If only we had a penny for every time we decided to go to Goa for a vacation but failed to, we'd probably have made enough money for the trip itself! If you've experienced this feeling due to major indecisiveness or conflict of interests, stop all your worries.
A vacation to Goa can fix all your fatigue and give you the needed break from your routine life. But with the beaches galore, you might find yourself in a fix, not being able to pick the right place. And if you are the kind of person who enjoys staying at a place and just enjoys the sun, beach waves, sand and the smell of fresh saltwater, then head to Vagator Beach located in North Goa.
Vagator Beach is located 22 km from the capital city of Panaji. It is one of the most serene beaches in Goa that remains clean and peaceful since it is a relatively offbeat destination. This crescent-shaped beach that has golden sand and glittering water, is divided into two parts - North Vagator Beach or the Big Beach and Ozran Beach or the Little Beach.
For a laid-back vacation, Vagator is certainly the ideal place to be at since it offers everything, right from partying at luxury hotels to trying adventure sports for an adrenaline rush. The beach is lined with shacks and restaurants where you can stay and try out the local seafood cuisine.
