Any time is a good time to visit Goa. But taking a Goa trip in summer is an especially good idea for a variety of reasons. It is the off-season which means visitors can find almost unbelievable deals on activities, the usual crowds will be absent which means you can partake in activities at your own pace and not rush because there’s a whole host of people waiting for their turn, and of course getting some respite from the tropical heat by cooling down in the Arabian Sea.
Goa in summer is an absolute delight and visitors can enjoy off-season prices on nearly everything like discounted flight tickets and accommodation options. You can also enjoy memorable personalized services as you would not be just another one among the millions of tourists who visit during peak season.
There are innumerable watersport options available across Goa’s many beaches and they are the best things to do in Goa in summer. Jet skiing, white water rafting, scuba diving, kayaking, parasailing, the list goes on and on, and there is something for everyone. Don’t forget to wear sunscreen because the searing summer sun can be brutal on your skin.
Summertime is when mango - the king of fruits and India’s national fruit - is in season. Around this time, festivals like Goa Mango Festival and Goa Cashew & Coconut Festival are held to celebrate the arrival of these delicious treats which ensures that this is the best time to visit Goa in summer. Goa is also home to many other religious festivals throughout the course of the year.
Goa is home to a large number of historic monuments like churches and forts. Guests visiting these architectural marvels during the summer months can take advantage of the lack of crowds and spend as much time as they want at these sites instead of being ushered away to give way to the next tour group. Some locations that are unmissable are Aguada Fort, Chapora Fort, Basilica of Bom Jesus, and much more.
The southern half of Goa is usually the quieter half, even during peak season. During the off-season, it is absolute bliss for guests who want to enjoy a quiet getaway by the sea. Come revel in this bliss during your stay at Heritage Village in Cansaulim and get treated like royalty during the summer months.
