Lying in the lap of a rocky, wooded headland, at a distance of 7 km from Margao, Baga is an exclusive beach destination for all ages. Nestling on the northern side of the long stretch of sands of Calangute Beach, on the lap of the lush Baga-Anjuna Hill, the Baga Beach in Goa is a curious pot of virgin sands and a need for leisure, far from the cacophony of life. So what are your waiting for? Promise your heart that you will listen to it and we promise you a memorable beach holiday, like one you have never experienced before.

What All You Can See

If you are high on adrenaline, you should not invest another second in planning a holiday trip to the famous Baga Beach. The long stretch of Anjuna-Calangute-Baga is a nice place to walk during dusk and dawn. It's an endless line of shops, restaurants and hotels that add colours to the silvery sands. Remember to behold the beach during sunrise with the thickly forested Baga-Anjuna Hill at the backdrop. Believe us, it's mindblowing! The beach is a vaddo of faith where Goans hem in during May to take the sea cure. The sea water during this phase is believed to cure many ailments of the human body.

Walk up the Baga Hilll to the Bag Retreat House, established and dedicated to St. Francis Xavier in 1953. The path up the hill is marked with the stations of the cross at regular intervals. This solitary path is a favoured trek route among the holidayers and is often promoted as a leisure activity by Goa Tourism during the festive season. The path continues past the retreat house to the other side of the hill, till it comes out at the bustling Flea Market on South Anjuna Beach. A tour through the greens amidst spectacular views enchants the adventurous and the indolent equally.

Indulge into a number of watersports like snorkelling, kayaking, water-skiing, sailing, wind-surfing and fishing to relax in the afternoons. Baga is considered a reasonably safe place to swim, though large waves have been known to drag swimmers out to sea. It is always advisable to swim in the designated areas, where lifeguards are available. This lifeguard facility is an important measure promoted by Goa Tourism. Tourists can also contact a number of water-sport operators on the beach and can go for exhilarating dolphin spotting trips on nearby islands.

The southern end of this long stretch of pristine sands is a crowd one and one can find Goa Tourism hotels stand stately over the noisiest part of Baga Beach. However, those planning a longer vacation in Goa should look out for houses that are to be let out. Easy access to this famous beach is guaranteed both from Dabolim Airport, situated at a distance of 48 km from the town centre and Panjim, the state capital, nestling at a distance of 16 km. If you are planning to come from Panaji, cross the Mandovi Bridge and drive on Chogm Road past Porvorim to reach Baga. However, you can also continue to Mapusa and turn left to reach Baga town.
