Vagator Beach In Goa

Vagator beach, crowned by the Chapora Fort, is skirted by Anjuna Beach to the south. Vagator is divided into three beaches, North Vagator, Ozrant Beach and Tel Aviv Beach. The three beaches cater to a large number of Israeli and British tourists.

How to get there

You can board a bus either from Panaji, which is at a distance of 32km, or from Mapusa that is 10km away. But the bus service is not frequent and the beach is around 2km from the junction where the bus leaves passengers.

What to experience

There is a freshwater spring about 100m for the beach. Those who want to go angling can go to the fishing jetty at Chapora village. South from the Ozrant Beach is a carved out statue of Lord Shiva. The sculptor is not known but it is believed to belong to the day's when hippies came to Goa in droves. Next to the beach is the Chapora Fort.

Adventure Sports

A trek to the fort is pleasurable experience. Chapora, also known as the little fishing village, is ideal for anglers.
