5 AN­JUNA BEACH

Business Traveler (USA) - - 4 HOURS -

No day out in Goa would be com­plete with­out a visit to one (or more) of the state’s leg­endary beaches. Along eight miles of ocean­front that runs from Fort Aquada to the mouth of the Cha­pora River, you have your pick of some of In­dia’s – and in­deed, the world’s – most invit­ing beaches. Can­dolim, lo­cated near­est the fort, man­ages to es­cape the hordes of peak-sea­son vis­i­tors that fre­quent the more com­mer­cial­ized beaches like Baga and Calangute, which is north Goa’s largest and busiest. Far­ther north, An­juna Beach boasts a mag­nif­i­cent Al­bu­querque Man­sion built in 1920,and each Wed­nes­day there’s a whim­si­cal flea mar­ket. It’s a quaint re­minder of a time when An­juna was the ‘al­ter­na­tive des­ti­na­tion’ so sought after by hip­pies dur­ing the 60s and 70s – a fla­vor that en­dures to this day. BT
