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 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, sea food 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.
