Vagator - For A Stroll Along White Sands


Best accessible from Mapusa via a narrow lane lined with bungalows and well preserved Portuguese style settlements is a beach not spoken of much, but as beautiful as they get. Much of Vagator Beach’s glamour gets stolen by the neighbouring and very famous Anjuna Beach which is just a walk away.

Vagator Beach is very proximate to Chapora fort and boasts of clean white sand. Also, the beach is served by numerous restaurants and eateries, one of the popular ones being Primrose Shack serving some very flavour rich Goan dishes and some traditional Indian ones. Nevertheless, seafood is abundant around Vagator and one must not miss out! Nine bar is the place to be when it turns dark.

Getting to Vagator is easy enough. Ask a cabbie to take you to Mapusa or Anjuna beach, and it’s a picturesque walk from both these places. One can also choose to hire a bike from Candolim or Baga and ride down, which should take just a few minutes.

How to Reach Vagator

  • By Road
    Goa can be accessed from Mumbai via the famous Mumbai � Goa highway or National Highway 17 which links Mumbai straight to Goa. Off late though, this route has fallen into disrepute on accord of there just being 2 lanes all along, one up and one down which not only is a little dangerous but also makes for a longer journey. The more convenient route is to head to Pune from Mumbai via the 8 lane expressway and then connect up to the Satara highway right till one gets to Sawantwadi on the far end of Maharashtra. Goa is just another few minutes from there. From Mumbai, Pune and other cities in Maharashtra, numerous bus services are available to Goa and very comfortable ones at that. The recommended kind to take is any service operating a low floor Volvo semi sleeper.
