Anjuna Beach is one of the best known in North Goa, with its reputation growing out of the halcyon hippie days of the 1960s. These days it is still pretty laid back but draws a much more diverse crowd, many of whom are here for the heady party scene.
Anjuna Beach itself is everything you would expect from a Goan beach; a wide stretch of golden sand backed by palm trees and lapped by the warm waters of the Arabian Sea.
If you are looking for activities, there are a range of watersports on offer, including parasailing, windsurfing, scuba diving, and more. There are some great attractions nearby, including the Albuquerque Mansion and the Chapora Fort from which there are great views of the area.
Perhaps the biggest attraction to many visitors is the nightlife; with full moon parties, acid house parties, trance parties, and more this is a place to cut loose. You can also find dining, dancing, singing, music, exotic fire shows, and all kinds of things to do when the sun goes down.
One of the most popular attractions at Anjuna is the Wednesday Flea Market. Something of a throwback to the hippy days this sprawling and colourful market sells an eclectic mix ranging from regional handicrafts through to T-shirts and drums.
There are plenty of accommodation options at Anjuna with everything from funky budget backpacker hostels to elegant guest houses on offer.
