Last Minute Holidays to Goa

It's visited by thousands of tourists every year who are enchanted by its 66 miles of golden beaches, its Hindu temples and its fascinating churches.

The coastal areas are mostly flat but travel inland and the country rises to the rugged slopes of the Sahyadri Mountain Range. Goa has three seasons: winter, summer and monsoon. The winter season from November to March is without doubt to best time of year to take holidays in Goa as the weather is mild and pleasant making it perfect for sunbathing and exploring. However this is Goa's peak season.

The summer season from March to May is very hot, dry and sweltering; the afternoon heat may well keep you off the beaches but will be a great time for a siesta or sight seeing. The monsoon season between June and September brings lower temperatures, heavy rainfall and strong winds. The heaviest rainfall is in July and is a deterrent to visitors. You cannot enter or visit Goa without a Visa; these can be obtained in the UK from the Indian High Commission.
