Anjuna Beach And Its Wild Waves

It was our second day in Goa. We got up early in the morning and after freshening up, went for the breakfast at our hotel’s cafeteria. Then we headed straight towards the Anjuna Beach. The beautiful and pristine Anjuna beach is located in Bardez, North Goa. It has a 20 kms long stretch of golden sand along the coast of the Arabian Sea. To the extreme North of Anjuna is Vagator beach and to the far South is Baga Beach. Since we were staying near Baga so it took us more than half an hour to reach there as the route to the beach was a bit tricky. Comparatively less crowded than Calangute and Baga, it’s actually one of the most peaceful, calm and scenic beaches of Goa.

What I noticed that, Anjuna beach was totally different from the rest of the beaches of Goa as we had to walk down a grainy red sandstone pathway to get to the beach. This beach has a rocky shore surrounded by palm trees instead of the routine sandy beaches in Goa.


I would suggest you to go there for a quick short visit as it’s a rocky beach and there are no water activities. An hour time is more than enough to spend there, click photos, sit on the rocks, relax and admire the Arabian Sea. It was hard for me to even walk barefooted because of the umpteen pebbles and slippery rocks.

Anjuna Beach-Goa

Anjuna Beach is Famous for?

  • During peak seasons, Anjuna is famous for its trance parties which are held on the beach during the tourist season which is from October till April. 
  • Wednesday Flea Market : Anjuna is also famous for its Wednesday flea market where you can purchase products from all over India and from foreigners, ranging from clothes, fruits to jewelry and electronic devices. Every Wednesday, Anjuna hosts the famous flea market at the far south of the beach from morning till dusk. This is one of the original Hippie Markets in Goa and if you want to purchase souvenirs & handicrafts from all over India, then you should not miss this one.

Get Around:

Hire a scooty or bike as this is the best way to explore Goa. Petrol is available in one litre bottles at most of the stores in Goa. You can also hire a taxi but it will cost you a bomb. 

Some Tips:

  • Best time to visit Goa- November to February
  • While hiring a bike or a scooty, you may be asked to deposit some amount of money, photocopy of driving license and PAN Card original. For foreigners, don’t give your passport, instead give a photocopy if you are asked.
  • If you want to have some peaceful time at the beach and escape the hawkers, then sit at some good shack or cafe on the beach as hawkers don’t dare to enter these shacks. 
  • For party animals, there are two night clubs in Anjuna where you can let your hair down – Paradiso and Nine Bar.
