Anjuna Beach

Goa, India

The Basics

Anjuna was once the heart of hippie life in Goa. Later this beach morphed into ground-zero for the electronic music party scene that prevailed in the state, and now it's more of a relaxed beach destination. Anjuna is also well-known for its Wednesday flea market, where Indian and international vendors sell festival fashion, hash pipes, and more. Visit Anjuna as part of a private tour of Goa attractions, including Fort Aguada and other area beaches.

How to Get There

Anjuna is situated in North Goa, a little more than an hour’s drive from Goa International Airport near Vasco de Gama, and 45 minutes from the capital city, Panaji. Visitors who are not traveling as part of an organized tour will need a car or motorbike, as public transportation is time-consuming and unreliable, and taxis are overpriced. There are regular direct flights from most major Indian cities to Goa throughout the year.

When to Get There

The most popular time to visit Anjuna is Wednesday mornings, when the weekly Flea Market takes place. It’s held every week from the beginning of October through the end of May. Evenings are also popular, especially during the winter months, when beach shack restaurants (notably Curlies and Shiva Valley) hold regular live electronic music events that sometimes last well into the night.
