North Goa

Heading north from Panaji along the coast, there is almost a steady string of beaches. To get to the extreme north you have to pass three rivers. Two of them, Chapora and Arondem, have to be crossed by ferry. Starting from the Aguada Peninsula, the white-sand beach goes for 7km ending at Calangute and Baga, the most developed beaches in Goa. These beaches were famous for the Goa hippies. Now you will mainly see young travelers, families, package tourist, day-trippers, Indian families, and vendors selling their wares. The “travelers” scene has moved north to Anjuna, Vagator, and Chapora.
