“A great place for fun with friend but if u are looking peace just stay away”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Baga is the currently the busiest and the most happening beaches in Goa. Pretty crowded, bustling with people, sun beds (Rs. 100 for an hour) and sport activities like water skiing (Rs. 300 for a 3-4 mins ride), parasailing (Rs. 600 for appx a min of being in air, but w0rth experiencing atleast once), banana boat ride etc during the day and beach side candle light dinner by the night, lined by shacks offering good value for money food and cheap booze, it's become a perfect party place for young. And offers great views with people and activity.

On the flipside, if u are looking to spend a quiet afternoon on the beach, this is not your place, too many vendors who will hassle u every 2 mins (though they are not unruly, loud or rude) sometimes for ice-cream or tatoo or braiding blah blah blah, too much noise, very little privacy, with occasional cow or dog walking by. Afternoons are the most crowded.

If u wish to enjoy peace and quiet mornings before 10 and evening after 7 are a good time to visit. But in any case it offers fun for everyone.

“Noisy and dirty”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

It is the most crowded and clumsy beach. But better than Calangute. Shacks are good. Market's also better.

The most happening place in North Goa. You name and you have it here. One can never be struck with boredom in the area.

“Great for people watching”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Not really our cup of tea for lazing on the beach as it's a bit full on & the shacks are average - buts its a brilliant place to people watch. Better to go mid way between Baga & Calungute where things are calmer & the shacks offer better food & service
