Chapora fort is a must go place whenever you are with a friend in Goa, The fort might be broken but the view it provides is not. Experiencing sunset here is what you can look for a perfect day with your close friends.

Beautiful place. This is place is very famous for the Dil chahta hai movie. But there is a breath taking view of Arabian Sea and Vagator beach. You will get lots of inputs to take photos.

Hi traveller! No timing, it is open always and you will need to hike a bit to get there. According to me the best time is during sunrise or sunset. Happy travels!
