Baga Beach is one of the most popular beach and a tourist’s paradise in North Goa. This busy beach is located up north and is at the tip of the sandy stretch that starts from Sinquerim and Candolim before leading into Calangute and then culminating into Baga. Though heavily crowded during peak season, this beach may pose a deserted look due to the Corona pandemic as of now.
Otherwise, be it day or night, it is always crowded. The long beach which is dotted with numerous shacks makes it the most frequented beach. Tourists enjoying sea bath is a common sight here. One can hire a reclining chair with an umbrella and enjoy the sunset with booze and food by the side.
Nightlife in Baga
Also, the nightlife is amazing here with the famous Tito’s Nightclub offering late-night and after night parties till the wee hours. Evening time is the best to be here if you are a foodie and a party lover so that you make the most of your outing. The entire beach is lit up to the stretch as far as you could see and the sound of varying music reverberates through the air sending most into euphoria.
Best is to spend some time in the waters and then one can settle down at Britto’s or St Anthony’s restaurant which offers karaoke where there’s enough at hand to spend most of the remainder of the evening and also enjoy a candlelight dinner. You could park in the farther off place and then walk down Tito’s lane to the beach. Tito’s lane is another of the big time nightlife joint around Baga.
