Vagator beach is a nice and clean beach for any tourists to visit, this beach is not crowded like other beaches in Goa and people can enjoy the peaceful environment and especially the beach is neat and clean.

Vagator beach is actually two beaches split by a rocky headland. Some call the two parts Big Vagator, and Little Vagator beach. The headland itself has the access road, parking, and some food, drink and souvenir stalls. The beach is relatively rocky and not very clean. It is not as nice as some of Goa's other beaches. Just off the... More

Vagator is not for swimming. As it's sea line is rocky and waves are petty hush. But it has a best scenic beauty. Vagator covered with mountains which provides beautiful landscape to the beach. It also has fort which is on the peak of mountain surrounded by sea which makes best hangout place for young couples.

Vagator beach is quite a popular beach and comes after crossing baga and anjana beach. Its a rocky beach and quite away from the crowded baga and calangute beach. One can spend time there relaxing and enjoying nature. The beach can be seen from the top which will give you some superb views and can view the entire beach. or... More

The first view of the Vagator beach from a height was simply breathtaking. It's definitely one of the most scenic beaches in Goa with calm waters and both rocks and sands. Take a leisurely stroll on the long beach or traipse on its tricky rocks, it has something for everyone. You can also visit the nearby Chapora Fort, where some... More

The beach was not as crowded as the other beaches. The sand is really clean. The beach has many rocks on which you can sit and enjoy the water splashing on you. Try and visit it if you do not want to go to a place as crowded as Anjuna or Baga.

I can definitely call it as one of the best beaches in Goa. It has been well maintained and looks quite a clean and calm beach with the Chapora fort/Hill as the backdrop. Quite a few water sports are also available here.There is a sunset bar at one end and that part of the beach is really quiet.

The beach would be very nice if it was clean. Trash was everywhere. Waves were big and there were a good number people enjoying the surf even with the red flag warning. Parasailing, and other water sports available. Lots of vendors at the top of the cliff where there is parking and toilets. The beach is set below red cliffs,... More

This is a late review. Vagator Beach is one of the beaches we visited during the one day group tour package from Panaji. It is a lovely beach without the crowd of other popular Goan beaches so you will surely find the opportunity to relax here. The beach offers great photo opportunity.
