Baga Beach, situated at a distance of approximately 10 km from Mapusa, is one of the most magnificent beaches of Goa. It is considered to be just an extension of the famous Calangute Beach, but is much less crowded than the latter. Infact, it has a number of secluded and peaceful nooks and corners, where one can just laze around and relax. Baga Beach falls on the west coast of Goa, along the mighty Arabian Sea.
The rock-strewn and wooded headland of the beach seems to be dipped in
an air of tranquility. Though a part of Calangute Beach, Baga boasts of
much more variety in its natural beauty. It is the pure and untouched
beauty of the beach that draws a large number of tourists, from India as
well as abroad. There is no accommodation problem also, as a gorgeous
retreat house is situated atop a nearby hill. Baga beach is especially
popular amongst the foreign tourists.
They love to indulge in the numerous water sports offered by the beach,
along with the fishing trips organized here. The restaurants that have
been set up here, said to be amongst the best in Goa, serve as an added
attraction. You will find every type of eating joint here, right from
the usual shacks found at every beach to bustling pizza corners to the
terrace cafes. Even the cuisine offered by them is quite varied. Baga
Beach is definitely a place worth visiting in Goa.
