Anjuna is a small village in north Goa, on the shores of the Arabian Sea. It lies 18 km away from Panaji, the capital of Goa.

Climate
Goa has a consistent climate throughout the year with just meager fluctuations in the temperature. December and January might require light woolens, but April and May are warm. The period from June to October brings heavy rain, almost up to 320 cm. The temperature during the summers ranges from 24°C to 32.7°C and during the winters it ranges from 21.3°C to 32.2°C.

The Beach
Anjuna Beach is popularly known as the freak capital of the world, for its claimed popularity of Trance Parties and the Hippies who tried to synthesize the spiritual traditions of the East and the art, ideas and the music of the West. The area was discovered by a group of travelers, sometime in the late 1950s to mid-1960s, including Eight Finger Eddie. Since then a small international psychedelic scene began to meet there to party during the dry season. As the calm water of the Arabian sea fondles the Indian shore, Anjuna comes alive with its ever-famous full-moon pungent parties and the Wednesday flea market to take one on to a trance trip.

Wednesday Flea Market
Every Wednesday, at around 11 a.m., Anjuna breaks into a flood of colours. Huge number of tourists vehicles start raising clouds of dust in its surroundings. Whatever one needs, from a used paperback to a haircut, one would find it here. The flea market is a heaven for hardcore shoppers and good bargainers, to bid on wonderful blends of Tibetan, Kashmiri and Gujarati trinkets and handicrafts, European snacks, cassettes of a noisy brand of music called 'Goa Trance', artificial ornaments carvings and T-shirts.

The Acid House Party
Anjuna is also known for its full-moon acid parties. Held for and by young tourists, these parties have attracted thousands of tourists. The trance party with fun & frolic goes all night besides the fire.
