The choice here is better than anywhere else in Goa. There are numerous beach resorts, hotels of all standards, cottages and guest houses. For those who wish to stay in local houses, the best area is just beyond the concrete bridge at the Baga River.
There is an enormous number of restaurants in this comparatively small area. Most hotels and resorts have their own and there are more beach shacks than could possibly be shown on this map. Some restaurants, such as the Lila Cafe have European management. The most famous is probably Tito's in Saunta Vaddo. Furthermore there is fast food, ice cream parlours and the Infantaria and German Bakeries.
Buses leave from both Baga (by the river) and Calangute (the bus stand by the temple) for Mapusa,Panaji and Anjuna. South Anjuna is only a 30 min. walk over the rocks from the Baga River.
Anjuna 5km, Mapusa 11km, Panaji 19km, Candolim 2km.
