Baga Beach
Top Travel & Tours Pvt. Ltd.



Baga BeachAdjoing the Calangute beach, Baga is basically its extension, a quite fishing village it also has an endless line of shops, restaurants and hotels. The palm groves and the Baga river lend it a soothing ambiance and enhance its scenic beauty. The Retreat House perched on a hill and the lack of local tourist buses all have contributed to its unique charm. Popular as a base for water sports and fishing, it attracts a large number of visitors to its shores. The lively Saturday night market here is much like the Wednesday flea market at Anjuna, only prettier under the night sky and lit up with lamps.

Attractions
Baga has a wide range of restaurants, from standard beach shacks to swish pizzerias and terrace cafes serving foamy espresso coffee. The Baga Retreat House is a short walk up the hill, established and dedicated to St. Francis in 1953 it is rich in historical symbolism and worth a visit. The village of Arpora, spread across the hillock nearby is where Ingo's night market is organised every Saturday. Here stalls offer all kinds of goodies and treats, clothes, trinkets, exotic delicacies, funky haircuts, tarot reading, palmistry, wood carvings and live bands who lend the market a carnival like atmosphere. Mackie's is another Saturday night bazaar and Arpora also has one of Goa's two go-karting tracks.

Entertainment
Baga is home to some of Goa's most popular night spots, including Tito's and Cafe Mambo. To ride around and explore the luch Goan countryside one can easily rent a motorcycle or scooter in Panaji and Mapusa. Parasailing, water skiing and wind surfing are also very popular at Baga. Water sports usually start in the afternoon when the wind is blowing in the right direction and they go on till sunset. Crocodile and dolphin spotting down the Mandovi and the Zuari rivers is another popular pastime for tourists. The banks of these rivers are thickly forested with mangrove trees. Crocodiles inhabit the swamps in this area. At the open sea at the mouth of the Mandovi River, dolphins can be spotted.
