Best things to do in Anjuna and sightseeing in Anjuna

This is a village in the northern part of Goa and one of the 12 villages where thr earliest Hindus came and settled down from Aryavarta many centuries ago. This village is one of the most popular villages of Goa and also a very good place for shopping here. Among all the small attractions here, the St. Micheal's Church and the Anjuna Fort are the most popular apart from the Anjuna Beach. The beach is not as crowded as the Baga or other such beaches but the crowd here is quite decent. Most of the people you see here are non- Indians and this is what makes the environment quite different. Also, the art of bargaining is necessary when you want to do shopping over here. There are also a number of food shacks around the beach.

Curlies Beach Shack - Anjuna

One of the most popular and one of the best beach shacks in Goa, the Curlies Beach Shack is located near the flea market at the Anjuna Beach. People love to come here again and again and their best point is of course the ambience out here. They serve you with delicacies and some real good beverages and drinks. Another reason for the popularity of this place is that that this place hosts some of the best parties you will get to enjoy in Goa. This includes trance parties and electro parties which you hardly find so good in other places.

Anjuna Flea Market - Anjuna

Shopping is an important part of your trip to Goa equally as the beaches are. The flea market or the Wednesday Market of Goa in the Anjuna region is one of the best souvenir markets here. Earlier here would only be found hippies smoking jumbo joints and trying to convince people to buy their stuffs and services which would in turn earn them money to help them during the rest of their stay.At present there is a lot more you will find here. Starting from Kashmiri and Tibetian clothes and show pieces to Gujarati tribal women selling t- shirts and home decor items and other tribal girls from Mumbai and Karnataka selling traditional stuff too. The remaining shops belong to backpackers from Europe and Russia and the others to the hippies. They mostly sell services such as massages, piercings, tattoo making and others.
Being their on a Wednesday meant heading out to the Anjuna flea market, taking a leisurely stroll around, bargaining and ending up not buying anything, and then heading out for a walk on the beach. The overtly perfumed flavored teas they sell might seem fake, but the fun was real. Shopping: Cashewnuts, Feni, Goan sausages, Bebinca (now that it is commercially available, I picked up a Costa’s) are some of the things one must bring back. You could also pick up locally grown spices, tees and souvenirs that would remind you of happy times spent in Goa.

This is a good place to find great bargains as long as you haggle...even if you do not want to buy anything just go there for a quick browse, and a good sighting of the faithful hippies playing music, minding their own business and gazing ocean wards.

The flea market at Anjuna beach is a shopping experience that should not be missed. Occupying the south of Anjuna beach, the market is held every Wednesday starting from 11 am catering to all the needs of Shopaholics. From clothing items to jewelry to souvenirs you just name it. It's all on offer. The best part is the great deals that the skilled haggling shoppers get. What started as an enterprise by hippies to sell their native products to garner enough money to buy a ticket home has now turned into a commercial venture. The vendors at the present date are both expats and natives seen belonging to a diverse section of India, some even coming from neighboring countries like Nepal, Bhutan and Bangladesh trying to sell the tourists the essence of their native lands. It takes hours for tourists to venture this flea market. The numerous restaurants and shacks on the beach providing a relaxing spot as well as enticing the tourists gastronomically further make the shopping experience delightful.

Curlie's - Anjuna

This is one of the best and most favourite beach shacks of the Anjuna area as well as the whole Goa. They sell some of the best food and drinks and that too at very low prices. The other good part here is the ambience and the other advantage is that they host some of the best parties in town including trance and electro parties.
Curlies is a small stretch of a beach with 3-4 restaurants/shacks. Although its charm seems to have faded over the years, being here nonetheless, gives one a feeling of serenity and peace. A good place to have dinner and end the day. However, its accessibility is an issue. The road leading to it is in shambles and you will need to drive carefully. If you plan on drinking, make sure you have a designated driver.

SPLAT - Anjuna

This is a game center very close to the Anjuna Beach in the village of Anjuna in Goa. Here you get to splash others with paintballs and hit them as much as you like. This fun arena is fit for all age groups except for infants. This is because they might get hurt. This experience is nothing short of a party on the beach stands of Goa.
A day at Splat – Oxford’s Paintball Arena is bound to get your adrenaline pumping. Where else can civilians dress for combat in camouflage suits, face masks, gloves and chest guards as pellets slice through the air and the ground explodes (yes, with colourful goo). It’s a thrill hard to resist. Splat is a natural open-air arena with tree trunks, wooden stacks, old tyres, sacks and recent wooden and sand bunkers, which create the perfect network to dodge and dart in a chaotic face off. The arena is opened from November to the onset of the monsoons, and includes an age restriction of 16 and above to participate in the game.
