When it comes to planning of Goa Trip, name of Anjuna Beach comes in the list somewhere and there are different perceptions about this beach in northern part of Goa. While we were there in Goa during Monsoons, we also planned to visit it and this Photo Journey shares some of the experiences.
Anjuna is basically a village in Goa having some historical values associated. Anjuna Beach is considered very famous for its trance parties but all this happens during the tourist season & not in Monsons. This beach attracts tourists from different parts of the world. But during monsoons, it was almost empty and there was hardly anything open if we wanted to have food or drinks. Anjuna beach also hosts the famous flea market, which happens on every Wednesday, wherein you can purchase many things...
These photographs show the emptiness of Anjuna Beach during monsoons. It was early morning when we reaches the beach. Very few people were roaming around the beach and after 9am, people started disappearing and some maintenance work started happening in surrounding restaurants. Some of the places looked pretty cool from their colorful & weird exteriors.
Anjuna beach attarcts backpackers, midrange tourists and some specific set of tourists come to Anjuna beach for a dose of hippie-chic.. Anjuna beach remains filled with a weird and wonderful..The village itself is certainly a bit ragged around the edges these days, but Anjuna remains a favorite of long-stayers and first-timers as well.
Anjuna is spread out over a wide area, its most northerly point being the main Starco crossroads, where most buses stop and around which many eating options are dotted, and its southernmost point is the flea market site... Most accommodation and other useful services are sppread along the beach... During monsoons, Anjuna seemed to be very boring and after a while we thought of moving towards Baga Beach and have some food there. We had heard a lot about Brittos on Baga Beach.
During the monsoons we found Anjuna beach quite boring and then started driving towards Baga Beach. We took countryside route and it was great to drive through these beautiful structures, villages & towns.
