    Most happening beach in Goa
    Best for beach party & to enjoy nightlife. Many pubs & shacks are there, they have indoor & outdoor sitting arrangements. Early morning it’s so peaceful & calm, during day time it’s very crowded & in the evening its perfect for party. Local transportation & Parking available. Bath after sunset isn’t allowed.

    Baga Beach - Fun
    I visited Goa with my friends and we stayed at a hotel very near to Baga beach. This beach attracts hordes of tourists, and as we arrived, we immediately felt the electrifying atmosphere in the air. Baga Beach offers the perfect balance of relaxation and entertainment, with its golden sands and perfectly safe swimming waters. We indulged in thrilling water sports during the day, from parasailing to jet-skiing. The rates are negotiable so you have to bargain. As the sun set, the beach transformed into a hub of nightlife. Lined with charming shacks, it was the ideal spot to savor delicious seafood and dance the night away. Baga Beach truly captures the essence of Goa's vibrant spirit.

    We went to baga beach as they have shacks there and at candolim where we are based they are in the process of reconstructing the shacks after the monsoon. We sat and ate at Emmanuel's. Food is excellent. I recommend the aloo muttar...but everything we ate over two days was fantastic. The only thing that worries me is the amount of plastic and rubbish on the beach. I don't know if the Indians are knowledgeable about the dangers of plastic 🤷,but a few dustbins wouldn't go amiss.. .I did see some attempts to clean up as the sun began to set . Overall a lovely beach..

    Visit to Baga beach.
    Went to Baga Beach in the afternoon. It was crowded with tourist. Quite a few shops are there where one can enjoy the sunset with a bottle of bear. When I was there, a group of fisherman had come with their fresh catch. If one desires, he/she can buy some and get it cooked at the shops on the beach.

    Dirty overprices place not for EU tourists
    Definitely not for foreignEU tourists. The place full of local Indian crowd, the beach dirty, only one night club with nice dance vibe. Average food in beach bars. Low quality hotels overpriced as of Indian conditions, no real attractions closeby. Some pluses: free beds offered by beach bars, locals very friendly and helpful, Fancy sunsets over the ocran

    A good place to spend some time.
    If you have children then you have to keep an eye out for cow's and dog's. They don't seem to intentionally hurt people but they are animals. Crowded, obviously. You can have drinks in the beach hotels. and the facility for dress change is available out side the main gate, a bit over priced. There are a lots of shops near by for casual purchases.

    An evening at Baga Beach
    To enjoy Baga Beach in Goa with friends, you should block your evening. Baga Beach has the vibe of loud music (Hindi and Punjabi mostly), drinks and relaxation. I went there in two evenings to enjoy the shack and relax when the table was close to the water. The breeze was amazing and the food was best. I was with one of my friends who had never been to Goa before, however, this was my 5th time going to Goa. I convinced my friend to go and relax rather than ticking all the famous spots. Hence, I was aware that the best location to relax (drinks and food) and good vibe is Baga Beach. I recently got interested in staying in hostels so I booked 2 beds in a 4-bed room in a hostel near Candolim. We reached the hostel around 2 PM, dropped our bags and then left to rent a Scooty. We straight headed towards Baga Beach and enjoyed the sunset first. Just before it got dark, we decided to sit in front of the shack and spent 5-6 hrs there. We ordered starter food and drinks, and after some time ordered Hookah as well. We both are not addicted to drink and smoking, but Socially and especially Baga Beach at Goa was giving us the vibe to do so. Small vendors coming by, and tourist people were crossing in front of us all the time which made me a little uncomfortable. However, all the shacks were the same so it was normal and people who were walking were also normal including some kids. The name of the shack was something "Paradise", not so classy but the service of food and drinks was good. If you went there and could not find a spot to sit, you can give a try to them. That's all in the blog if you have any questions or looking for some suggestions. I am happy to answer.

    The unforgettable party with music and nature
    The place was much more fun than we had expected. The blue ocean and sandy beach illuminated by the sun sparkled crystal and gold. The evenings are full of beach parties with loud music and so much to explore with every kind of people but still be careful of cows and dogs while enjoying the beach parties and companies of your friend. hoping to do this again sometime soon. I recommend you visit.

    Amazing experience
    Amazing spot for water sports. We had a world of fun visiting Baga beach. there were many agents, you can go ahead and book with anyone of them. Ensure you take all the rides, everything was awesome. We were apprehensive considering the heat, but a boat load of sunscreen and few initial dips in the sea helped us have a wonderful time. one important point to note, for each ride there is an extra option, this will cost you more. But it kind of enhances your experience, so it is totally worth it. eg: if you go para sailing, then you can take an option for more time flying and to get dipped in the sea.

The atmosphere at Baga beach is awesome at night but during our visit in October it was quite hot in the day time so I recommend that either to visit here from December to feb to get the best weather…water rides available at Baga beach also.

"Revisiting Goa After 12 Years: A Journey Beyond Words"

In 2023, I embarked on a journey back to Goa, accompanied by dear friends who shared in the memories of our past adventures. As we stepped onto the sun-kissed shores, a flood of emotions washed over us, leaving us speechless in the face of the beauty and nostalgia that surrounded us.

With each familiar sight and sound, memories of our past visits came rushing back, weaving a tapestry of laughter, joy, and shared experiences. From the bustling streets of Panaji to the tranquil beaches of Palolem, every corner of Goa held a piece of our hearts, reminding us of the bonds that had been forged over the years.

As we roamed the streets hand in hand, exploring hidden alleyways and savoring local delicacies, we found ourselves transported back in time, reliving the moments that had shaped us and strengthened our friendship. With each passing day, our connection deepened, fueled by the magic of Goa and the shared sense of adventure that bound us together.

Words proved inadequate to capture the depth of our emotions as we watched the sun set over the Arabian Sea, painting the sky with hues of gold and pink. In that moment, surrounded by the beauty of Goa and the warmth of friendship, we knew that some experiences were simply too profound to be expressed in words alone.

As we bid farewell to Goa once again, our hearts heavy with the weight of impending goodbyes, we carried with us the memories of our time together, knowing that they would sustain us until we met again. For in the embrace of Goa, we had found not only a destination but a sanctuary—a place where time stood still and the bonds of friendship were everlasting.

Stayed at the lovely Colonia Santa Maria,which is on the best part of Baga Beach,in my opinion.Great beach shacks in this area,our favourites being,Bongo,Bobby's and Boscos.All friendly and serve great food and drinks at competitive prices.The beach is beautiful with powder like sand and not too crowded in this area.The sea is lovely and warm,with good sized waves at times,great fun.Theres fruit sellers serving fresh sliced fruit at great prices,always with a smile and good banter.Theres a few beach hawkers,selling an array of goods,always with a smile,remember to barter,it's a must.But if your not interested,a simple no thank you,is all it takes.Loved our beach days and the weather was fabulous,not a cloud in sight and 36° every day.
