Located in Bardez, his fort rises above the Chapora River. This was a red laterite fort built by the Portuguese in place of an earlier Muslim structure in the 1th Century. It was then captured and again lost by a number of Hindu rulers before the Portuguese finally abandoned it in the year 1892. The main enemies of this fort were the Bahmani Sultans who were successful in capturing it and again later it was captured by the Marathas in the beginning of the 18th Cdentury. It was recaptured by the Portuguese to be taken back again by the Marathas. This battle went on for a long time after which the fort was absolutely deserted. At present, what we can see here are simply ruins of the fort and the heads of two tunnels. Regular buses from Anjuna and Mapusa can bring and take you back from here.
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.
Mainly known for the historical Chapora Fort, this is a popular beach which is about 10 kilometres from Mapusa. The other reason for the popularity of this beach is the fact that this is well accessible from other popular beaches such as Anjuna and Candolim too. There are opportunities for swimming, shopping and eating too but it is better not to spend the night here. This is because this beach area is a marked one for the people who are involved in drugs and there are other people who are involved in illegal activities during the night time as well.
Another name of the Vagator Beach, this is not a very known part of the Vagator Beach. The main attraction here apart from the beach itself is the 6ft tall idol of Lord Shiva with a backdrop of greenery and of course the waters of the river. There are a number of shopping stalls but bargaining is a must here. The food stalls are decent too. The only drawback here is that there are at times a bad crowd especially in this beach and to get rid of their nuisance you can just go and approach the police who are present here all time at your service.
Ozran Beach Road
Also known as the Vagator Beach Road, this is along which the bus will take you to get down at the Vagator Beach. More peaceful than the other main beaches, this is also not a very popular one. You will however find a number of options for eating as well shopping here. The massuers here are very good at giving you some relaxation and you certainly need to be aware of some leachourous people who come here to disturb others. There are always policemen here to whom you can confide at anytime. Also, this is a flat beach and perfect for swimming. There is also a beautiful, black statue of Lord Shiva nearby and almost on the shores which makes it clear that there are Hindu influences too out here.
485/2 Vagator Beach Rd Chapora
The avenue along which you can find the rocky shores of the Vagator Beach is known as the Vagator Beach Road. A less crowded and a less popular beach, Vagator is located in the northernmost tip of Goa along with a village of the same name. Here you will also find a 6ft tall black statue of the Lord Shiva and this is an example of Shiva worship here. As you walk along the vagator Beach road you will come along a number of beach shacks and also a number of shopping options.
If you love to be a traveller and not a tourist, this is an awesome place for you. This is a place for the ones who want to tour each corner of Goa at a low budget and especially for the young gangs. They have dormitories for girls and boys separately and you can make a lot of new friends here. They organize regular parties and the food is also decent. From here you can also rent scooters at low costs and explore Goa and also not get tired at all.
Situated between the Morjim and the Anjuna Beach, this is a lovely 3- star resort overlooking the Vagator Beach. The resort is in the form of an old European Style villa with a lot of Portuguese influence and a traditional feel too. The first attraction is the view of the seas and the second is of course their open- air restaurant where they serve the best beverages, mocktails and exotic sea food preparations. Talking about the general stuffs such as rooms and service, those are good as well.
Some of the few reasons I gave myself when I thought that #befikre experiences will give me memorable and Adventurous Cheap Thrills! So far spending all of my semester vacations at a backpacker's hostel filled me with immeasurable positive vibes that I needed before I flew back home.Why Goa?Well, first of all, I had never been to Goa and always wanted to feel the sea waves in my hair and sand in my eyes, Vagator was always in my mind and yes I made it happen!
