North Goa tends to be the crazy part of Goa. Lots of busy beaches with lots of tourists. You need to get a little out of the tourist areas of Baga and Anjuna, rent a scooter or a motorbike, and drive north until you reach Vagator. Suddenly you’re in paradise with some awesome beaches, with cows (!!), and great food and drinks!
Unlike the rest of the popular North Goa beaches, Vagator has no watersports, not many hawkers, and a very relaxed atmosphere. The water temperature is great (although that’s the same all over Goa), and you can just relax for the whole day. By far one of our favorite beaches in North Goa!
