Baga, 10-km west of Mapusa, is basically an extension of Calangute
Beach. The old red tiled fishers houses behind the dunes have long been
swamped by restaurant schacs and bars, handicraft shops, but one
doesn't feel quite as crowded as at Calangute. In the high season
(December to March) it can get very crowded with tourists. If you
traveler looking for peace and quite then it's better to head to more
secluded beaches up north.
There are a lot of activities you can do on Baga Beach; Para sailing,
windsurfing, wave surfing, Kite Surfing, jet skying, play volleyball on
the beach, Frisbee, football or just have a massage on the beach for a fraction of the price it is in western countries.
The rough-and-ready places dotted around the fishing village usually
have space for accommodation. Reasonable budget houses and rooms for rent
are also available on the quieter north side of the river.
Thanks to the droves of predominantly British package tourists who stay
here, Baga's nightlife is the liveliest in the area. Because of the stiff competition, prices are generally reasonable.
