What a beautiful quiet and relaxing place this is. We found Arambol to be a lovely peaceful place and this is even more so, in fact in comparison, Arambol is bustling. There is literally nothing to do here apart from enjoy the beach. We have been getting up and walking or running along the beach, eating a delicious breakfast in the resorts restaurant that is right on the beach and then either lounging under an umbrella or swimming all day at the beach.
We hired a scooter and visited the nearby makets at Anjuna. They are famous flea markets that have been happening since the 70’s and have morphed from what was once a hippie exchange to full blown markets with over 500 stalls. The area is quite spread out and there are markets everywhere. There are some nice pubs and cafes right over the water at the far end of the markets where you can relax with a nice cool drink. They are probably the best markets we have visited this holiday in terms of both what they are offering, price and location. We had an awesome time there.
Tomorrow we head for the capital of Goa, Panaji. It has a strong Portuguese influence and the old quarter is supposed to be pretty cool.
