3 Things to Do in Goa during Monsoon Trips

Published: 08/08/2013

Goa's proximity to the sea means that it enjoys a thoroughly temperate climate. The summers are not too hot and the winters are generally pleasant. The monsoon season can be wet with torrential rains from late July, early August to September end.

Tourism is generally slow during this time but if you look at recent trends, the rainy season of Goa has become quite a popular time. Nature is at its peak of greenery and the rivers and waterfalls are at their full force which makes the visit worthwhile. Rainy seasons are also crowd free and the general prices and rates of Goa hotels are quite low owing to off season and this considerably adds to the appeal.

Goa's Must-Visit-places for Aug/September Vacation

  1. Wildlife Sanctuaries - It is inland Goa that is the primary attraction plus the monsoons bring out the real culture of Goa to the forefront. The places to visit in Goa during this time of the year are its several wildlife sanctuaries beginning from the largest i.e. Mollem National Park to the smallest, the Bondla National Park. The latter is quite popular among visitors for its deer safari and a mini zoo. Here is a map of Goa's wildlife sanctuaries.

  2. Dudhsagar Waterfall - The greatest attraction of Goa during monsoons is the Dudhsagar Waterfall that is situated on the fringe of Mollem National park. The massive waterfall is at its peak during monsoons and the surrounding area is extremely beautiful. The waterfalls are 60 kms from Panjim and can be reached by train from the Margao railway station that is 46 kms away.

  3. Enjoy Goan food - Food is always a big attraction for Goa. Of course it is big in sea food but what is more exciting is the variety of food available in the various cities and beach towns. Viva Panjim at Panaji is an affordable and top rated restaurant serving Goan delicacies while Ritz Classic at Panjim/Panjim has the best Goan thali for Rs. 600 as mentioned in top 10 goan restaurants by TimeCity.

And yes, the beaches of Goa are always a big hit with the tourists and monsoon does not discourage visitors to enjoy the ocean. The popular beaches are Anjuna and Baga but the more serene are the Colva and southern Goa beaches.
