Welcome to North Goa
The region is framed by two great rivers – the Mandovi in the south and the Terekhol in the north – with some 35km of golden beaches in between. Calangute and Baga are the epicentre of the region, one of the few beach strips still humming in the off-season. Anjuna, with its famous Wednesday market, and Vagator still exude some hippie cool and party vibe, while the laid-back beaches of Morjim, Aswem and Mandrem are burgeoning family-friendly, Russian-heavy resorts with some flashy beachfront huts. In the far north, Arambol returns a bit of hippie-chic as a budget traveller enclave with cheap clifftop accommodation.
