Calangute beach is for all types of travellers, whether you are a nature lover or a party animal. Rightly called the ”Queen of Beaches”, Calangute beach is one of the most popular spots in Goa. I recommend you not miss a visit to this beautiful beach of Goa on your solo trip. It is the perfect spot to get away from the hustle of cities and refresh yourself in some natural beauty. There is so much to enjoy on the Calangute beach that the list goes on. However, here are some of the best things to do when visiting Calangute beach.

1. Scuba diving

I can never stop suggesting scuba diving to my readers. It is one of the best experiences you can ever have. Immersed in deep waters and witnessing the exotic marine life is one of a kind memory you can make. Besides, if you are a beginner and have never tried it before, then it is never too late to start. Calangute beach is one of the best spots for scuba diving. You can see some of the most unimagined creatures in the waters of Calangute. So, do not miss this opportunity as you don’t even have to worry about your safety because an instructor will always be there with you. Moreover, proper safety will be ensured before the dive. It can cost you around Rs. 1600 per person, including all the instruments. 

2. Exploring the Saturday bazaar

If you want to experience the culture of a place closely, go to its markets where you will find the most number of locals. The people usually come to the Saturday bazaar to buy daily life necessities like groceries and other food items. However, you can find some of the most beautiful pottery and textiles in this market. So, go forth and merge yourself in the colourful place. This will prove to be a very good opportunity to meet new people, and you can make one or two good friends as well.

3. Parasailing

I used to think about what it feels like to be a kite in the open blue sky. If you also think the same and want a practical answer to it. Then it would help if you tried parasailing on Calangute beach. Parasailing is a must-experience activity for those who don’t fear height and want to feel free in the blue sky. Tied up with a boat and a parachute, you can see the exact point of view of a kite in the sky. It is one of the most adventurous and fun experiences money can buy. Moreover, you can book parasailing at Calangute beach from many online websites. It will cost you around Rs. 600 – Rs. 700 per person. 

4. Jet skiing 

Are you roaming the streets of your city on your bike? What about the Arabian sea? I always wanted to ride my bike without any boundaries and traffic lights. Just me, my bike, and limitless road. But we all know that’s not possible other than on GTA. However, you can get a ride along the water of the Arabian sea. Turn wherever you want, stop wherever you need. You can enjoy jet skiing on Calangute beach. This is something you should try to explore the blue water of the Arabian sea from near without getting wet. You can enjoy 10 minutes jet skiing ride for Rs. 990. However, the cost of an instructor for 2-3 minutes is Rs. 400.

5. Banana ride

The adventurous ride on a banana-shaped boat along the Arabian sea is perfect for grouping up with new people. It will feel very amazing and refreshing. You will experience coordinating with strange people and bonding with them over this fun water sport. After all, what is the point of a solo trip if you cannot share experiences with new people and add a different perspective to your life? Besides, the sea’s cool breeze and cool water feel just amazing.

Moreover, there’s no need to worry if you don’t know how to swim. You will be provided with the life jackets, and proper safety will be maintained. The ride will cost you around Rs. 450 to Rs. 600 per head. 

6. Beachside dinner

A lot of adventure sports and fun until now. But what about your tummy? Visiting Calangute beach and not trying the amazing seafood at the beachside restaurant is the most unfair thing you can do to yourself. Hot and sizzling seafood and a cool breeze from the sea are a must-have experience during your Goa trip. I advise you to keep your stomach empty before sitting at the table for dinner as there will be many different things to try that you may not find in the restaurants back home. Moreover, you can have a delicious dinner in the beachside ambience for a very reasonable cost.
