Vagator is a popular beach with the tour operators. However,
a little further south of this main beach is a more sedate
beach known as Little Vagator or Ozran beach. This beach
accommodates a fresh water pool. Little Vagator also has a
number of good eating-places. What is the trademark of Goa
is very well reflected in Vagator - one of the most
beautiful of the soft white sand beaches that Goa is famous
for. On the northwest corner of the city are the remains of
the Chapora fort, well preserved, offering some splendid
views from its ramparts. The inhabited area around this
beach is lush green, dotted with coconut palms, friendly
farmhouses and pictorial Portuguese bungalows.
Vagator, like Anjuna, is a relaxed and fairly undeveloped
place. It has an excellent, hassle-free atmosphere. If one
wants to have a good time on the beach and want to party to
the maximum, this is definitely the place to go. To reach
this beach, you have to walk about a minute down a steep
cliff. It is actually two beaches divided by rocks going out
into the sea. The northern part of the beach is smaller and
more crowded. The south beach is fairly spread out and more
secluded and free.
