Chapora Fort

For the best sunset views in the area, head to this beautiful old fort at Vagator Beach.

Reviewed By Khushbu M

If ur a Dil Chahta Hai fan, this fort is a must visit!!! U have to sit on d walls n click pics and relive those amazing moments from d movie that made Goa cool for us. Since we were staying in Vagator,this fort was a ten minute journey for us. It's crowded,but it's so huge that ull find a wall for yourself . Parking is 20bucks for 2wheeler. D climb from parking to d fort is very steep and slippery. I slipped at least twice. Pls wear comfortable shoes. The sunset view from d top is amazing!!! U can just find a spot for urself n sit there for hours gazing at d waves and d melting sky. If ur thirsty, u get lime soda right inside d fort.

Anjuna Market

Reviewed By Dennis B

Anjuna Market is one of goa’s most popular flea markets, with a whole variety of sellers offering everything imaginable, you get a true sense of India with the smell of spices from the spice stalls as you pass by, each seller trying to encourage you to look at their wares, you will also find watering holes to buy foods& drink, but don’t expect luxury, these are very basic but if you do want a little more up market, wind your way through the market, towards the beach where you will find a really nice bar and restaurant.
The market can be reached by taxi or you can get a water taxi from along the beach, which we did as their was one right by our hotel, so worth asking in advance, the return trip cost around £10 Per person from Calangute Beach.
Warning: watch out for the scammers, they will approach you very fast and grab your ear, which happened to me, my first thought was that I had something in or on my ear and he was just getting it off, he then says don’t move and started to take grim out of your ear, which I could not believe, he then asked me to go to his shop which I refused, this was only to get me out of the crowd, he then tried to get £40 out of me for doing his scam I refused, it turns out that this is a known scam and they have this waxy brown stuff on there person and they use slight of hand very clever.
So if you get approached walk on don’t be dragged in.
That said great place to visit and grab a bargain.

You can not afford to miss this event specially when you have a chance of experiencing David guetta, Dimitri Vegas and Martin on stage. The best event of the year I should say. No words to describe the adrenaline rush and enjoyment!

Baga has like Calangute become a popular tourist destination so the beach has become very busy especially at weekends and public holidays.lots of shacks and water sports.As you walk along towards Calangute it becomes quieter between the two Beaches.On a Wednesday it’s possible to take a boat trip to Anjuna market.You can crossto the opposite side of the creek via the Baga bridge or there are some good restaurants beside the Baga river.Plenty of lifeguards stationed or patrolling the beach so a safe environment.Very popular with domestic tourists.

Ashwem Beach

Reviewed By DAVID J

This beach is less crowded. There are not many shacks and hawkers. There are no water sports. If you are looking for a calm and tranquil atmosphere, this beach is one of the best in north Goa.
This beach is best for people travelling solo or looking for a calm and peaceful environment.
Parking is free. Beach-beds are available for Rs.200. The shacks, as usual, are over-priced.
Of all the Beaches in North Goa, my top two picks are Ashwem and Morjim Beaches.

This Church has really got good view around it. Its very quiet place as it remains open between 07:00 and 08:30 only. So reach during that period. Otherwise you will find it close as shown in picture also.

Surf Wala - Day Surfing

The Surf Wala surf school was established on Arambol Beach, North Goa, in 2010 with a simple desire in mind; to share our passion for Surfing with anyone, locals and visitors alike, who might wish to join the growing community of surfers here. Our little tribe of board riders has steadily increased as news has spread that it is, in fact, possible to surf in Goa. Surf Wala exists in order to continue to encourage that message, to provide surf board hire, surf lessons, equipment and advice to anyone who feels enticed to begin Surfing in Goa, and most of all to provide a base for these people to come together. We believe that the special union a person develops with the ocean when they surf lays the foundation for a holistic manner of living which encourages physical and spiritual well-being, increased environmental and social awareness, as well as a pure primal joy in feeling the rush of riding a wave. It is this experience which draws us back day after day. “To learn patience, to feel awe, and to know exhilaration in the element of which we are all largely composed is a repeatedly enthralling experience we think everybody should have the opportunity to try.”
