We went to Vagator Beach on 13 Feb 2013 in the afternoon. Among other north goa beaches this beach is splendid. No hasslers bugging you, no crowd, peace and quiet welcomes you. We found very few beach shacks.The road ends at some height above the beach and the view is breath taking. We walked down 50 steps to the beach and we were greeted by a lonely shack where we had coconut water.
The most outstanding feature of this beach is the gradual slope to the sea and the small hill just above the beach. For kids it was great since we could let them go quite far into the sea and still the level of water was thigh deep. The sand here was brownish and we did find some sea shells while strolling in the shore.
In the end all i can say is we had a pleasant couple of hours here without being disturbed even once and that is what really matters.
