Anjuna Beach
With its fluorescent painted palm trees and infamous full moon parties, ANJUNA, 8-km west of Mapusa, is Goa at its most "alternative". A popular beach area adjacent to Chapora Fort. At night, the Anjuna band plays for the beach party. The attractions of Anjuna Beach are the magnificent Albuquerque Mansion, the Mascarenhas Mansion, SSand the Chapora Fort. Anjuna attracts a weird and wonderful collection of over monks, defiant ex-hippies, gentle lunatics, artists, artisans, seers, searchers, sybarites and itinerant expatriates. As of its pleasant climate, Anjuna can be visited at any time of the year. However, tourists should beware the heavy rainfall between June and October. The period from November to February is the best time to visit Anjuna.

AGONDA BEACH
The Agonda Beach huts are the noted feature that makes stay at the Agonda Beach both special and exciting. There are only two Goa beaches that provide this opportunity to travelers. Goa Agonda Beach is a 3 km lush of green cottages, cover 120 acres of forest land. Climb up the near by hill to the Cabo De Rama Fort that stands in ruins and have a spectacular sea view. The Agonda village beach boasts of hospitality and affordable accommodation to spend a long vacation amidst history and nature. Agonda Beach- Access: You can hire a taxi from the Margao railway Station and the airport. It is an easy drop from the near by Palalem Beach Goa

Arambol Beach Goa
One of the unique features of Arambol beach is that it is secluded and manages to look quite untouched and primitive, though it is every tourist's dream beach and is often frequented. Arambol beach in Goa, can be a sheer delight if a person is looking for just the sea, himself and tranquillity. The main beach at Arambol is good for a swim, but as you walk down the beach you will come across small fresh water pools where you can float and relax. Or you can give yourself a mud-treatment. Places of stay are scarce here. So it is always better if you can take a sleeping bag with you if you are planning to stay the night over, listening to the crash of the waves. Or you can check in at some other beach hotel in Goa and go to Arambol just for the day. Tourists visiting Arambol beach can take one of the many buses that regularly ply between Arambol and Mapusa, and also between Arambol and Chopdem. It takes around 40 minutes to reach Arambol from Chopdem for a distance of 12 km. On market day's tourists can take boats to Anjuna. To move locally in Arambol, vacationers can hire taxis or bikes that are easily available.

Baga Beach Goa
Baga Beach is part of a 30-km stretch of beach coastline along the west coast of Goa by the Arabian Sea, 10-km west of Mapusa, is basically an extension of Calangute beach. Lying in the rocky, wooded headland, the only difference between this far northern end of the Baga beach and its more congested center of Calangute Beach is that the scenery of this beach site is more varied, unspoiled and scenic. The quiet atmosphere and isolated location of Baga, beside the scenic beauty that surrounds it, with the creek and the Retreat House perched have contributed to the beach being a favourite of the beach lovers. Baga beach is very popular with western tourists who love to use it as a base for water sports and fishing in the area. Entertainment Baga's nightlife is the liveliest in the area with live bands playing at most restaurants oulets. Most of the travellers end up at Tito's, Eating Places Baga has arguably the best range of restaurants in Goa, from standard beach shacks to swish pizzerias and terrace cafes serving real espresso coffee. Tourists can opt for a candlelit dinner at the beachside, or a traditional Goan meal at the shacks and restaurants offering continental as well as tempting seafood.

Candolim Beach Goa
Candolim beach is situated in the north of Goa and lies close to the Sinquerim beach.Its an ideal beach for those who are slowly getting tired of the crowded beaches of Calangute or Anjuna. Though tourists quite often frequent Candolim beach, you can still find some quiet places for yourself. If you want to try your hand at fishing, you are welcome to do so too. The beach also offers various water-sports activities-right from parasailing to water-skiing… name it and they have it for you. There are special guides also who can help you through these activities. Goa Candolim beach also arranges special beach excursions wherein a tourist is taken right to the middle of the sea from where he can capture some memorable sunsets.

Calangute Beach Goa
Under the shade of palm trees, bathes the Queen of Beaches—Calangute. Calangute seems to be a distortion of the local vernacular word—‘Koli-gutti’, which means land of fishermen. Some people connect it with Kalyangutti (village of art) or Konvallo-ghott (strong pit of the coconut tree) because the village is full of coconut trees. With the advent of the Portuguese, the word probably got distorted to Calangute, and has stuck till today. In a green semi-circle, the villages of Arpora-Nagoa, Saligao and Candolim do their bit to enhance the divine beauty of Calangute. There are picturesque agors (saltpans) at Agarvaddo, Maddavaddo is full of madd (coconut trees), Dongorpur skirts a bottle-green hillock and Tivaivaddo laces the beach. It was the hippies who discovered the pristine surroundings, blissful serenity and golden sands of Calangute beach. The hippies also spread the word around and this brought hordes of European tourists. Calangute beach is often crowded with people, children making sand castles, colorful crowds surging towards the sea and the young and old alike lazing on the golden sands. This picture of a perfect tourist haven is completed with shacks and stalls under the shade of palm trees selling everything from fried prawns and beer to trinkets made of seashells. Entertainment Entertainment Calangute's nightlife is surprisingly tamed and provide a nice break from the wild parties at Anjuna. All but a handful of the Bars wind up by 10.00 pm. One notable exception is Tito's at the Baga end of the beach, which stays open until after midnight in the off-season and into the small hours in late December and January. The other places that consistently stay open through the night at Calangute are a couple of hippy hang-outs in the woods to the south of the beach road. Pete's Bars, a perennial favourite next door to Angela P. Fernandes, is generally the liveliest, offering affordable drinks, backgammon sets and relentless reggae. Further afield, Bob's Inn, between Calangute and Candolim beaches, is another popular Bars. Eating Places Calangute's Bars and restaurants are mainly grouped around the entrance to the beach and along the Baga road. As with most Goan resorts, the accent is firmly on tempting seafood, though many places also serve vegetarian dishes. Western breakfasts also feature prominently at some of the restaurants in Calangute.

Dona Paula Goa
At the place where two of Goa's famous rivers meet the Arabian Sea is the secluded bay of Dona Paula with a fine view of the Marmagoa Harbour. This beach of Goa carries with it an aura of both romance and myth - haunted by Dona Paula de Menezes; tourists throng the Dona Paula beach not only in search of the deceased beloved, but also to indulge in water sports on the clear waters. The Dona Paula Beach offers an opportunity to the tourists to have a sunbath and enjoy water scootering and motar boat rides. Named after Dona Paula de Menezes, the Dona Paula beach is popularly known as the "Lovers Paradise" due to a myth that has been attached to this place. According one legend the Viceroy's daughter after facing objections from her family about her love affair with a poor fisherman jumped of the cliff. Another legend says that punished for captivating Francisco de Tavora, the Count of Alvor with her charm the Viceroy's daughter was pushed off a cliff to drown in the waters below. Her irrepressible spirit still continues to haunt every visitor with legends of her lovers. She is even supposed to have been seen emerging from moonlit waves wearing only a pearl necklace. Located 7-km from Panjim, nestled on the south side of the rocky, hammer-shaped headland that divides the Zuari and Mandovi estuaries, this former fishing village of has now become a commercialized beach resort. Beside the beach water sports attractions, do visit the official residence of the Governor of Goa, known as Cabo Raj Bhavan, situated on the westernmost tip of Dona Paula. Along the road leading to this place lies the ruins of the small military cemetery the British built at their brief occupation of the Cabo, to deter the French from invading Goa. There are several shops along the beachside, which sell variety of goods ranging from eatables to clothes. Fishermen-turned-local vendors also sell straw hats, lace handkerchiefs, and spices in these shops. Feni and port wine-the two Goan liquor specialties-are a must buy and local liquor is easily available. Indian handicrafts and jewelery are available at the Indian Arts Emporium in Dona Paula.

Miramar Beach Goa
On the way to Dona Paula, 1-km ahead of the confluence of the Arabian Sea and Mandvi River, under the palm shade, is "Gasper Dias" or Miramar Beach and is just 3-km away from the capital city of Panjim. In Portuguese language 'Miramar' stand for viewing the sea. Situated on a good location for evening walks, the coast is spread upto 2-km, having a fine silvery sand bed. From here one has an excellent view of the Aguada fort just across the Mandovi River.

Mandrem Beach Goa
By its rustic ambience, Mandrem takes us back in time. The northern village of Pernem has been surrounded by a hill-range covered with caju plantations and a shoreline with a twin-beach buckle. It's known for fine Goan feni and expert stonecarvers. However, in recent years it has been ruffled from its cattle-driven pace by the tourism trail passing through it to the Arambol beach. After crossing the Chapora river either from the Chopdem-Siolim ferry-crossing or the Colvale bridge, one lands in the Velhas Conquistas of Pernem. From Colvale, the distance to Mandrem is slightly more than a half-an-hour drive across undulating countryside. The road forks a little less than a kilometre away from the Chopdem ferry-point. The route climbing the hills offers an exhilarating view of land and sea. The coastal route via Morjim village proves equally exhilarating.

Morjim Beach Goa
Morjim is a picturesque portion of Goa's 103-square metre long shoreline in the North. The swish and rustle of the waters of the Arabian sea and the Chapora river bestow on it a bountiful catch of choice fish and coconuts as well as beautiful vistas. Hedged by hillocks, which chase the habitated plains and gently dissolve on the pristine beach, Morjim offers gorgeous viewpoints from sea-level upwards Morjim interests different people for different reasons. For sure, it's a rural place shrouded in quaint customs and traditions like most Goan villages. It boasts about one of the loveliest beaches. Moreover, it's the home of Goa's traditional folk-dance ghoddemodni and maddachem godd (coconut jaggery).
