Resorts in Goa

If you are lucky enough to be arriving to Goa for a vacation or while traveling in India, you most certainly will have the pleasure of being a guest in one of the many Goa beach resorts. Whether you are traveling in the north of Goa or in south Goa, you will have a wide selection of resorts - more than a few inland, but mostly by the beach. To get to enjoy Goa Beach Resorts you must arrive during the season time, otherwise you will discover that most of the Goa / beach resorts and huts are not open, and you'll be able to accommodate yourself only in rented houses, and big 5 star hotels, mostly not on the beach. Goa season begins on October 15th and ends on the 15th of May. The variety of the beach resorts in Goa is almost endless. You can find anything from budget hotels, simple beach huts and rooms for rent, to luxury resorts, 5-stars hotels and boutique hotels.

Goa Season

During the peak in Goa season, which is around the holidays of Christmas and new year, you will have to book a while in advance, if you don't want to end up in a budget room while you pay up for a luxurious hotel. You will find the most popular Goa beach resorts on the beaches that are stretching from Arambol up in the north through Baga, Calangute, and Panjim to the most picturesque beaches in Goa of Agonda, Palolem, Patnem, and Colomb down in south Goa. You can also find indulging beach resorts at less toured, hidden gems, like the resort at Cola beach in south Goa.

South Goa Resorts

Goa huts

While at the north of Goa most beach resorts and beaches are crowded with youngsters that are seeking for action, in the form of parties, shopping and just being seen, you will find peace and quiet in the much more serene atmosphere of south Goa. Most of the beach resorts in south Goa concentrate on Palolem and Patnem beaches, while the slightly remote but rapidly developing Agonda beach is not falling far behind them. The resorts on those laid back beaches offer quite a few attractions for their guests, like professional Yoga retreats on their premises, day travels to nature reserves, farms and old cities, boat trips, and much more. The beach resorts on Palolem and Patnem are family and children friendly, and you will find rooms spacious enough and well equipped for a family of 4 or even 5 persons.

The best time to visit Goa

or The most popular time to travel to Goa

The best time to travel to Goa is between November and March, when the weather is dry and relatively cool, the sea is calm and clear, and all the facilities, from resorts and restaurants to beach shacks and parties, are open for business.

Goa Season

December and January are the most perfect - and popular - months to visit Goa, almost 100% rain-free with lovely cool mornings and evenings and hot beach weather during the day. This is the lucky Goan's winter!

Although the Goa ‘scene’ has slowed, some big music festivals are now regular fixtures at this time of year, as well as the best outdoor parties and big name DJs headlining at club nights. The weekly flea and night markets in north Goa are also at their busiest, with plenty of bargains to be had once you’ve mastered the Indian art of haggling, plus live bands and entertainment.

Goans, whether Christian, Hindu or Muslim, embrace Christmas, festooning everything with tinsel, whilst local school children try out their carol singing for tourists on the beach. Having a slap up seafood lunch under the tropical sun is certainly one way to get into the Christmas spirit, and New Year is no different in Goa to anywhere in the world, except that you can party with the warm sand between your toes under a sky full of fireworks.

Goa beach resorts

However, in terms of crowds, it is the busiest time, so the best Goa beach resorts get booked up early (by October many of them are full for the Christmas/New Year period) and some of the beaches, particularly in the north, get very overpopulated. However, in the south of Goa there are still plenty of more peaceful, crowd-free Goa resort options at that time of year.

Goa Off Season

February and March are great months to be in Goa, as the beaches slowly empty of tourists and room rates become more reasonable. From April until the monsoon rains break in June, the weather gets increasingly hot and humid (you may want to ensure that your room has air-conditioning at this time of year) and some beach places start to close. However, many resorts offer great rates at this time of year and you will sometimes have the remoter beaches practically to yourself!

October can also be a great time to visit to see Goa, vivid green after the monsoon and mostly free from other tourists, although there is still some occasional rain.

Goa Monsoon

And then there is Goa monsoon. Almost like clockwork, within the first ten days of June, the rains arrive. By this time all the temporary beach hut resorts have closed up and been removed and the only options for accommodation and eating are guest-houses and cottages of a more permanent nature, self-catering houses and apartments, and the large hotels dotted up and down the coast.

However, the rainy months of June to September have lots to offer providing you don’t mind monsoon storms or expect a beach holiday. The vegetation is green and lush, the rice paddies are planted and the seas wild and stormy. With activities more restricted to eating at local restaurants, enjoying vibrant festivals including Ganesha, and watching nature run riot, you can experience Goa like a Goan. Just remember to pack your raincoat!

Goa Weather

The following table shows the general weather in Goa month by month. However it’s important to remember that these are only guidelines and the weather in Goa may be surprising - hopefully for the better.

GOA INDIA

 

 

Travel to Goa India

Goa is India’s smallest state, with beaches that have been voted amongst the best in Asia. A lone Portuguese outpost for more than 450 years, Goa was only reclaimed by India in the 1960s - and the colonial influence is everywhere. Gorgeous (often crumbling) architecture, fusion cuisine and afternoon siestas make Goa India unlike any other part of India. However, the deservedly famous beaches, warm blue seas and magical sunsets over the Arabian Ocean are the main draw for visitors to Golden Goa.

Beach holiday in Goa

More than two million tourists flock to this beautiful 100km slice of the Indian coastline every year. Whether to enjoy water sports and swimming in the sparkling blue sea, take a boat trip to spot dolphins, or just relax on a sun bed with a good book, Goa is a premier beach holiday destination. Cool off with some fresh tropical fruit juices or an ice cold Indian beer, have a relaxing massage or join one of the many Goa yoga classes.

Nightlife continues in this relaxed vibe, with most people happy to slurp some sunset cocktails at one of the many beach shacks and enjoy an evening meal of freshly caught seafood at a table under the stars, near any Goa resort. If you’re looking for some entertainment though, check out WhatsUpGoa for listings of everything from live music and bands, to club nights, casinos and festivals.

Most beaches in Goa India will have a local town with banks, ATMs, travel agents, and shops selling everyday essentials, whilst beach sellers peddle sarongs and offer pedicures and henna tattoos. Serious souvenir shoppers should head to the weekly flea and night markets in north Goa, to haggle for anything from saffron and silver jewellery to sandals and sunglasses.

Holiday off the beach in Goa

Whilst famous for its beautiful coastline, Goa offers many more attractions to those willing to venture off the beach.

Nature in Goa

The extraordinary and abundant nature of Goa India is clear to see everywhere from the swaying coconut palms to the ubiquitous cows on the beach, but many people do not realise they are visiting one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world. Lush mountain ranges with dense green jungle and hidden waterfalls, and beautiful rivers and backwaters are all open to explore. Bird spotters will marvel at the regular sightings of kingfishers, sea eagles and kites, whilst on a trip to one of Goa’s Wildlife Sanctuaries you may encounter troops of monkeys or even an elusive leopard. Life also continues unchanged at many inland villages, with buffalo ploughing the paddy fields and local women drying spices in the sun.

History in Goa

Architecture and history buffs will also find that Goa has much to offer. From the UNESCO World Heritage cathedrals and convents found in the abandoned 16th century capital Old Goa, to the living and breathing colonial Latin Quarter in Panjim, Goa’s current first city.

The Lunch Club by KOKOindia offers a unique cultural experience ‘beyond the beach’, with a private tour of one of Goa’s grand mansions, and an authentic Indo-Portuguese lunch in a restored Palacio.

The Portuguese policy of destruction resulted in some of the present day Goan temples being unique in India, with domed roofs and white towers borrowing from both Muslim and Christian architecture. One of the most important is the beautiful Shri Mangeshi Temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva, whose deity was kept hidden during occupation until the temple could be rebuilt.

The Hindu temples poking out from the coconut palms alongside the white churches therefore becomes a great visual metaphor for Goa’s special heritage.

Goa Airport

Travelling to Goa

By plane

Goa Airport or Goa Dabolim airport, where both international charter and domestic flights land, is in the centre of the state, making even the most remote beaches less than two hours drive away. Many international scheduled flights land in Mumbai, an hour’s flight from Goa. Anyway, it is always good to have someone pre-arranged to pick you up in time and drop you directly in your resort in Goa.

By train

The Konkan train line has stations dotted along the length of Goa, although many faster trains only call at Margao (Madgaon) station, in the south. India’s trains are a cheap way of covering long distances in relative comfort, whilst experiencing the changing landscape outside the window. The network covers the whole country, if you plan on extending your Goa trip with a visit to the Kerala backwaters or the Palaces of Rajasthan.

By bus

Buses connect Goa to all the major cities, such as Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore, as well as to popular destinations for a trip from Goa, or Goa airport including Hampi and Gokarna. Just be prepared for the bumpy roads!

Getting around Goa

Your mode of travel once you arrive in Goa will depend on the distance to be covered and how much time you have. For short local journeys, hiring a bicycle or scooter or jumping in the back of a rickshaw are the best option, whereas for longer distances you can brave the local buses or arrange for a car and driver for the day.
