Location of Mapusa Goa:
Mapusa Goa is situated 13 Kms, north of Panaji. It lies at the crossroads of National Highways and is an important gateway to the beaches of North Goa.

Mapusa Goa - Know before you go
The town's name, pronounced `Map-sa', after the Konkani words for `measure' and `fill', is an indication of its commercial nature. Mapusa Goa is the main commercial centre of the population in the northern provinces of Goa and the main town for the supplies if you are staying at either Anjuna or Chapora. This is the capital of Bardez taluka, North Goa. During Mapusa holidays Goa visit its famous Friday Market when the whole of Bardez comes to buy and sell products of all kinds. If you're staying at Calangute, Baga or Candolin, you have choice of Panaji or Mapusa as service centre. There's not much to see in Mapusa Goa, though the Friday market is worth a visit. On your Mapusa tours India, explore some of Goa's most popular beaches.
Major Attractions of Mapusa Goa
Calangute: About 8 km south from Mapusa, Calangute is must visiting site during your Mapusa holidays Goa. The sizzling beach offers good sunbathing, passable swimming and the most delicious food along the coast.

Baga: A happening beach 10 km west of Mapusa Goa, crescent-shaped Baga is less crowded than Calangute, but comparatively safer for swimming. Baga has soft white sand and a green backdrop of paddy fields. Plan your Mapusa tours India to enjoy water sports like parasailing, jet skiing, body boarding and surfing at Baga beach. Another attraction of the tourists not to be missed while enjoying Mapusa holiday Goa are the dolphin cruises on a boat out at sea. Baga's nightlife is more exciting than Calangute's, with music, dance and wine.

Anjuna: Anjuna has traditionally been a rave centre and attracts partygoers and backpackers to its famous beach parties, especially around the Christmas-New Year season. Anjuna's golden sands and tall coconut palms make the beachfront a pretty hangout place and the sea is safe for swimming.

Arambol: Arambol (also called Harmal) is pretty but not overcrowded. Arambol's stretches of soft white sand would be just what the doctor ordered for your peace of mind. There are regular trance parties and even full moon parties here.
