Goa is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing, rejuvenating and tension free holiday. You can visit this lovely place anytime of the year, though you may want to avoid the monsoons. It rains quite heavily over here thus making transportation a bit cumbersome. Else, the best time of the year that can be called the peak season for Goa travel is from October to March. The place is blessed with maritime climate which makes almost the entire year the ideal time to visit Goa!
Right after the monsoons the weather becomes even more pleasant, the
skies clear up and the seas become placid and calm. Every monument and
every building looks like it has been washed spick and span. There is
not a speck of dust on trees and they look lush green. The summers here
are a bit harsh with maximum temperature going upto 35o Celsius. Winters
can hardly be called winters as the minimum temperature does not drop
below 18o Celsius. The weather is just perfect to enjoy your vacation
During monsoons, Goa receives an average annual rainfall of 2500 - 3500
mm. Though one can visit Goa during monsoons, the weather becomes humid
and transportation becomes cumbersome. You wouldn't want to be stranded
at the airport praying that a taxi comes and takes you safely to your
hotel! It is not advisable to visit the beaches during monsoons as the
sand becomes very sloshed and the sea turns a bit violent. Thus visit
Goa right after the monsoons from October - March and experience Goa in
its best form.
