Good old Anjuna has been a stalwart of the hippie scene since the 1960s and still drags out the sarongs and sandalwood each Wednesday (in season) for its famous flea market. Though it continues to pull in droves of backpackers, midrange and domestic tourists are increasingly making their way here for a dose of hippie-chic. Anjuna is continuing to evolve, with a heady beach party scene and a flowering of new restaurants and bars.
The village itself is a bit ragged around the edges and is spread out over a wide area. Do as most do: hire a scooter or motorbike and explore the back lanes and southern beach area and you’ll find a place that suits. Anjuna will grow on you.
