Nestled in the rocky wooded headland, Baga Beach is an endearing abode of scenic beauty and a paradise for nature lovers. If you are looking to enjoy a lie-down on a hut, Baga Beach is an ideal choice for you. When it comes to most touristy beach in North Goa, Baga Beach is definitely sky-high on the popularity chart. From beach shacks to food to adventure games, all kinds of facilities are available at your disposal.

Water sports are the perfect attractions of this beach, which drive the tourists to experience its wonders. The major attractions at Baga Beach include wake boarding, windsurfing, kite surfing, Jet Skiing and Para-sailing.
· Sun Village at Sankvaddi
The Sun Village at Sankvaddi, where a stream of the river flows towards Anjuna, practically outshines the bottle green hill which separates Baga from Anjuna.
· Chapel of St. Annie
The Church of St. Annie is considered as the master-piece of Indian Baroque style. It is sad to know that this marvelous church is in a crumbling state at present. The festivity at St. Annie, which falls on 26th July, is celebrated all throughout Goa. It is a recorded fact that although the Portuguese introduced their Christian festivals to Goa, however, Goan modified these festivals to befit their seasons without changing the dates.
There is a large black rock, known as the Chor Biam, positioned at the foot of the hilltop. It is believed that treasures of wreckage are hidden here, along with anchors, bells and cannons etc.
· The Coffin Bridge
Built after the visits of international tourists, The Coffin Bridge is a bizarre box which locals used for crossing to visit to Calangute Beach, a neighboring beach.
Water sports are a huge attraction. Here you can go Para sailing, wind surfing, kite surfing, wake boarding and jet skiing. Dolphin spotting trips and island trips are on offer. However, many people just want to laze around on the sun lounges in front of the beach shacks all day and feast upon steady supply of beer, cocktails and food.
· Anjuna Flea Market
The Anjuna Flea Market attracts too many people from all North Goa on every Wednesday. If you’re going on a 2-wheeler, you are required to pay a few rupees for parking. Inside the market, you’ll find all the shops that are on the street.
· Saturday Night Market
The Saturday Night Market at Arpora is a must visit attraction for sightseeing which every tourist should visit while travelling in Goa. On Saturday evenings, the entertainment spots are usually empty as tourists flock to the market.
Both these markets are located nearby, and will satisfy even the best of shopaholics.
