Baga 1/undefined by Tripoto

Baga

This is a place which was first discovered by the hippies and is situated in the Northern part of Goa. This is a beach known to be one of the most popular in Goa and is surrounded by the Calangute Beach on one side and the Anjuna Beach on the other side. The Baga Beach starts from where the Calangute Beach ends though the place cannot be exactly pin pointed. This is also a shoppers paradise with all sorts of flea markets and the fresh seafood is wow over here. Also, you can enjoy a number of water sports and activities in this beach area such as jet skiing, para sailing, surfing and others. The people around here are always in a festive mood and dance and music are a major part of their culture here. They have carnivals during christmas and New Year too. Also, the people here are very religious and the main religion followed here is Christianity. The lifestyle here is a blend of Indian and Portuguese to a large extent. This is a stunning evidence of the fact that Goa was under the rule of Portuguese colonies till even a decades ago before it was taken over by the Indian Government.

We reached Madgaon in the morning, boarded a bus and reached Baga. Rented a scooty for 300 rupees a day. They charged 500 advance and asked for an original ID card from each one of us. We preferred to handover our voter ID cards and it was not required during the trip. One thing to keep in mind is traffic police in Goa sometimes becomes very active and checks for Driving License and Helmets at every corner.From there we reached our room. The owner helped us to navigate to his home. Have a look at few photos. The area was very close to Baga-Calangute main road, may be approximately 100-200 meter from the road. Baga-Calangute main road is a very crowded stretch of road with restaurants, shops and what-not.Please ignore the quality of photos. Back then this is what we could afford from our pocket money.

The last three days had been very hectic. We wanted to relax and spend time at the Baga beach itself.Finally we went to Britto's for our lunch. It's a nice place to spend time and have some good food. Do try baked crabs, its amazingly delicious. We had a nice walk around the streets of Baga-Calangute road and collected some souvenirs.That's it. We wanted to go to cruise Casino's near Dona Paula but couldn't make it. Will cover next time we visit Goa. Overall it was a good experience and I wish to visit again.
