Anjuna Beach, Goa

'Life is a party'. If you live by this phrase then Goan beaches are the place you ought to be holidaying at. And even those who don't believe in the merriment of life will start giving second thoughts once they are here. Goa's beaches by nature are most versatile. From the peppy ones which are kept awake all night by trance parties to the long stretches of virgin beach territories, Goa has something to offer to every holiday mood. Being washed twice a day by tides and getting a new look every year courtesy the monsoons, each of the beaches exude a personality of their own.

There are beaches which are fully commercialized, have upmarket stores, massage centres, gym, night clubs and then there are ones which have no signs of habitation. While some are fairly safe for swimming, at others swimming is a complete no. The beaches are packed up with thrill with water sports ranging from parasailing to jet skiing, windsurfing to speed boating. The beach shacks serve all the sea food, the grilled and the roasted. Feni is more then a drink, its the staple drink and at night every second house on the beach will be open for the public offering cheap sea food and drinks.

Most beaches are named after the closest village. The scenic beauty of the beach is complemented with the red brick small houses of the village and white washed churches.
