It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Goa

Peak Season: November to February

You’ll pay a pretty penny during these four months, but it can be worth it to see the coastal city at its prime. During these “winter” months, Goa tends to stay pleasantly cool compared to its more humid neighbor, Mumbai.

Off Season: March to August

Goa empties out except for a few lingering backpackers, which makes for a tranquil stay at a fraction of the price. However, many restaurants and shops also shut down during this time, especially during the June-August monsoon season.

Sweet Spot: August to October

As the monsoon season draws to a close, Goa’s greenery comes alive. If partying isn’t high on your agenda, you’ll be able to enjoy the beaches – and the peace and quiet – before the high season starts up again.
