Anjuna Beach, Bardez

3.3
#17 of 109 in Outdoors in Goa
Lapped by foamy waves and sheltered by tall palm trees, Anjuna Beach is mostly famous for its full-moon parties with trance music. The '60s hippies were the first to discover this spot and organize rave parties, which became a trademark of the area. Ideal for swimming, the southern end of the beach features a rocky promontory that keeps the sea waves calm. The north section of the beach offers a range of small cafes, bars, and stalls selling Kashmiri handicrafts. Note that many, mostly harmless stray dogs travel in packs along this stretch of the coastline.

    This place is famous for the shopping and so many places to sit on the mountain edge overlooking the beach. Beach is now a days getting crowded as there are less empty beaches but the sunset is indeed...  more »

    Located on the way to Vagator, Anjuna has a good scenic view and also it's a most populated beach. The way to the beach will give u lot of options for shopping.  more »

    I do not know what to say, it was very frustating to see the condition of Anjuna beach. I had had a very pleasent memory of the past experience here. I do not know who to blame nature or negligence.  more »

Where to stay in Goa

One of the more affordable regions for staying in India, Goa offers a good range of sleeping options, from budget to luxurious. Visitors looking for that feeling of home away from home can explore rental apartments, which offer more space than a hotel room and often come with fully equipped kitchens. Look for an apartment in Oxel or Siolim, peaceful villages with gated communities and a range of facilities. Beach houses and private villas offer an alternative for those with deeper pockets, while beach huts/shacks work well for budget-conscious travelers.
