Goa - Anjuna Beach

Anjuna Beach


Anjuna Beach, 8-km west of Mapusa, is one of the most popular beaches of Goa. It is just south of Vagator beach and north of the Baga-Calangute-Candolim stretch, from which the Baga River cuts it off. Anjuna beach was a  haven for the hippies in the sixties and seventies.. It is then when the full moon parties began and continue until today. Now they are called rave parties with loud music and dance.
It is divided in North, Middle and South Anjuna. You can enjoy hotels, bars and restaurants at North Anjuna beach. Middle Anjuna beach has its own share of beachfront shacks and small budget hotels and South is the large flea market ground.
Swimming in Anjuna can be dangerous due to a strong undertow, especially on windy days. On quiet days, however, when the waves are small, you will see lots of people bathing. In the middle of the beach there is a small reef. We have seen snorkelers there on very quiet days. The safest swimming is at the south part of the beach.
Goa Anjuna beach comes to life with the Wednesday flea market opens. You can buy  just about anything, from Kashmiri and Tibetan handicrafts, Indian and Goan souvenirs to second hand motor bikes. Be good at bargaining! You will also be able to find a mixture of delicious Goan cuisine. Be there early to avoid the midday heat.
The new, nearby (3 miles) Saturday Night Market becomes more popular this days however.
