Anjuna Beach

Anjuna beach is a small, rocky beach located in the Bardez Taluka of North Goa, one of the twelve Brahmin communities in the state.

Once home to the hippies, Anjuna beach is famous for trance parties and has a no. of cafes, bars and nightspots. A picturesque beach with an active nightlife and a no. of water-sports to offer, Anjuna attracts monks, artists, hippies and party goers alike.

One can be adventurous and go parasailing, yachting or windsurfing. Or, one can simply laze around on the silver sand, soak in the sun, try out Fenny (a Goan alcoholic drink), have a bite at one of the many snack shacks and later revel in the glory of beautiful sunset followed by a romantic candle-lit dinner in some beach restaurant!

Anjuna Beach is vast and thus is divided into North, Middle and South Anjuna Beach. Most of the hotels, bars and restaurants are located in North Anjuna Beach. The middle Anjuna has an array of beachshacks too. It is here in Anjuna that the famous Flea Market is laid out every Wednesday.

Anjuna is not really one of the safest beaches to swim as the rocks create an unpredictable undertow.
