Why Visiting Goa in April is a Good Idea

Walking on a Goan beach with moist sand cushioning your feet and the melodious beats of the waves dashing on the shore. There is no other sound to interrupt your solitude and you see the sun going down, almost submerged in the sea. After the tranquil sunset, you go for a nice dinner in one of the shacks that line the beach and admire the beauty of the coastal town with billions of stars twinkling in the sky. Sounds like a perfect Goa trip, right? However, in reality, the beaches are crowded and you usually don’t get any tables in the restaurants during the peak season.

If you are looking for the right time to be in Goa while avoiding the crowds, then visiting Goa in April is the best thing you can do for yourself this year. Goa is one of the most sought-after holiday locations in India that welcomes tourists from across the world. Winters are the preferred time to visit Goa, but the presence of large crowds means visitors who like isolation will find themselves overwhelmed. This is why we are going to talk about going on a Goa trip in April. Read on to know why it could be the best decision for an incredible experience.

During April, the Konkan region is relatively hotter with the average temperature lingering around 33 degrees Celsius during the day and 26 degrees Celsius during the night. As April hits the calendar, the winter and spring festivals get wrapped in Goa and calmness overtakes the state. Although the weather is a bit hot during the midday, pleasant mornings and evenings compensate for all the heat.

You can easily find accommodation and food at relatively cheaper prices as compared to the peak season. Still not convinced to plan your Goa trip in April? Let us give you a few more reasons.

When it comes to Goa and its beaches, water sports are a must-do. The added benefit of doing water sports in Goa in April is that there are no crowds which means you can do more activities at less cost and, of course, no long queues. Since there is almost no rainfall in Goa during April, the sea is calm, which gives you the opportunity to spend time in the deep waters. Some of the activities that you can do when in Goa are snorkelling, scuba diving, sailing, kayaking and speed boat rides.

Goan summers have long bright days, and the flora and fauna come to life as spring has just ended. Though Goa is associated with beaches and nightlife, that is not all that it offers. You can explore the beautiful waterfalls and wildlife in peace as there won’t be many people between you and your search for solitude. Some of the waterfalls that you can visit in Goa are Dudhsagar, Arvalem, Sada and Netravali.

Goa is also home to intrinsically built churches and forts that account for a memorable time spent admiring Portuguese architecture. Since April is not the peak season, you can embrace the beauty of these places without treading through the crowds.
