Anjuna Beach

Having gained quite a reputation for its wild parties across the world, Anjuna Beach is known as the Hippie Capital of the World. This tiny coastal village lies on the shore of the Arabian Sea about 16 kms away from the capital of Goa, Panaji. The Beach is easily accessible with buses plying from Mapusa every one hour, otherwise there are bikes that can be hired for RS 250 to 400 per day. What makes the Beach extraordinary is the unusual arrangement of soft white sand cut through by red laterite rocks.

Discovered by a group of hippies in the 1950s, Anjuna continues to be their favorite holiday destination this is why the Beach comes alive at night with wild parties, loud music and dances continuing till the wee hours of the morning. These moonlit parties have gained international fame for Anjuna. The Beach becomes particularly crowded during the Christmas and New Year and during this peak season it is filled with hoards of make-shift shacks opened till late at night serving the most exquisite Goan cuisine, seafood, local port wine and beer. However, if you are looking for a swim it is advisable to check with the local lifeguards first because of the strong under currents.

There are plenty of hotels and guesthouses with varying ranges all over the place. A better option for those looking for a long term stay are the houses at the back lanes. These houses are available for rent and are quite easy to spot if you keep your eyes open for the "To Let" sign.

Along with the acid house parties, the first thing that comes to mind with a mention of Anjuna is the Wednesday flea markets. A paradise for shopaholics where anything from small trinkets to trance music, an elephant ride to a hair cut, fake sadhus waiting to be photographed, clothes and ornaments – all are available at unbelievable prices if you care to bargain.

If you’ve had enough of the parties and shopping, enjoy the architectural splendor of the 80 year old Albuquerque Mansion or the classical balconies and the floral etchings at Mascarenhas Mansion. Enjoy the most splendid views of the nearby Anjuna and Vagator beaches from Chapora Fort, a former home of the Muslim rulers.
