Baga beach of Goa

Baga is a beach town in the state of Goa, India. It comes under the jurisdiction of Calangute, which is 2 km (1 mi) south. Baga is known for its brown sands, and creek, the Baga Creek. It is visited by thousands of tourists annually.

The Baga Beach located 10 kms west of Mapusa, is actually an extension of Calangute beach with clean white sand. Baga is a small but perfect beach located between two famous beaches, Colva and Calangute. It is a fishing beach with foreigners bathing in the sun other tourists swimming in the cool azure waters.

Like the flea market of Anjuna, Baga has started a Saturday night market, which is quite impressive but somehow lacks the liveliness and splendor of the Anjuna market. The beach also has many beach shacks and beach huts that sell delicious Goan food and thirst-quenching Feni.
The quiet atmosphere and isolated location of Baga, beside the scenic beauty that surrounds it, with the creek and the Retreat House perched have contributed to the beach being a favourite of the beach lovers. Baga beach is very popular with western tourists who love to use it as a base for water sports and fishing in the area.
Baga's nightlife is the liveliest in the area with live bands playing at most restaurants outlets. Most of the travellers end up at Tito's. 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. There are plenty of handicrafts shops. Here stalls sell all kinds of bric-a-brac, clothes, trinkets, exotic delicacies and Goanese Cuisine. Funky haircuts, tarot reading, palmistry, wood carvings are also available. Plus live bands who create a carnival like ambience simply makes the place rock. Source
