Anjuna

Anjuna is one of the most popular beaches in North Goa, located between Baga and Ozran beach. Anjuna is 20.9 kilometers from Panaji, Goa’s state capital via the NH 66. This is a long and sandy beach with a few rocky outcrops. You will find many beach shacks, coffee shops, and bars. Umbrellas and recliners are right on the beach. Anjuna used to be a hippie paradise once, and even now, there are many foreigners on the beach. Anjuna is also famous for its nightlife and the Wednesday flea market.

World famous Anjuna Beach resort like many other beaches of the North Goa has gained its popularity thanks to the hippie movement, which was going strong in this part of Goa in 1970s. The Anjuna resort beach line is about a 1.5 km long, quite narrow in some places and is subjected to erosion. The southern part of the beach is covered with golden sand, while the northern part has lots of great flat rocks. These red-colored laterite rocks are the real jewels of Anjuna, as they are called by the local citizens. These rocks give the landscape a very much peculiar flavor. All of this beauty against the background of groves of coconut trees in the eastern part of the beach turns this fantastical place into the real Heaven.

Anjuna Beach is considered to be one of the most photogenic beaches in Goa. The place attracts the attention of photographic lenses due to the extraordinarily beautiful beach.

Today Anjuna develops as the modern resort, supporting liberal spirit inspired by the hippie culture that attracts informal persons from all over the world. They claim this is the place where Goa-trance music and famous outdoor parties appeared. They are the main reason of Anjuna beach popularity.
