Anjuna beach….My favorite spot in Goa

Anjuna Beach….
Located about 18kms from Panaji and situated in Bardez taluka, the Anjuna Beach is the part of a 30 km extended beach coastline along the west coast of Goa by the Arabian sea….

The Village of Anjuna, a five square mile area is nestled between the Arabian Sea and the Hill overlooking the beach. The beach is famous for its stunning natural beauty with swaying palms trees and soft powered white sands. The beach is marked by an unusual rocky formation overlying a cove of white sand and black rock that juts out into the Sea. This area was known as the Jewel of Anjuna and called “Ozran”.

Anjuna Beach is also an ideal place for full-moon parties at late evenings….held especially during Christmas and New Year.

Tourists love enjoying the blissful atmosphere of the luminous full-moon casting a spell and the soft foamy waves kissing their feet.

At the north of the Anjuna, is its famous flea market, held on Wednesdays, where small cafes, bars and Kashmiri handicrafts ( i have bought some…) stalls are lined. This area offers pleasurable shopping experience with quality products at reasonable prizes.

Bathing and Swimming is generally safer at Anjuna than at most of the nearby resorts, especially at the more serene southern end of the beach where a rocky headland keeps the sea calm. At this place sun -starved European tourists laze around bathing in the pleasant sun.

And later….some chicken and beer after swimming on a lazy sunday….while I stayed at Alto Porvorim, close to Calangute…another lovely beach… we will discuss some other time….
