Anjuna Beach, Bardez

3.3
#17 of 108 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. Use our Goa road trip planner to add Anjuna Beach and other attractions to your Goa vacation plans.

  • Lived in anjuna not once, but life in the cottage at the Maggie is a fairy tale! It was so great, that really want to repeat! The beach itself, a market, shops and restaurants, we just adore ... And I already miss you on Anjuna (9 months have passed since we were there). Highly recommend for guys who love to hang out. However, the entrance into the sea not very good-stones.

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.
