Sinquerim distance to baga and calangute

Am considering staying at Sinquerim beach later this year - I get the impression its fairly low key, how easy/quick is it to get to baga/calangute for a change in tempo? Any tips on stays at Sinquerim beach appreciated : )

Hi - I'd say Sinquerim beach is about a 7 - 10 minute taxi ride away from Calangute. Yes, quick and easy to get to. I never timed it but it seemed around this length of time.

Hi There,

You will be making a good choice staying @ sinquerim

it's only a little quieter than the main part of candolim and is easily walkable.

The resturants are plentiful and busy and a tuk tuk ride up to beach road is good fun and only 70 rupees.

the shacks at this end are good and plentiful and have comfy beds and great food.

enjoy !

We stayed here this year and it was superb. We walked to baga 3 times alon the beach and most days to Canalgute stopping off at the shacks for a drink and food. It was a really lovely walk with our feet in the sea.

Took a couple of hours but we had all the time in the world. Would love to be doing it now.

As per previous postings - you can walk to Baga in a couple of hours along the beach. Sinquerim is busier than last year and there are more water sports now.Unless you like being packed in ( Baga) I would stick to Sinquerim and Candolim then perhaps Morjim or Mandrem, about 1/2 hour or so in Taxi further North if you fancy quiet.

WE stayed in Sinquerim twice and really liked the area....Infact, we met so many locals the first time that they all remembered us the second time we stayed there..

We took a taxi to Baga/Calangute several times, but i can't say i liked those areas as much as Sinquerim/Candolim area...

Just stayed in Sinquerim a month ago. The area is quiet compared to Calangute, Baga and so on, but don't forget the disgusting old oiltanker standed on the beach......
