Calangute is Goa's flagship beach and it plays an irreplaceable role in the state's tourism sweepstakes. Stretching over an expanse of seven kilometres, Calangute beach is known by the sobriquet the 'Queen of Beaches' for its pre-eminence among the scenic beaches that dot the Goan landscape. Due to its extreme popularity, Calangute beach beckons tourists and backpackers from all over the world and can be quite busy at times especially peak season. Wherever you stay in Calangute you are not more than a few minutes walk away from good quality restaurants that sell affordable and great value food to tempt all. All Indian, Chinese and Europeans foods are generally catered for. Calangute beach offers an opportunity to enjoy great time with involvement in the water sport activities—surfing, water skiing and parasailing amongst others. Beach shacks are dotted all over Calangute beach offering refreshing drinks and good food, evening entertainment and night BBQs are available on the beach after dark. Calangute is the perfect tourist haven, completed with shacks and stalls under the shade of palm trees selling everything from fried prawns and beer, to trinkets made of seashells. Calangute's nightlife is surprisingly tame and provides a nice break from the wild parties at Anjuna. All but a handful of the bars wind up by 10.00 pm. One notable exception is Tito's at the Baga end of the beach, which stays open until after midnight in the off-season and into the small hours of the morning in late December and January. The river at Baga locates Mackie's Saturday Night Bazaar. The Wednesday flea market at Anjuna Beach and the Saturday night market at Arpora are both close by as well, and will satisfy even the best shopaholics.
