Costa del Candolim

Candolim is only about 10 minutes drive down the coast from Anjuna but feels a whole world away.

Anjuna has a very laid back and fairly relaxing atmosphere, where Candolim feels like it's smack bang in the middle of the Costa del Sol (but with more Russians). The whole resort feels like it's packed full of chip eating, loud mouthed package tourists.

We're not sure why someone would choose to come here for a holiday as Candolim is famous for being home to the rusting tanker the River Princess which was grounded on the beach during a storm in June 2000. It's not exactly what you'd call picturesque.

The only reason why we've come here is to visit the Sunburn music festival which happens on the beach over 3 days between Christmas and new year.
