Baga Beach is where all the action is. From the best of beach shacks to the best of restaurants, best hotels and accommodation and even an authentic German bakery, Baga Beach has it all. Baga Beach is grand, both in terms of size and the experience it offers.
When you get there, you can’t help but notice a whole lot of touts trying to get you to buy adventure sport tickets off them. Metaphorical tickets, of course, since all they do is hook you up with the people actually involved, and make a cut of the deal.
Nevertheless, they manage to get you a good deal, most of the time. Baga Beach is famous for parasailing, water bike rides, banana rides and boating. There are cafes offering amazing alcohol and cocktail and sea food to die for.
One might want to give the Goan fish curry rice a try, which is a hot favourite among tourists. Tourists must make it a point to go for chocolate wafer biscuits which are quite a steal and really yummy!
Karaoke nights are common at the Baga Beach with most of the shacks offering karaoke setups in the evenings. Practically all the shacks offer hukahs in tonnes of different flavours.
There are frequent buses from different parts of Goa that ply to Baga Beach. The beach is very close to ample pay and park zones which makes it convenient to explore over an entire afternoon.
Shopping for clothes and accessories is commonplace, and a good bargain is not uncommon. Baga is best explored on foot, and getting there is easy enough from Candolim, Panjim or any other neighbouring beaches. A cab or auto rickshaw is the best way to get there.
