Anjuna is a beach famous world over. It is also famous for its “Wednesday Flea Market” which is held every Wednesday. It is closed during the off tourist season. It’s a place that gets tourists without marketing. The majority of the tourists comprise Israelis and European ravers and most of the tourists are those who have been visiting the year every year. Vagator and Chapora beaches are to the north of Anjuna and on the southern end is the beautiful Calangute Beach.
Beach parties still do take place over here. Anjuna also has some of the hottest discotheques in Goa. The tourist over here is spread out all along as they visit Anjuna not only for the beautiful quiet beach but also for the Wednesday flea market.
It happens to be a major attraction and a must-see for every person visiting Goa. Every Wednesday brings in tourists from all over Goa to Anjuna. One is greeted with a scene of hundreds of stalls, loud music as they enter. It’s always an amazing sight. Here you can find stalls selling small artifacts, clothes, beachwear, wood carvings, and outfits with intricate embroidery, glittering fabric, puppets, colourful clothes, Jewellery and gems, mirror work, Music cassettes, CDs, and DVDs. If it’s your day, you can walk away with a good deal from a foreign tourist selling second-hand goods. Artists doing henna tattoos, permanent body tattoos, and body piercing are also found here. This market has a mind-boggling cornucopia of goods from almost every part of India. As you proceed towards the end of the stalls towards the food stalls you can pick up some lip-smacking seafood accompanied by an icy cocktail, beer, or fresh lime soda.
The Anjuna beach has beach shacks along the beach. What could be more refreshing than to have a late evening swim on the beach and to track your muddy footprints to the dining shack at the beach and enjoy some of the exotic seafood served there along with a cocktail. An ideal way to end a day.
