Situated eight kilometers west of Mapusa, Anjuna beach is the most happening of all beaches, one rather say its the mother of all beaches in Goa. People flocking this beach are so varied in their interests, yet they all come to Anjuna for the same reason. No one wants to miss the sensation of being on a beach that has been the hub of trance parties since decades. The magic of Anjuna beach can't be put to words, only experienced, maybe in a hopping beach party under a moon lit sky.
This is a popular beach of north Goa. The beach was 'discovered' sometime in 1950's and 60's by a group of travellers and then they began to meet here in dry season to party. It gets very busy in Anjuna from November onwards with tourists of varied types flocking to this otherwise simple village. The atmosphere here during the peak season surprises as it a favorite destination of the hippies and backpackers since the 70's.
