'''Vagator''' is a village in [[North Goa]], [[India]].
Adjoining the famous [[Anjuna|Anjuna beach]], Vagator is a little more laid back, though still pretty much steeped in the rave culture. The tourist traffic is predominantly Western backpackers, however it has also become popular with Indian tourists, who particularly come to watch the sunset from the rocks.
Vagator is located approximately a one hour drive from the Dabolim Airport. A prepaid taxi to Vagator will be about Rs. 1,250.
Nearest The nearest railway station is at Tivim. Other railway stations are at [[Margao]] and [[Vasco da Gama]].
==Get around==
'''Scooters''' can be rented for Rs. 250 a day. Anywhere and everywhere you will find people trying to rent you their scooter. If you like a bike, a 350 CC Enfield would cost you Rs. 500 a day ( kick starting one of these can be an experience, learn how to do it frm from the owner if you want to rent one. The recoil from the kick can break your leg ) . This is the best way to see Goa, you can go where ever you want. And getting around is easy, locals are very helpful just pull over and ask someone.
In case of a '''taxi''', going anyplace the taxi drivers will start quoting from Rs. 250 to 400. Have to bargain.

Vagator Beach has dramatic red cliffs looking down on the shore and two fresh water springs within a stone's throw of the sea. Vagator Beach is split into two main beaches by a seaside headland which holds the car park and lots of stalls selling trinkets, clothes, soft drinks and snacks. As you face the sea, on your right is Big Vagator Beach and on your left Ozran Beach, more commonly known as Little Vagator Beach.
