Beaches in India
|| Anjuna Beach,. Goa
Anjuna Beach, Goa
18 kms from Panaji is a popular beach area adjacent to Chapora fort- it was
the haunt of the flower generation in the sixties - and is still popular with
the younger generation. In Anjuna there is magnificent Albuquerque mansion built
in 1920, flanked by octagonal towers and attractive Mangalore tiled-roof.
The Anjuna band plays for the beach party at night. Palm trees stand motionless
in the warm air. To the east is a mountain. If you want to return to civilization,
climb the mountain to get to Baga where you can catch a ferry out.This is
the Goa Freak capital of the World.
Anjuna becomes a fair of colors. Lines of vehicles full of tourists start
virtually raising clouds of dust in this area. Anjuna attracts a weird and
wonderful collection of over monks, defiant ex-hippies, gentle lunatics, artists,
artisans, seers, searchers, sybarites and itinerant expatriates who normally
wouldn't be seen out of the organic confines of their health-food emporia
in San Francisco or London.
Full moon, when the infamous parties take place, is a particularly good time
to be here if you want to indulge in bacchanalian delights. Only a Brit would
think about raving about the main beach, but it's worth the walk to the small,
protected sliver of sand at South Anjuna where the area's long-term house-renters
tend to gather.
