Vagator Beach

Laze away days under the tropical sun and spend nights enjoying the infamous outdoor parties on this popular stretch of sandy shore.

Vagator Beach consists of two separate beaches: the broad and sweeping Big Vagator to the north and the more secluded Ozran, or Little Vagator, to the south. Both are relatively undeveloped, although Big Vagator tends to attract more tourists so head to tranquil Little Vagator to escape the crowds.

Big Vagator features dramatic cliffs, pristine sands and black lava rocks. Behind the beach, clusters of coconut palms sway in the ocean breeze and above, the red lateriate ramparts of long abandoned Chapora Fort stand on the cliff’s edge. The 17th-century Portuguese watch post appeared in Bollywood movie Dil Chahta Hai and domestic tourists come here in their droves to see where the blockbuster filmed. It’s worth ascending to the fort in late afternoon, as its position on the elevated headland makes an ideal viewing spot to watch the sun set over the Arabian Sea and the Chapora River.

Back on beach level, order a snack or drink from one of the shacks or restaurants and you can lounge on their beach beds for free. Otherwise, you will have to pay a fee to rent one. For a slightly quieter beach experience, make your way south to Little Vagator. Walk down a steep valley trail leading from the parking lot. With fewer shacks and people, you can enjoy some undisturbed relaxation. As you revel in the peaceful atmosphere, you might spot a herd of stray cows who are often seen strolling near the shore.

Stay until evening to experience Vagator’s legendary party scene. Popular nightlife haunts include 9 Bar above Little Vagator and the Sunday night parties at Hill Top, which take place throughout the tourist season and attract an international crowd. Vagator is also the site of the Sunburn electronic dance festival, which features superstar DJs and takes place in December.

Vagator is located about 14 miles (22 kilometers) from Panaji. There is a parking lot above the beach, in between Little Vagator and Big Vagator.
