Bardez Tourism & Travel Guide

Also known as Bardes, this is a region and taluka in the northern part of Goa and was initially discovered by Hindu immigrants who came and settled here from Magadha during Arya- Varta. This region is boundaried and locked by the north by the Chapora River. To the south of Bardez is the Mandovi river and to the east is the Mapusa River which originates over here. To the west of Bardez is of course the Arabian Sea. The word 'Bardez' simply means 'Bara Desh' or the big country. The legislative assembly of Goa is situated over here and the people of this place are known as Bardezcars. The local language is Konkani and the main attractions include the beaches of Baga, Calangute, Candolim, Sinquerium, Vagator village, Fort Aguada and a few more. This place is also the birth place of the famous Goan Saint Agnelo and thus a popular place for Christian visit too. The Goan and St. Xavier's Collegs and the College of Hotel Management are the main educational institutions over here. People come here in large number especially to explore the beaches and also to do shopping and gorge on some Goan influenced konkan delicacies.

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.

A small beach in North- Goa, this is a flat beach and perfect for swimming. It is not as popular or crowded compared to many other beaches of the state and especially northern Goa, but is still a favourite of many tourists. There are also water activity options available here but these are not that good compared to the ones at the Sinquerim Beach in the same region. This is often a beach which misses the eye when you are busy visiting the busier beaches of Baga, Calangute and such others.
