Vagator Beach Guide

Vagator beach has go to be one of the most interesting beaches in Goa with loads of wierd and wonderfeul things going on all the time.

Although much quieter than it's big sister Anjuna , Vagator has a great party/chilled out repuation and a vibe to match. It may not be the most scenic of all the beaches in Goa, (some would disagree), it is certainly a fantastic place to stay even if just for a few days or even hours!

One of the most popular past times here apart from the usual sunbathing and drinking is the food.

The food here is very famous. You can buy fish striaght from the fishermen, take it to a restaraunt and have cooked for you, it's a pretty cool thing to do. Or even better catch the fish your slef on an organised fishing trip, a bargin and worth every penny here at Vagator beach.

Where to stay

If your looking for posh accomodation you will be lucky to find it here. Your best bet would be to head up to Calungute and Baga for that. If your happy paying pennies for accomadation and don't mind staying in very basic accommodation, you will be fine.

There are a few guest houses and cottages along the beach that always have space but they do get rather full during the peak season, especially around Christmas and New year.

Getting there and away

The capital of Goa, Panaji, is only 24Km from Vagator so a taxi won't cost too much. Alternately you can get a train to Karmali which is the nearest railway station and then a rickshaw from there.

Mapusa is the closest major town (9 km) and you can find loads of buses that go to Vagator form here.
