Top Places To Visit 10 Spots
Anjuna is firstly the name of a village and is one of the places where the earliest Hindus came and settled down. There is also the church of St. Micheal over here which is another major attraction besides the flea market of Anjuna. Coming to the beach of Anjuna, this is not a very crowded beach but is still quite a popular one. The crowd is of mostly foreigners and so you can expect a different surrounding than you find in other beaches or the ones in Mumbai or South India. You can enjoy swimming as well as water sports here and it is also a perfect place for picnics and get togethers.
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.
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.
