

Fort Aguada Lighthouse

Beautiful Fort Aguada lighthouse dominates the landscape of the Fort. A bell inside the lighthouse later became a part of Our Lady of Immaculate Conception Church in Panaji. For a small fee, a curving staircase can lead you to the top from where you can have a beautiful view of the sunset. The mesmerising view of the setting sun combined with pristine water of Arabian Sea from the top of the lighthouse is so picturesque that it can capture the heart of anyone who comes here.

2. Betul Lighthouse

Betul Lighthouse

Painted in bright red and white stripes, the Betul lighthouse makes a good subject for the landscape photographs. Situated only 20 kilometres away from Madgaon, Betul is an unexplored part of Goa and it is more popular with people who travel to offbeat places. The lighthouse is situated atop a hillock in Quitol and is surrounded by tall pastures of grass on one side and with the coast on the other.

3. St. George Lighthouse

St. George Lighthouse

Standing 93 meters tall on Grand Island 8 kilometres away from Marmagao, the St. George Lighthouse is accessible only by boat. The lighthouse is painted in black and white horizontal stripes and stairs run outside on the cylindrical building. The tower and the site have been closed down.
