The Residency lends itself to a number of nearby activities being as it is handily situated within easy commuting distance of so many local and tourist hotspots. Besides the ubiquitous Calangute beach there are a number of other popular and scenic beaches nearby.
You can walk along the beach line from Sinquerim (passing through Candolim and Calangute) right up to Baga. It is a peaceful yet exhilarating experience and a great way to get all those cob webs out of your mind.
Alternately, you can hire a motorbike or scooter and go on a fast paced bike ride to the well-known 16th century Fort, i.e. Fort Aguada or to the sandy, rocky, picturesque beaches like Vagator (which lies 7kms away), Anjuna (which lies 5 kms away) or Chapora (which lies 9 kms away). Do be careful and wear a helmet whilst riding especially those who are not used to riding in India and those unused to the narrow and winding Goan roads.
Another special feature on this stretch of beaches is the flea market which takes place on Wednesdays in Anjuna and the Arpora Night market, with live music, which happens on Thursdays and Saturdays.
