Anjuna Beach

Anjuna BeachLocated around 18 km from Panaji, Anjuna Beach is situated in Bardez taluka of Goa. Located 8 km west of Mapusa, It's the part of a 30 km stretch of beach coastline along western coast of Goa by the Arabian Sea. The premier attraction is Anjuna beach include Flea Market and Chapora Fort. Bathing at Anjuna Beach is generally safer than its nearby-located resorts. A rocky headland keeps the sea calm especially at the more peaceful southern end. Village of Anjuna in Goa is a five square mile enclosure nestled between Arabian Sea and the Hill overlooking the beach. Swaying palms, soft sands and natural beauty are the hallmark of this beach. An unusual rocky formation overlying a cove of white sand and black rock juts into Arabian Sea. Often called as "Ozran", the area was known as the Jewel of Anjuna.

Tourist Attractions in/around Anjuna Beach

Besides Chapora Fort and Besides Chapora Fort and Albuquerque Mansion, a mountain is there in the east. If you are tired of the party and interested in returning to civilization, you can climb the mountain. Get to Baga there onwards where one can catch a ferry out. Panajim too is not far away. Chapora Fort gives us a scenic view of nearby Anjuna and Vagator beaches. It has remained somehow intact except a few interesting ruins. It was a domain of the Muslim rulers before the Portuguese wrested it. Marathas hijacked three priests from the Chapora Fort and made them Hindus in 1683.

The weekly Flea Market of Anjuna in Goa is much popular with tourists. It were actually a few hippies who gave rise to the market back in the 1960s. The hippies started off with selling chillums. But today, the scene has quite changed; the market has come to spread over a huge area and the commotion begins right at dawn. Crystal jewellery, trinkets, fire-sticks, juggling balls and different types of clothese are sold here.

The Full Moon Night Parties at Anjuna were a rage for travellers at one time. Though these trance parties are still held at Anjuna beach but the original spirit is missing somewhere. You can enjoy these parties and meet with like-minded travellers but time remains a constraint. These parties can continue only till 10 PM.

If you like swimming, South Anjuna in Goa has a small bay for you. Tourist can spend some good time boating here as well. Also you can play racketball or simply enjoy walking.
