Local boatmen can also organize a camp fire and dinner at Tsunami Island specially for your group/family at reasonable rates. They pick you up at 6.00pm. You go to the island have fun and party with your group/family, followed by the dinner. They get you back to the hotel by 11.pm
this place comes alive during peak season when after dark the crowds head towards the entertainment zone RED at kenilwaorth beach resort and spa.
but for a few buffs beach volleyball at night after the sun has set appeals a lot especially as the gates to the beach close at 8pm.
enthusiasts still throng the place for a night game when its cool before heading off to the party zones.

Ingos Saturday night market is a night out in itself. It is a vast colourful well lit outside market packed with stalls that sell everything from hand made crafts,clothes and spices etc.It has plenty for everyone and loads of places to eat and drink to the back drop of live bands and music. It starts about 5.30pm and goes on till after midnight.The atomsphere has got to be expirenced whilst in Goa.Because of the cool night air it is more bearable amongst the hustle haggle & bustle.
Macky's Bazaar on the Baga river, smaller then Ingo's Night Bazaar sadly shut down now. Macky's is a Goan run affair, good street music , dancing, drink, food ,the usual collection of handicraft, jewellery and clothing stalls. Starts about 6pm on Saturday nights
Dress Code: Hippie as you like [ ha ]
The beach shacks are apparently the place to go of a night time. Unfortunately when we were there at the end of the season (end of April) the shacks generally closed at sunset or when the last customers left. But the locals told us that the shacks are usually quite lively, playing music and serving food. Stringfellows on Candolim had a good atmosphere.
Looda's overlooking Anjuna Beach kicks off after the flea market starts to die down and is a great place to get a cold drink, some food and relax after a day trapsing around. The live music/bands here are great, with the sun setting in the background this is a perfect venue. One of our best and most surreal moments in Goa.
Dress Code: Anything goes
Don't miss the beach parties at Anjuna, Baga and Calangute beach if you like to dance meet new people and have fun. You get to meet a lot of new people from various origins and generally have a good time.
Fire dancers are also invited and food and alcohol is readliy available at these parties.

As the shadows grow longer, the cocktails grow stronger - the music grows louder, and the tourists turn red...- JessH / Oct. 2005
The beaches of Goa are dotted with small eateries & pub-like establishments, lovingly called Beach Shacks, that open the latest around lunch time and serve until the wee hours of the morning. Some offer snacks, some proper food, some only drinks.
But they all have one thing in common: you cannot beat the atmosphere in there!
It would take forever to list (and to visit!) all beach shacks along a certain stretch of beach, so I'll just mention "our" shack of the hotel we stayed in:
The Flying Dolphin Beach Bar is the "beach shack" of the Hotel Golden Eye in Calangute. As far as shack-standards go, its look & feel is upmarket - but not the prices! The high roof, seating areas, bar and stage were constructed only recently. Not too long ago, the Flying Dolphin was just a little shack amongst many others.
The small menu is mainly Greek food (ok for the price, but not fantastic), but you can also fill your tummy with cheese toasties, pasta, curry, fish & seafood, or simply with a yummy cocktail from their huge list! Every night it's either chart-music from a CD, live band playing golden oldies & hip new stuff, or special guest appearances.
One night we were treated to a Neil Diamond impersonator with a strong Indian accent... not something you hear every day... it was funny, but we had a blast! :-)
It's central, comfortable, cheap and it's friendly - what more do you want?! :-)
NOTE: The bar prepares their ice cubes, salads, fruit juices, etc. exclusively with bottled drinking water, so you don't have to worry about spending your holiday on the toilet...
Dress Code: Walk out of the water, across the beach and into the shack!
Goa's beaches are an incessant source of vibrancy. Restaurants/ Pubs/ Pool Bars are all scattered along the main shore-lines.
Great food (local, Mediterranean), wonderful music (Marley, Pink Floyd, Goa Trance), beautiful people (it's hard to find a nationality that's not present here in the world's pool-side party)... do you still need a reason?
So while Goa has plenty of discos and some legendary music establishments, the beaches still hold pride of place when it comes to living it up at night.
Dress Code: Come as you are :)
daily as the dusk descends on the palm fringed beaches of goa the night life comes alive.
hundreds of entertainers hit the nightspots to entertain the tourists who have flocked to goa!!!
the entertainers are a varied lot from singers musicians magicians solo acts group acts carnival groups.
ballad singers abound as night entertainment in many hot spots of goa.
some have professional djs doing the stuff like trance psychedellic usually to the accompaniment of a dancefloor where u can let ur hair down.
the whole atmosphere is ethereal and in the company of ur friends and loved ones request songs are belted out with amazing ease and skill.
this live entertainment continues till the better part of midnight and in some places till wee hours of morning.

the taj fort aguada has a very peculiar landmark. it its semicircular bastion jutting out into the sea.
recently the hotel has floodlit the beach to enhance the beauty of the surroundings as well as provide illumination to swimmers who venture late for a dip.
this lights up the beach at the starting point of calangute and at night it looks absolutely amazing.
lucky are the people who stay at fort aguada and watch the night time sea from the comfort of their sea facing rooms enjoying a sip of their favorite drink and time just seems to pass so slowly.
i would definitely not recommend swimmers to enter sea after dark. i would rather recommend a stroll around the ramparts and there are a few good restaurants along the calangute baga stretch at which you can unwind later on.

All over Christmas, the beach was one big party!
Fire jugglers, fireworks and bonfires lined the seashore. Choose the bar which is laying on antertainment at that particular time.
I was surprised that the bars were not more crowded with some many tourists - Indian and foreigners - we never had any problems getting a table for drinking or eating anywhere during the holidays.
If you're lucky enough, go to Anjuna Beach at night and you might find an all night party along the beach...
The expats living there will tell you what's happening. Also the open market on Wednesday is a good occasion to get to know what will happen at night.

In Palolem Beach, south of Goa, you can see a marvellous phenomenon at night. If you stare at the waves in the beach, you can see that they shine in blue-greenish colors. This is due to some microscopic tiny organism which have fluorescence and make the waters shine.
If you swimm at night there you will see your body all covered with tiny points of light. An unforgettable mystic experience!!!
Tasty Food,Good Music, Golden sand, snow white waves hitting the shore creating a melody of its own. Hooka to add to your pleasure !
