What’s the Perfect Time to Enjoy the Sun, Sea and Yacht Club?

Hello Readers! Welcome to the Champions Yacht Club blog. This post will throw light on the best time and season to visit Goa and enjoy the beach, forts, or for a yacht vacation. Let’s dig in!

It goes without saying that Goa is one of the most loved tourist destinations in India. During summers, sip on a tropical drink, during monsoons, enjoy the spice gardens, and during winters, enjoy the sun falling softly on your skin and the golden sand cooling your feet. By far, according to tourist inclinations, the last option is loved the most.

In a nutshell, winter is the best time to visit Goa.

Sunrise in Goa

During winter, this little tropical paradise becomes extremely mild and pleasant. The peak season starts from early October and stays the same till the mid of March. If you visit Goa anytime during these five months, you can enjoy all three seasons i.e. autumn, mild winter, and spring, all blended into the fun and frolics of Goa. The temperature during this time ranges between 15°C to 25°C and the humidity being particularly low gives tourists ample time to enjoy the seaside as well as the nightlife.

It is during the time of winter that Goa welcomes thousands of holidaymakers with open arms from all across the world. Renowned events such as musical festivals, Christmas and New Year parties, winter carnival, are the most popular attractions of Goa if you are visiting during winter.

Almost all the hotels in Goa will be overflowing with travel enthusiasts looking for accommodations starting from last of the September month. Small seaside shacks and homestays are also becoming quite popular these days. In fact, many tourists are opting for homely and cozy homestays without the frills of luxury hotels as this gives them the pleasure of staying closer to nature.

Yacht Party in Goa

You can enjoy a yacht party in Goa, enjoy the Goan nightlife by visiting the local pubs, you can go on a trek to the nearby trails, or you can simply soak up under the winter sun. But don’t forget to hog on fresh prawns and crabs available in all local seaside eateries.

Tourists who have been to Goa during both peak summer and winter will be able to relate to the stark difference in the ambiance and climate change. Frankly, it is quite a striking contrast. If you don’t want to miss all the fun and action that is happening here, just pack your bags and come to Goa.

Now imagine this.
