Anjuna used to be the party place in Goa, where hippies came to take drugs and live cheaply. Now it is more low key. There are still the odd foreigners who seemed to never want to leave but mostly the tourists that visit range between small groups to couples and families. There is a weekly Flea Market there which is massive and has been going since the 70's. The beach itself is about a 2km stretch with rocks at either end. Along the sand are restaurants and just behind that is loads of accommodation. The accommodation is mostly basic hut style places that could easily be dismantled as well as guesthouses.
We stayed right on the beach, the back of our guesthouse backed onto the sand. While we were there we spent our days lazing around, swimming and participated in a cooking class. Diwali (the festival of lights) happened during our time there but unfortunately we didn't see any celebrations. In the afternoons there were beautiful sunsets right over the water which we enjoyed whilst watching the local beach cricket matches that happened almost daily.
