Chapora Beach

Chapora is one of the most visited and crowded beaches of Goa along with the adjoining beach Vagator. It is 10 kms from Mapusa and synonymous with the 17th century fort of the same name that skirts the northern edge of the beach. Apart from the scenic beauty and the famous fort, the local fishermen community is another major attraction. Caring not for the blooming tourism industry, the villagers have zealously retained a life of their own. Day or night, crowds of people are always found at the beach making it a perfect haven for extroverts.

With a whole range of facilities for accommodation and easy access to the rest of Goa, Chapora makes a convenient base especially for a long-stay. Vagator is just a five minutes drive and Anjuna just 10. The black lava rock formations interspersed along the pristine white sand fringed by shooting palm trees with the azure waters in front lend a dramatic feel to the beach.

Getting There: The easiest way to get around Goa and even locally at Chapora is to hire a bike but if you are on a tight budget you can even hire motorcycle taxis. Otherwise, there are three direct buses from Panjim daily and every fifteen minutes till 7 pm from Mapusa.

Accommodation: There are plenty of high-end resorts, otherwise for an economical traveler, the guesthouses on the west side of the main street of Chapora offer comfort at reasonable rate.

Attractions: Great food at great prices, so you can eat to your heart's content here. There are plenty of restaurants and shacks scattered all around the beach. The beach is alive even at night. Tourists in their motorbikes zoom down to the juice bars near the beach for a pint of chilled beer and some genuine local Goan food. But the nightlife does get a bit muddy here with junkies and inebriated drinkers to be seen everywhere.

Spend a day with the fishermen community and watch the men cast their nests in the open seas oblivious to the rest of the world. Or you could observe their traditional houses built of coconut scattered under a dense grove of coconut palms which give the beach a true Hawaiian feel.

The Chapora Fort is a must visit. Though it lies mostly in ruins, it is still a favourite location for Bollywood movies and the view of the vast waters from the red laterite bastion is mesmerizing. The fort was constructed by the Portuguese on the southern cliffs of the Chapora River to protect Goa from their enemies. Though there are no water sport facilities and practically no good place to shop, do not be disappointed because Anjuna is just close by.
