Vagator Beach takes its name from the coastal region in Goa’s north, close to the point where the Chapora River meets the Arabian Sea. Occupying a lush area of coast, Vagator Beach is a flat, broad expanse of golden sand surrounded by a mixture of palms, vegetation-covered low cliffs, and neatly maintained gardens.
Watched over by the historic Chapora Fort, refreshments can be found at several beachside bars, serving everything from chilled beers and fresh coconut water to flavoursome prawn curries. More active beachgoers can have a go at various water sports, which include parasailing and jet ski rentals.
Just as popular after dark as during the day, Vagator Beach is a celebrated party spot, with the clubs and bars pumping out hits until the early hours. Sunsets are a particular attraction for many.
