Ozran beach, Vagator (Goa)

Located just after Anjuna Beach in North Goa, close to Vagator, Ozran beach is a small but very picturesque beach.

This beach is a true example of a sweet fruit after hard work, as one needs to climb over a hill to get to the destination.

But the view and the experience surpasses the efforts, as one can sunbathe on the beach or go for a quick dip in the water or simply watch the colours of the sky change at sunset. The beach offers a number of beach shacks for travellers to enjoy and outside the shacks are beach beds to relax or get a tan.
