Anjuna Things to Do

  • The flea market.

    The flea market is a wonderful place to buy different kind of things. You can find all kind of different things to buy and there is no limit how much you can bargain. It is up to the seller, if he wants to sell or not. A good salesman doesnt sell if he doesnt make some money on the deal. The typical things I bought was t-shirts and things made in...

  • Anjuna Wednesday Market

    This weekly event has rightfully earned its good reputation. Markets abound in India, but this is a special one. Sprawling between the village houses and the open fields, under a canopy of coconut palms, set against the background of the sea with a sailing boat in the distance, decorated here and there by a whitwashed Portugese church, this is the...

  • Anjuna Beach: Beautiful and not...

    In Anjuna we found a long strip of beautiful sandy beach with coconut palms. As we descended we were welcome by two cows lying lazily on the beach, undisturbed by all the tourists. There were many tourists on Anjuna beach, but most of them were sipping their drinks in beach cafes and bars, built on stilts overlooking the sea, and the sandy beach...

    After a long stroll in the Anjuna Wednesday Market, making our way among colorful stalls and almost equally colorful tourists, we finally started to feel tired, in need of a nice place to sit down and relax. Then we heard the music: Joe Cocker's songs, live, coming out of a large wooden hut, which bore the sign: "Sea Breeze". Inside we found a...

    We have been to Anjuna twice now and we always go to the shore bar.It's a great place to relax in the comfy deck chairs, with the sand under your feet. Chilled music playing, occasional live music. Food is great and the expresso isn't bad either. Give it a go and see what you think. Expresso coffee, not a dish I know.

Anjuna Nightlife

  • Friendly and helpful

    We went for a walk along the road, turning right out of Starco's just to see what was there. We had a cold beer at Gleneagles. This is a British run place, ran by Craig and his partner. The beers are a little cheaper than from the beach bars. Craig helped us sort out our Indian sim card, something that we had a problem with on our previous trip to...

  • The best beach bar ever

    One of our reasons for coming back to Anjuna was the Shore bar.Bliss. Sitting in a comfortable deckchair with sand under your feet and a cold beer in your hand watching the amazing sunset. The food is pretty good too. They occasionally have live music.Large Kingfisher 60R. Stuffed calamari with salad and chips 250R. No dress code

Anjuna Transportation

  • Ride an Enfield

    Enfield is a legendary indian motorbike.This is the Enfield 500 that we´re renting while in Goa. The Enfield is at first a somewhat unnerving experience, with the gears on the right side (1. gear on top) and the brake on the left. But, as is the case with so many other things in india - after the initial shock, slowly, slowly, you get used to it....

    From Arambol to Anjuna and Vagator and backOne day I visited Anjuna and Vagator from Arambol. There are no direct buses so you must first go to Mapusa (pronounced Mapsa) and change buses there. I walked up to the main road in Arambol and waited for a bus. I didn’t have to wait long before it came. The bus ride to Mapusa took 45 minutes and it was...

  • Need the nearest ATM

    Despite what you may have heard, the nearest ATM is in Mapusa not Baga. You can get a bus from Anjuna to Mapusa for 7 Rupees (this was correct at the end of last year). There are 2 or 3 ATM's at Mapusa. Catch the bus from just outside Starco's.

  • You can get it at the market

    Every Wednesday (in the high season) there is a market at Anjuna Beach. Something that started as a small market where hippies selling bits and bobs so they could spend some more times in Goa, or to the flight home, has now become a major attraction for anyone visiting Goa.Tibetans, merchants from Kashmir, colorful Gujarati and Rajasthani women,...

Anjuna Warnings and Dangers

  • Peddlers who don't take no for an...

    Well, this is not really a "warning" tip, but I'd just like to share with you this nuisance on Anjuna beach: Peddlers are of all ages, from 6 to 96. One follows another, insisting on showing you every item in their merchandise, whether you want to look or not. One after the other, kids selling bead-necklaces and bracelets sat down on my reclining...

  • Vegetarians beware!

    Not just in Anjuna, the warning stays for all over Goa. A long stay in Goa for a vegetarian can be fairly frustrating. Keep eyes open for "Udupi" restaurants along the highway between Mapusa and Panjim. You are less hungry in Panjim than anywhere else.

  • Guest Houses at Anjuna

    Reserving rooms at some guest houses at Anjuna can sometimes be a challenge - I went up there a week before I arrived to be sure I got a clean and decent room. I found the Sunset Guest House and even paid a deposit to the owner. But when I arrived there was no room for me. I got my money back, but then I had to find some other place as I wanted to...

    Favorite thing: You might have heard from people or the guidebooks that the nearest ATM is Baga. It is not true. From Anjuna cross roads you can catch a bus to Mapusa for 7R that has several ATMs around the municipal gardens, just past the bus station in Mapusa.

    Alternatively it there are ATM's in Calangute, but that is further away.
