ANJUNA FLEAMARKET &
SATURDAY NIGHT MARKET
The flea market in Anjuna is one of the world's most famous markets! It´s huge, it´s fun and it´s crazy! The flea is going on every Wednesday from around 10:00 am to sunset. The Saturday night market is a nice visit for shopping, eating or just hanging around. Open from 5 pm to 1 am.
About an hour walk north on the beach from Palm Grove Beach Resort, or a 10 minute drive you´ll get to Arambol, a small village that is crowded with backpackers and where you can do some serious touristy shopping.
MAPUSA AND MANDREM
The closest town is Mapusa. Every day is a market day but Friday is the day when locals have their special market day so here you will find anything from local fruits to jewellery! Mandrem is the closest village with services such as Grocery store, Doctor, Pharmacy, Tailor and further more.
Ashvem village is a part of the Mandrem area. For a more authentic interaction we advise you to take a walk or a drive through the area behind the beach to see the huge Ashvem Banyan Tree and some local temples.
Between Morjim and Terekhol are some of the least discovered and developed beaches and villages in Goa. Take the ferry or the new bridge over to Marahastra and hang out on Paradise Beach for a day.
Wake up early in the morning and get picked up just by the beach below our resort by the local fishermen, who will take you out for an 1-1,5 hour boat trip where you if you are lucky, might see some happy dolphins swimming!
A great idea is to explore Panjim for a day. Take a walk through the old buildings in India's only Latin Quarter called Fontainhas. Don’t miss a lunch or dinner at Hospendaria Venite, such a cool old school Goan heritage restaurant. Try the local Chicken Xacuti or Fish Curry Rice.
