Baga Beach

 

Baga Beach (North Goa)


A visit to Baga beach is highly recommended.

Baga beach
is located on the boundary of Calangute Village and is around 14kms from Panaji and 8 Kms from Mapusa. It is also close to Anjuna beach. The beach at Baga is around 1.5km long and offers pristine, fine white sand and a real local feel with many traditional huts still used by the local fishing population. It is also one of the widest beaches in Goa and provides its visitors with an increased sense of privacy.

Most visitors arrive at Baga beach via rail; taking the train to Thivim and from there, a short taxi ride to the beach. Access by air is also popular, with the nearest airport, Dabolim, around 55km from Baga and from there, a taxi to the beach costing around 800 rupees.

This is something that many of the more popular beaches in Goa lack, and consequently, Baga beach has been widely regarded as an escape from the nearby, popular Calangute beach. Baga is also very family friendly and features a river and creek just a short distance away. This provides tourists the opportunity to relax in still and safe waters.

Baga beach is very well known for its water sports; one of the primary attractions of the beach for tourists. Everything from jet skiing to parasailing, wakeboarding, windsurfing and kite surfing is offered, along with almost every other type of activity imaginable. Diving expeditions, boat trips to nearby islands and the ever popular dolphin watching excursions to observe the large pods of dolphins which often congregate about 1km out to sea are also in high demand from visitors to the beach. It is therefore highly advisable to pre-book any trip early in the morning upon your arrival to avoid disappointment.

As with all other beaches in Goa, there are also markets on the beach almost every day of the week, offering everything from hot snacks to souvenirs. Visitors indulging in some casual retail therapy are then able to relax in one of the many hammocks dotted along the shoreline and can enjoy the many local cocktails on offer.

There are a vast number of accomodation options at Baga Beach; For Budget Travellers Julma Resort is one of the best option. boutique hotels such as the Casa Baga situated in close proximity to cheaper guest houses and beach huts, and with prices ranging from 600 rupees all the way to 9000 rupees per night. A firm favourite among tourists for many years has been the Alidia Beach Cottages, offering basic but extremely comfortable beach huts for around 700 rupees per night, and providing spectacular views of the coast and sunset. However, due to the popularity of the Baga beach huts it is always advisable for visitors to book well in advance of their planned stay.

Baga beach offers precisely what many tourists are seeking in Goa; a chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of the more popular beaches in the area whilst also providing a wealth of water sports and attractions.
