Chapora Beach

Chapora Beach

Chapora Beach, Chapora Beach tours, Visit Chapora Beach of Goa, Travel to Chapora Beach, Beaches and Lakes of GoaLocation : 10-km From Mapusa, North Goa
Main Attraction : Chapora Fort
Nearby Attraction : Vagator Beach, Anjuna Beach, Siolim Best
Time To Visit : November To March

The quieter environs of the Vagator and Chapora beaches are a pleasant change after the lively and activity filled Anjuna Beach. The villages of Vagator and Chapora have lush green landscapes fringed with coconut palms, soft white sands, black lava rocks and a beautiful sea that turns from aquamarine to emerald green with the movement of the sun. The beaches are overlooked by a 500-year-oldPortuguese fort and life goes on peacefully and uninterruptedly here. It's unlikely that Chapora will ever develop into a major resort, either. Tucked away under a dense canopy of trees on the muddy southern shore of a river estuary, it lacks both the space and the white sand that have pulled crowds to Calangute and Colva. The Pit Stop If one has one's own transport however, Chapora is a good base from which to explore the region: Vagator is on the doorstep, Anjuna is a short ride to the south, and the ferry crossing at Siolim --gateway to the remote north of the state - is barely fifteen minutes away by road. The village is also well connected by bus to Mapusa, and there are plenty of sociable bars and cafes to hang out in. Apart from the guesthouses along the main road, most of the places to stay are long stay houses in the woods. Chapora Old fort Chapora's chief landmark is its venerable Old Fort, most easily reached from the Vagator side of the hill. At low tide, one can also walk around the bottom of the headland, via the anchorage, and the secluded coves beyond it, to big Vagator, then head up the hill from there.

Finding somewhere to eat in Chapora is easy: just take a pick from the crop of affordable little cafes and restaurants on the main street. The popular Welcome, halfway down, offers a reasonable selection of inexpensive and filling seafood, Western and Vegetarian dishes, plus relentless reggae and techno music, and backgammon sets. The Preyanka, nearby, is in much the same mould, but has a few more Indian and Chinese options. If one is suffering from chilli burn afterwards, Scarlet Cold Drinks and the Sai Ganesh Café, both a short way east of the main street, knock up deliciously cool fresh fruit milkshakes.

How To Get There

Road : Direct buses arrive at Chapora three times daily from Panjim, and every fifteen minutes from Mapusa, with departures until 7.00 pm. Motorcycle taxis hang around the old banyan tree at the far end of the main street, near where the buses pull in.

Places To Stay
If one wants to check in to a reasonable guesthouse try the west side of the main street in Chapora.
