More about the place covered on day 1

Chapora fort
 Built by Adi Shah of Bijapur on the southernmost headline of the Chapora River, it was intended as the border watch post to see various Hindu raiders during the 17th century. Later the Portuguese took control of Goa and re-built the fort in 1617.
This is the fort where the shooting of the famous Film Dil Chahta hai. You can get a scenic view of Vagator and Anjuna beaches from the southern ramparts and of Morjim Beach from the Northern ramparts.
 Vagator beach
The beach lies on the northern side of the Bardez taluka. Offering a stretch of soft white sands, coconut palms, and a scenic view of the Arabian Sea, Vagator Beach has dramatic red cliffs looking down on the shore and two freshwater springs within a stone's throw of the sea.
Anjuna Beach is popularly known as the freak capital of the world. It claimed popularity for its Trance Parties and the Hippies who tried to synthesize the spiritual traditions of the East and the art, ideas, and music of the West. Anjuna comes live with its ever-famous full-moon parties and the Wednesday flea market to take one on a trance trip.

 This palm-fringed beach was first discovered by the hippies. Bringing hordes of European tourists Calangute beach is the haven for hippies.  The beach is lined with shacks and stalls under the shade of palm trees selling everything from fried prawns and beer to trinkets made of seashells.  You can also have your fill of adventure with parasailing, water-skiing, wind-surfing, and dolphin trips. With a mind-blowing nightlife, bustling flea markets, and generous contributions of history, you can let your spirits scale high on the sky of experience.

Mormugao harbour
Mormugao Harbour is 34 km southwest of Panaji. Vasco Da Gama is 4 km away. Mormugao Harbour is one of the natural harbors in the country. Its history can be dated back to when 'SS Westbourne' sailed into this harbor in 1885. It is served by the two rivers, Zuari and Mandovi. Mormugao is one of the finest natural anchorages on the west coast of India and the hub of intense maritime activity.
Ancestral Goa
Ancestral Goa project is an effort to recreate the rural life of Goa as it had existed in the days of yore. Essentially a miniature Goan village, Ancestral Goa is the culmination of the dream and singular efforts of Goan artist, Maendra J. Alvares, who wanted to create a project that would preserve the heritage of the land and contribute to Goan tourism. The chief attraction of this open-air museum is the "Legend of the Big Foot". "The Legend of Big Foot" revolves around a footprint that was discovered on a rock and the footprint is believed to bring good luck for those who stood upon it. The lateritic sculpture of Saint Mirabai in Ancestral Goa has been cited in the Limca Book of Records as the Longest Laterite Sculpture in India.
 Mangueshi temple
This temple is one of the largest, most enchanting, serene, and most frequently visited temples in Goa. The temple is dedicated to Lord Mangueshi, an incarnation of Shiva. The temple is a superb piece of architecture with a number of other attractions.
