Anjuna beach is one of the most well-known beaches of Goa. Let’s discover it in pictures in this guide to the beaches of Goa!
A view over Anjuna Beach
We went to visit Anjuna beach in the end of April 2010, the time of year when the restaurants, bars and beach shacks are about to close, so Anjuna beach appears on these pictures to be quiet, but during the tourist season, october to end of march, it’s really a very active place, and the beach which is not a very broad, even if it is a long one, becomes crowded fast.
Anjuna used to be the spot of hippies in the 60’s and 70’s, but now, you hardly see them, they have moved in some more quiet places in Maharastra for example.
As almost all the beaches of Goa, Anjuna beach is facing west, and everyday, during your stay you can enjoy wonderful and various sunsets. The beach is about 1,5 km long (a bit less than 1 mile).
Now, let’s look at some pictures of Anjuna beach and its village!
