Vagator Travel Guide

Vagator Overview

Vagator beach is located on the north coast of Goa, India and is one of the most unique beaches of Goa due to its location under the steep hills. Located about 3 Km north of Anjuna, Vagator is decidedly more laidback and far more cleaner of a beach.

Vagator is divided into two beaches; Big Vagator to the north and Little Vagator to the south. Big Vagator is huge crescent shaped beach with little or no facilities and mostly popular with Indian tourist, while Little Vagator has more of a western vibe and several beach huts and restaurants.
Once a location for wild raves and crazy, drug fueled, all night parties, Vagator is now considerable more tame. However some nightlife does remain at places on backside of Little Vagator so all is not lost.
Vagator can be reached by the bus line from Arambol, Sinquerim or Mapusa or by taxi. Once in Vagator everything is easily navigable by foot.
