BEACHES

North Goa Beaches

Anjuna

2 km to the north of us (take a left from the front gate)
This is the party beach of Goa, and also the most visited.  The beach itself is just about ok, but the backdrop and more importantly; the interesting group of pleasure seekers is what makes it perhaps the most charming beach of Goa. Moonlit nights are favourites to bring out the party animals, and parties dot the Goa beach-line here, all the way to Vagator.  Anjuna is also famous for the Wednesday flea market, a landmark tradition of Goa tourism.

Baga

2 km to the south (take a right from the gate, then a right after 23 restaurant)
This fishing village beach of Goa is the northern end of Calangute beach, south of Anjuna. Compared to Calangute, it has more character, with its scenic beauty enhanced by the creek and the Retreat House perched on the hill.  It’s popular with those who love to use it as a base for water-sports and fishing in the area.  At high tide the beach strip becomes very narrow, sandwiched-in by the shacks and fishing boats.

Calangute

3 km South of us (take a right at the front gate)
This huge 7 km sweep of sand was called the Queen of Goa. Till the mid 90s Calangute (along with the adjoining Baga) used to be the beach of Goa for international tourists, but a lot has changed since then.  Calangute still remains the most happening beach of Goa, and the most crowded. The beach is rock-free and offers good swimming (though beware of the sudden drop and seaward current in some parts).

Vagator

4 km north of us (left from front gate).
Just to the north of the party beach of Goa is a fascinating group of small Goa beaches, more salubrious and laidback than Anjuna. Relatively secluded, these are situated on the crescent shaped Caisua bay, along the Chapora river basin, in the shadow of the ruins of Chapora Fort. Vagator is one of the most beautiful beaches of Goa, laying on inviting sandy coves, between coconut palm shaded rocky headlands. Generally peaceful, in peak season it attracts day-trippers, and during the night typically boisterous Goa beach parties are a regular feature.

Candolim

About 5 km south of us (take a right from front gate).
This beach of Goa is lesser developed than the adjoining Sinquerim or Calangute beaches, but far more upscale, with a far fewer % of the riffraff.  A favourite among the British and other international tourists.  Backed by dunes, this straight and long Goa beach is home to some excellent beach shacks.

About 5 km south of us (take a right from front gate).
This beach of Goa is lesser developed than the adjoining Sinquerim or Calangute beaches, but far more upscale, with a far fewer % of the riffraff.  A favourite among the Russian, British and other international tourists.  Backed by dunes, this straight and long Goa beach is home to some excellent beach shacks.

Sinquerim/Fort Aguada

About 9 km south of us (take a right from front gate).
This is landmark beach of Goa tourism, due to the three luxurious beachfront Goa resorts of the Taj Group of Hotels and the seafront Fort Aguada that overlooks them. The firm sand on this ‘exclusive’ beach of Goa continues past Candolim and further north to the happening Goa beaches of Calangute and Baga. Watersports on offer are windsurfing, parasailing, jet skiing, water-skiing, scuba diving and sailing.

Arambol

About 20 km north of us (take a left from front gate and follow gps).
Arambol is a bit far from us and at almost the northern tip of Goa.  But well worth visiting quite simply because it’s too far for the riffraff to go to.  Popular destination for discerning, international & sun worshiping tourists Arambol combines the calm of South Goa with the charm and bustle of the North.
