WHEN TO GO
Beach-friendly temperatures are the norm all year round in this part of the world. The mercury hovers between the mid-20s and low-30s, and after sunset things don’t tend to drop much below a comfortable 18 degrees. If you don’t like humidity, it’s probably best to avoid coming here in late spring, when it’s at its highest. When it comes to rain, Goa gets daily downpours between June and September, while the rest of the year it only sees the odd shower here and there.
