Vagator and Chapora
north of Anjuna, is e center of Goa's trance party scene. The beach
itself is located at the bottom of a steep cliff, and is divided into
three sections -- Big Vagtor (the main stretch of beach, overrun by
Indian tourists), Little Vagator (past the rocks, known as Tel Aviv
Beach due to the number of Israelis there) and Ozran (Spagetthi Beach in
the far south, dominated by Italians). Disco Valley is nearby.
Accommodations at Vagator are inland instead of on the beach, with many
people staying there long-term. Head to Nine Bar, high above Ozran
beach, at sunset for early evening partying.
Location: North Goa, 9 kilometers (5 miles) from Mapusa and 22 kilometers (14 miles) from Panaji. The closest railway station is Thivim.
