Anjuna Beach, North Goa
Anjuna beach is located about 18kms from Panaji and is situated in Bardez taluka. This is part of a 30 km stretch of beach coastline along the west coast of Goa by the Arabian sea. The village of Anjuna is a five square mile enclosure nestling between the Arabian Sea and the hill overlooking the beach. The beach is known for its swaying palms, soft sands and natural beauty. It has an unusual rocky formation overlying a cove of white sand and black rock that juts into the sea.
This beach was once the home of the young, wild, and eccentric – the hippies. Only traces of them are left, but their legacy continues. Even today the flea market at the beach popularized by the hippies exists. People from all over the country, from other beaches in North Goa and the world visit the shacks here to listen to psychedelic music.
