Vagator Beach is divided in to two Beaches one is Big Vagator or North Vagator beach and the next is the little Vagator or the Ozram Beach. 

There are a number of bars playing dance and trance music, and that too mostly during the tourist season, some of them are Nine Bar, Hill top, Primrose etc. These bars play a different type of Trance and psychedelic music from different DJ's around the world. 

One of the most peaceful in Goa where you can enjoy your drinks silently. Less crowded than Baga which gives a lot more peace.
