What is the Best Time to Visit Goa?

From November to February, you will find the beaches shining under a clear blue sky; it’s an ideal time to visit Goa. The temperature during this time ranges between 20 and 30 degrees Celsius, and it is also Goa’s peak tourist season. If you enjoy going to the beach during the rains, the monsoon season lasts from June to September. Summer is not the best season to visit Goa. From March to May, the weather is extremely hot and humid, with temperatures ranging from 25 to 35 degrees Celsius.

We took this trip after the Pandemic lift up. It was impressive how people were very cautious and careful in their hospitality mainly in hotels. These are some of the best tourist attractions in Goa to visit with your loved one. However, it is critical to book hotels online prior to departure. Rent a lenient and flexible travel guide who can make sure that you are not leaving any must-visit destinations with your lover. The trip was exhilarating for us and we wish you good luck on your trip too!
