One of the main sources of Anjuna's enduring popularity as a hippy hang out is its superb beach.Fringed by groves of swaying coconut palms,the curve of soft white sand conforms more closely to the archetypal vision of paradise than any other beach on the north coast.Bathing is generally safer than at most of the nearby resorts,too,especially at the more peaceful southern end,where a rocky headland keeps the sea calm and the undertow to a minimum.
