Baga lies between Anjuna and Calangute. Where Anjuna is in the north and Calangute is on the south. Baga is also termed as the extension of Calangute. It is difficult to m ake out where one ends and the other begins. Baga is a comparatively clean beach. However, it is full of hawkers. There are quite a few hotels in this area.
You'd like it even though it is a fishing beach and fairly crowded with foreigners marinating in the sun and domestic visitors paddling; and in spite of the fact that the sand here isn't either white or gold but brown. You'd like the grove of palms that comes fairly close to the water's edge. Most of all, you'd be happy on this beach because the Baga River flows down one side of it offering a pleasant diversion for children and those who love the water but can't risk the rip currents that must swirl round the mouth. Where the river and the sea meet, and on the far right bank, there is a group of black rocks against which the sea crashes in dramatic explosions of spray.
Baga has recently begun a Saturday night market. The market is quite good but nothing compared to the Anjuna Flee market. Continental cuisine and good seafood is also available at various places in and around Anjuna. Various water sports like parasailing and windsurfing are offered at this beach.
