Summer (March to May): The Off-Season

Summer might not be the best time to go to Goa due to high temperatures ranging from 25°C to 35°C, but it has its charm, especially for budget travellers. The beaches and tourist spots are less crowded, offering a peaceful experience, and significant discounts on hotels and flights are available. Early mornings and late evenings are ideal for water sports and beach activities despite the heat. It's also a great time to visit waterfalls and wildlife sanctuaries like Dudhsagar Falls and Cotigao Wildlife Sanctuary. Our air-conditioned rooms in Morjim provide a comfortable escape with stunning views. 

Monsoon (June to September): The Green Season

The monsoon transforms Goa into a lush green paradise, making it the best time to travel to Goa for nature lovers and those seeking tranquillity.

Dudhsagar Falls are at their most majestic, and unique Goan monsoon festivals like Sao Joao offer cultural insights.
