Vagator Beach – Exploring Margao and Adjoining Rural Goa

Once my visit to the Laxmi Narsimhar temple was over I decided to visit one of the famous beaches of Goa known as Vagator Beach. I had visited all the famous monuments and attractions of Goa so now I decided to chill down at one of its famous beach. Vagator beach is located in the Margao area and is visited by thousands of tourists on a daily basis.

The beach is located at a distance of 22 km from the Panaji area. I decided to go there, spend an evening and replenish my soul. The weather at that time was cool and made a perfect evening to spend. The view of the Portuguese fort from the beach was stunning and worth capturing in the camera. The fort which was built some 500 years ago still stands tall and the kaleidoscopic view makes relaxing on the beach even more attractive.

The rustic charm and the beauty of the Margao town can be beautifully explored by visiting the Vagator beach. The best way to explore this part of the state is by hiring a bike or scooter for a day which is available not at very high costs. The charm of the rural Goa can then be experienced more joyfully. One will find many interesting spots to capture in their cameras and keep them as lifelong moments.

The beach is also well connected to other parts of Goa as many taxis, hired jeeps and trains run from the nearby places. From Mapusa and Panaji one may find roadways buses plying for the comfort of the tourists. There are not many hotels located near the beach but guest houses are there to provide accommodation to the tourists. The cafes and eateries provide light meals for the tourists at reasonable prices.

After spending few hours at vagator beach and surrounding areas of Margao, I headed back to my hotel. My trip to Goa came to an end with this visit. The next day I was to head straight to my home in Jaipur and continue with my normal routine. This vacation in Goa was a much needed break for my mind body and soul. The memories of this place will certainly inspire me to visit it again in future.

"Hi there, my name is Lalit Chandran. I currently reside in ‘Pink city’ i.e. Jaipur where I run a garment export business. Having spent all my childhood in Rajasthan, I fell in love with Indian history and all its glory. So, whenever I get an opportunity, I travel to various places all across India exploring old cities, museums, forts and historic monuments. This blog will catalogue all the places I have visited, people I have met along the way and different cultures I got a chance to experience.

I am hoping sharing all my adventures will help raise awareness about our ancient heritage and maybe help preserve and protect these remnants  of India’s glorious past. Feel free to leave your comments. "
