ANJUNA BEACH OR VAGATOR BEACH – WHICH IS BETTER?

After a wonderful flying experience of parasailing in Candolim Beach, we headed straight to the hotel. We had our lunch and started to the most renowned Anjuna Beach in Goa. The place is known for its flea market, held on Wednesdays. It is around 8 KM from Calangute and in 20 minutes, you can reach the beach.

It wasn’t clean though and there was not much crowd. It’s more like a secluded beach because of its mystic rocky outcrops along the shoreline. It’s not suitable for swimming.

You need to be careful while you walk on those rocks. It’s slippery and the rocks are so sharp. I was telling Lazz, that it resembles the gift of nature ‘kulipaniyara Kal’. You could just sit on the rocks and watch the sunset. Besides, you can see a lot of broken beer bottles.  What’s wrong with these people? Does breaking bottles surpass the joy of drinking? 🙁

Anjuna Beach Nightlife:

Anjuna beach gets life at dusk.  Do enjoy nightlife at Anjuna beach with a mesmerizing view along the shoreline. There are lots of cafes and restaurants facing the sea-shores. You could explore different cuisines. Do try some Goan flavors.

Anjuna Beach to Vagator Beach :

After a while, we moved to Vagator Beach. It’s 10 minutes’ drive from Anjuna beach. This is yet another rocky outcrop beach in Goa and nothing much.  You could spot majestic Chapora Fort from here, which lies in its close vicinity.

We stayed only for 5 minutes as it was not clean though. Moreover, empty stares by the locals might scare you. This place is definitely not for female solo travelers. And, literally, I didn’t feel like eating anything out there in any restaurants in Vagator.  To add to our woes, there’s no parking lot.

Vagator Beach North Goa

I neither liked Anjuna beach nor Vagator beach. There are better beaches in South Goa. Unfortunately, we missed to find Anjuna Flea market. We ended up circling the same place twice with Google Maps savvy. Our second day trip ends here.

We headed to our hotel and planned to visit Bom Jesus Church and Se Cathedral in Old Goa. Take a look at our second day trip to Fort Aguada Goa – The Lone Lighthouse!

Here is a link to our trip to Harvalem Waterfalls  Goa – A Secluded Magnificence on Earth!!
