Goa Tourism - The Best Time to Visit Goa


Visitors: 148

Goa with its pristine beautiful beaches and tropical climate, which accounts for a temperate weather throughout the year, is an ideal place to spend your vacations. The best time to visit Goa is during the winters when the weather is cooler and pleasant and you can enjoy the weather, festivals, and night parties held at the various beaches making your trip to Goa a memorable experience of lifetime.

Since the months from November to March are also the months of peak season to visit Goa - the rates are fairly high and most of the hotels are booked to their full capacity. So it is advisable to book your tickets and your hotel rooms well in advance. Yes, Goa gets crowded in this season but this is also the time when there are lots of water activities going on the beaches of Goa. You can choose from surfing, water skiing, parasailing, jet skiing, and scuba diving among others.

If you want to enjoy the famous Goa Carnival then you can visit Goa in February as this is the time when the island is preparing for the festival and there is a festive spirit all over Goa.

In case you want to go on a budget holiday then you can visit Goa during summers. But be warned that the weather would be really hot and you won’t be able to hit the beaches. Though afternoons are really hot and you can visit the spice plantations to beat the heat evenings are pleasant so one can enjoy some quiet drinks on the beach.

Summer is also the season in Goa when the restaurants offer visitors heavy discounts on drinks, accommodations, sightseeing, and dinner. At this time you can visit the wildlife sanctuaries and spice plantations on the island. But be warned that the beaches will be deserted and you will have to check whether there are water activities around that time as the weather is really hot and humid. Yet summer can also be the best time to visit Goa for those tourists who don’t want to spend more money on accommodation and other facilities.

Travelling to Goa in summers? Then please do remember that you won’t be able to enjoy the beaches owing to the weather and although there are other things that you can do; Goa experience without spending time on beaches won’t feel the same.

Other than winter season, you can visit this quaint town post monsoons when every building and monument looks spick and span and there is greenery all around. For further information you can also contact Goa Tourism board to help you with the lodgings and best prices available.

In case you feel that you need a guided tour to all the places in Goa then you can contact the local tour companies in the town and work around a tour package that would suit your pocket.
