Anjuna is a village in Goa, located 8 Km west of Mapusa. It is one of the twelve Brahmin comunidades of Bardez and is famous for its trance parties held on the beach during the tourist season. The place hosts the famous flea market (Every Wednesday) a place to purchase things, ranging from fruits to jewelry, clothes and electronic devices. Anjuna flea market runs from dawn till dusk every Wednesday.
The fluorescent painted palm trees and infamous full moon parties makes Anjuna Goa at its most “alternative”. Anjuna remains filled with a weird, wonderful and somewhat diminished, collection of defiant ex-hippies, overlanders, monks, gentle lunatics, artists, artisans, seers, searchers and itinerant expatriates. The village itself is certainly a bit ragged around the edges these days, but Anjuna remains a favourite of long-stayers and first-timers alike.
Spread out over a wide area, Anjunas most northerly point is the main Starco crossroads, where most buses stop and around which many eating options are dotted. Its southernmost point is the flea market site, about 2km to the south. Most useful services and accommodation are along the beach, or in lanes in between.
