Safil's Beach Shack on Baga Beach was one of my favorite places to hang out in Goa. We took a late nap and woke up around 9:30 PM before heading out on Halloween. There were some people dressed up and others with just a basic light up prop. Our AirBnb hostess told us that the expats up north in Arpora go nuts and get fully dressed up because most of them are western. We were invited to a party but opted to stay in Baga beach since the taxi ride was another 20 minutes away and we didn't bring any costumes.
Baga beach is a quick 10 minute walk from our hotel down Tito's lane where there is a plethora of shops, restaurants and bars. It reminds me of Pub Street in Siem Reap, Bar street in Faliraki but not as raucous as Bangla Road in Patong.
