Disgusting Toilets in Caldolim & Calangute

Just returned after our first visit to Goa. I do wish I had done a bit more research and asked a few more questions on basic hygiene in bars and restaurants.

I was shocked, appalled and disgusted at the standard of the toilets in the bars and restaurants we visited. Goa has been on th e tourist map for over 20 years so there is no excuse for dirt and debris.

I would advise anyone to carry anti- bacterial hand wipes and sanitising hand gel after using the lavatories. Obviously business owners have become complacent and feel that as they have a captive audience they don't have to provide clean basic facilities, but this basic lack of hygiene will just drive tourists elsewhere.

Its India what do you expect, if you travel inland or further South, people think of nothing about deffacating on the beach and toilets are either by the roadside or down a shared hole in the ground. India is a tough place to travel around, Goa is as westernised as it gets.

ChristiP, head for Bono's for a truly sublime toilet experience. Clean, smell nice, separate ladies and gents, and the very best thing, for me at least, is the lovely soft light that filters in through the woven rushwork walls. Takes 10 years off when you look in the mirror. I could stand there all day wishing I really looked like that.
