Baga Beach

Location : 10-km West Of Mapusa, North Goa
Main Attraction : Calangute Beach
Best Time To Visit: December To February

The Baga Beach Goa lies 10 km west of Mapusa and is an extension of Calangute. It is smaller than the Calangute and Colva beaches lying on either side of it, and is the perfect getaway for those looking for a little bit of peace and quiet after the activity of the other two beaches.

Baga Beach - GoaBaga is a fishing beach with brown sand that sees a lot of international tourists sun-bathing in its golden sun, as a grove pof palms gently sways in the wind. The Baga River flows along one side of it offering a good alternative for children and those who are not too confident about swimming in the sea. On one of the far ends, lies a group of black rocks against which the sea crashes in dramatic explosions of spray.

Tourist Attractions of Baga Beach
Quaintly located near Arabian sea, Baga beach is an idyllic destination for beach lovers. Relax your body while enjoying sun bath. Add some more fun in your trip by indulging yourself in swimming on the azure blue water. The beach also offers an opportunity for angling. Visitors can catch colorful fishes with the help of fishing rod.

Gourmet Delight
Baga has arguably the best range of restaurants in Goa, from standard beach shacks to swish pizzerias and terrace cafes serving real espresso coffee. Because of the stiff competition, prices are generally reasonable and the quality of cooking high. For a splurge, splash out on a candlelit dinner at J & A's Riverside Trattoria, or a traditional Goan meal at the eccentric Casa Portuguesa.

Thanks to the droves of predominantly British package tourists who stay here, Baga's nightlife is the liveliest in the area. Most of the travellers end up at Tito's, which has the only dance floor and hefty sound system outside a big hotel for miles. Women are allowed in for free; "unaccompanied" men and couples have to pay.

Beach Shacks at Baga Beach
The most interesting part of the Baga beach are Beach shacks. These are the small traditional Fisherman's huts which provides accommodation to the visitors. Living by the sea shore, close to mother nature will surely give you some life time memories to be cherished. The delicious food served in the shacks is cooked in a traditional style. Couples can enjoy a romantic candle night dinner at the beach side, under the star studded sky. Chilled ice beer is also served in the beach shacks.

Dolphins Spotting
Backwater crocodile and dolphin spotting down the Mandovi River to the Zuari River is a favorite pastime for the travelers at the Baga beach. The thickly forested banks of these rivers are rife with mangrove trees and inhabited by crocodiles in the swampy regions. Dolphins can be spotted at the mouth of the Mandovi River.

Shopping at Baga Beach Goa
Baga has developed more rapidly than any other region in Goa and the main road running through the village is lined with several bars, tandoori terraces and handicraft shops. The relatively newer Saturday flea market, is a huge success and an occasion of much that lasts well into the night, brightly lit up with lights and paraffin lamps. All kinds of odds and ends, handicrafts, jewellery and snacks stalls can be found here and a temporary stage is constructed for the visiting local musician. Baga's nightlife is the liveliest in Goa and is the perfect expression of the Goan and Western mix of culture.

Places to Stay
The rough-and-ready places dotted around the fishing village usually have space for accommodation. Reasonable budget houses and rooms for rent are also available on the quieter north side of the river.
