View of the Vagator beach and the Arabian sea from the Vagator hill top. The beach is located in North Goa around 8 kms. from Panjim the capital of Goa. Pictured here is the Big Vagator beach from the top of a cliff. Towards the left is the lesser known Little Vagator Beach. The beach, specially the hill top from where this photo is taken is famous among western backpackers for its rave parties. The International Sunburn Festival, has also shifted base from Candolim to Vagator hilltop in recent years. If you are not interested in music, Vagator is also a fine place for a laid back holiday. The best places to stay in Vagator is a little bit away from the sea, due to restrictions on construction near the beach, but those are all within walking distance. This has helped to keep the beach calm and clean.
Thanks for stopping by.

This is a beautiful scene of this beach, and one I need to see this morning. Outside my window, a storm is blowing, the sky is grey and the rain is heavy, so its another world to be able to be transported to this beautiful paradise. It is great to hear of there being restrictions on construction near the beach too, so many of the worlds beaches have been wrecked by the construction of horrible apartments and hotels. Nothing can beat the natural look of a beach like this. Thanks for the great note too.

Hello Subho ,
This is curious to see so many people on the beach , and nobody enjoying the bath !
A superb tropical beach , with the elegant palm trees on the right .

wonderful beach her dear Subho. You composed the frame superbly placing those coconut trees at right with the sea shores at left. Excellent light and fine colour tone. Superb shot. Tfs.

I have never been to Goa, but this is one good shot of the sea, with the blue of the water mixing flawlessly with one of the sky.
the waves too are marvelous.

Very nice pov from hill-top. Wonderful blues here. To portray the vastness of sea and sky, you have left sufficient negative space... liked it. Excellent colors. Tiny human figures and bathers at the far end, add life to the scene.
Superb shot. Enjoyed it.

A very good shot of this tropical paradise. Nicely composed with the palms at the left.
The beach certainly looks popular but the people seem to be wearing regular clothes rather than beach wear. I had heard that Goa is a very popular tourist destination for Europeans.

From your high vantage point you offer us a sweeping view along this tropical coastline. The people on the beach animate the scene and offer a sense of scale. The image has good colours and sharpness and very good sharpness throughout.

Lep pogled na plazu sa ljudima i more sa talasima na vodi ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo pokazano mesto i trenutak, lepe boje.
Lepo mesto pored mora za setnju.

never been to Goa and it's therefore nice to discover how it looks like through your lens
Quite engaging I must say but yet I prefer the rest of India, deep inside !
Best regards, have a nice day

Fascinating landscape, captured with stunning POV, from a high point, which lets you see this pretty extensively coastline, beautiful the curling effect of waves, where foaming to get to the beach, the palm trees are very well positioned right image and give a great tropical charm to the image.
Nice day, giving a magnificent range of colors.
Lighting and sharpness, both are perfect.
Well done. I love the image.
Have a nice day.

A lovely seascape from a high vantage point. The colors are soothing and the surf brings some dynamism. It looks like there is considerable tide, I imagine those rocks are covered during high tide.

A great beach. right angle shooting. very nice natural colors. congratulations.

I like this bird's eye view of the beach, the white shapes of waves are very attractive, very nice płace to visit

Tutta la bellezza dell'oceano e del verde del continente indiano condensati in una splendida composizione.
Colori straordinari e nitidezza eccellente.
Ciao e buona serata

Une image qui fait plaisir a regarder, j'aime le POV, plongeant et profond a la fois, bien cadrer par les palmiers, la prise des vagues douces, un endroit très agréable
cornejo (34626) 2014-02-03 11:12

What a super beach we here a lot of this area with European people holidaying here. Only a few in the water, most with longs trousers on I am assuming it is winter time.
Great birds eye Pov, super colours, Tfs,
pierrefonds (59412) 2014-02-03 17:46
The distance between the beach and the horizon is giving depth to the composition. You have captured well the power of the waves and the action at the beach. The good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colours. Have a nice day.
Didi (58442) 2014-02-03 23:58
Good dominant point of view
I suggest you to frame the horizon line on the third upper part to give more importance to the foreground like on my WS
mirosu (15126) 2014-02-04 5:22
Beautiful view of blue Arabian Sea. Excellent composition with the wide beach and nice green palm trees, what a color contrast. The people on the beach add nice life to the scene. Well done.
Miguel82 (26288) 2014-02-05 6:25
One of my favorite place when I go in Goa, the sea isn't attractive to bathe as it's muddy with so many rivers as Chapora. Spagetti beach isn't so far from here, you took the picture from the hill where there is the parking for cars and motorbikes, pleasant hues, high definition and good pov, warm regards Subho
marina7 (8055) 2014-02-05 10:27
how can I not love this? Fantastic capture of the Arabian sea waves that I loved so much while staying in Goa, amazing vast perspective and perfect colors!
I didn't travel to the north and I see the sand is gray here as if of volcanic origin. There were golden beaches in southeren Goa where we stayed, loved the place.
Thanks for the excellent picture and best wishes!
fabbs99 (16813) 2014-02-05 23:41
Wonderful image of the North Goan beach with blue waters.I love Majorda Beach in South Goa near Colva for its serene environment.TFS.

TE has really opened up my eyes to a new and different side of India...mountains and beaches are also here in this interesting country :)
you took advantage of a great point of view.
great post for TE
Kamilutka (8103) 2014-02-07 3:40
that is a very nice picture taken from quite high POV. That gave the photo really nice view and wide panorama towards the beach. The tiny silhouettes of the people indicate how high you had to climb to take this picture. I like the palm trees in the corner which frame the composition neatly .
Well captured waves. Very good colors and well given sharpness.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice day
Gigidusud (17615) 2014-02-07 13:38
Splendid view on the beach with great depth and nice framing. A real paradise place, I like it!
ourania (35120) 2014-02-08 12:10
I like very much the wide and comprehensive view that has included a fascinating seascape and as much of the two beaches as possible. The palm trees, the low vegetation and the rocks define the character of the shore superbly. There's great clarity and the light makes the colours and the atmosphere vivid and agreeable. Coming from Greece, I'm not used to seeing so many people standing along the beach with their clothes on:) The beach looks like a natural promenade to me:) Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
