Beautiful Settings & Less Crowded
Feb 2021
Vegator is one of the beach of many beached in Goa. During our visit to Goa in Feb’20, we visited Vagator Beach as part of North Goa tour. It is located near Chopra Fort. Vagator Beach is split into two main beaches by a seaside cliff. There was enough space for car park, situated at the top, we reached to the beach through steps. The place had many small stalls selling junk jewelries, clothes, soft drinks and snacks, we made some bargain purchases of junk jewelry and souvenir items. The beach was less crowded, spotted several foreign tourists. Beachside also has limited shacks as compared to Baga and Calangute. We spotted some local boys playing cricket on the beach, cows roaming here & there etc. Due to its settings, the beach has a nice view especially from top, however it looks to be slightly laid back and less touristy.

Beautiful Beach
Dec 2020 • Solo
Very beautiful, clean and little less crowded beach near Chapora with good restaurants, pubs and water sports activities. One can go to Chapora Fort from there or climb up the hill to watch sunset. One can enjoy nicely in this shallow beach with open music around.

nice little beach
Nov 2020
this is a very nice little beach near Anjuna. The rocks were fun for kids. Water not deep. Enough people and restaurants/bars/cafes to keep things interesting.

Cool Beach!
Oct 2020
Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, this place seems to never die. It's full of tourists, sports, shacks, and fun! Great for chilling out by yourself or your friends. The cleanliness can be better, though.

Goa has a lot better beaches to offer. I have been to this beach in Feb'20 and I stayed there only for 5 minutes as the beach was not very clean.

North Goa sandy beach with nearby bars and not as busy as Baga beach
Feb 2020
We came across Vagator beach whilst visiting the nearby ruined Portuguese fort on the overlooking hill and it proved to be a good move for an extended lunch with drinks. The beach is sandy and about half a mile long, rocky outcrops at each end with several small bars serving food/drinks in an slightly elevated position, so you have a good view across the whole beach area.
We spent a pleasant couple of hours watching people enjoying the beach/sea as well as some local lads playing cricket in-between several cows strolling wherever they wanted and the local coconut milk sellers dog chasing them away from his maters stall. The water seemed clean with small waves so probably safe bathing and paddling to be had along with a clean sandy shoreline.
It was nothing like as bustling as Baga beach which we had visited the previous evening and much more attractive for bathing or generally just lazing around. We stayed a good hour longer than planned and thoroughly enjoyed our snacks and drinks in the beach bar, of which there are three of four.
A local taxi from our hotel in Arpora (The Park Regis) was around 300 rupees so an affordable day out to a quiet relaxing beach with just enough commercial development to not spoil the tranquillity was very easy to do.

Vagator Beach - less crowded , and nice sunset view.
Feb 2020
One has to walk down a bit to reach the sandy beach . Proper stair case is there , so there is no problem in climbing down right up-to the beach.

Less crowded , water sports available. Restaurant food is quite good here . there are a number of Mediterranean and Indian Cafes/Hotels serving a variety of food and drink.

The tourist traffic is predominantly Western backpackers, however it has also become popular with Indian tourists, who particularly come to watch the sunset from the rocks. The sunset through rocks is breathtaking from Vagator Beach.

This is in my opinion is the best beach in North Goa . View of sunset is Awesome from here .
