Right on the beach, this beautiful structure is a little unlike the temporary shacks on the beaches of Goa. Gives a very cozy feel and the view and feeling from the upper deck is just amazing. Lionel the owner of the Shack was very very co-operative and hospitable. Sanju one of the staff always had a smile on his face... More

This was by the beach - had a beautiful view of the waves, and an excellent selection of drinks. We ordered two sea food thalis. While the curry was nice, beware of the mussels - they served us closed mussels, and we were unaware that those were not safe to eat. All in all, fab spot to chill and for... More

The first year we have been charged for sun beds. In the past the rule was to stay the day, eat and drink but times have sadly changed. Reasonably comfortable beds, not pestered by beach sellers. A very nice BLT sandwich and cold drink. Not too sure we would return though.

My husband and I have been coming here for a few years. The sun beds have nice thick mattresses, perfect for a day lounging in the sun. The staff are friendly. There is a wide selection of food that is good value and nice tasting.

Great location, has several seating options depending on if you are a couple, by yourself or in a large group, at no point do you feel stick against a wall and bored. The place has a great vibe and a good bar with a big range of liquor. It is when it comes to food that the place just begins... More

The flying dolphin is one of the many beach shacks on the southern end of the calangute beach. It has excellent wifi (which is how we ended up there.). Don't get too excited when you see espresso and macchiato on the menu. It's just there to fill up space, the only coffee is Nescafé. The food is ok,although I did... More

I place that I have been visiting for a few years now, the Flying Dolphin is a nice small restaurant / shack on Calangute beach. The place has friendly staff and a good menu. Being right on the beach it offers some good views of the sea. The place is also available for private parties.
