Baga Things to Do

  • Mackies Night Bazaar

    Having been to Anjuna Market twice, we thought we have a look at Mackies night bazaar. We knew that it was held every Saturday at 6pm onwards.Mackies Night Bazaar is a Goan market.So we went yesterday, no sign of anyone setting up for the market at 6pm. So we tried again at 7pm, no one. It was not open. So ask around before you go.

  • See a different side to Baga

    Get away from the beach and take a walk by the river. It is very green and lush around the river. It is fairly pleasant and quiet. Very different from the busy beach.

Baga Restaurants

  • Naan bread to die for

    Lovely little restaurant On the Baga Beach Road.The restaurant is in a great position for people watching, being on the corner the traffic can be.... well er interesing. The food was brilliant all freshly cooked. The best cheese and garlic naans ever but it was all good.

  • A taste of England

    We have been away from England for 10 months now, so we could not resist going here.It is in the same place as Cocktail and Dreams. The food is very English. Tea and Scones with Jam and Butter. Ploughman's lunch (Salad, Cheese, Home made pork pie, Pickled Onion, Baguette and an Apple). The copule who run are very friendly and helpful. Scone, Jam...

  • Great food and very relaxed

    Lila's cafe serves great breakfast and lunches by the river. With a thatched roof and wicker chairs it is a great place for a lazy breakfast. It is run by a German couple and this is reflected in the menu. Also as it is by the river it is very peaceful. Fresh Bread with home made liver pate.Expresso is also good.

  • Alternative to the nightclubs

    If you past Tito's and Mambo's on Tito's road and head down to the beach, you will find several beach shacks. They have music, okay the mixing isn't quite as good as it is in the nightclubs. But you will still have a good time and there is no charge to get in and the drinks are not overpriced.The staff are friendly and will make sure that you are...

Baga Warnings and Dangers

  • traceyspacey's Profile Photo

    by traceyspacey Written Nov 25, 2007

    We have come across Time Share touts in both Candolim and Baga. One tout in Candolim even swore at us as we kept saying no.

    The easiest way for them to go away is to simply say 'No time share, Thanks'. It does the trick and they don't chase you done the road.

    You will easily recognise the touts. They will approach you on a bike ask if you speak English with a card in their hand. They always wear shirts of the company that they work for.
