Goa is India’s smallest state in terms of area, but it is also one of its most beautiful. With 105 kilometers of beautiful coastline, it has a beach for everyone. From the backpacker hotspots of Arambol and Anjuna in the north to the vibrant yet laid-back Palolem in the south and the package holiday resorts of Baga and Calangute, you’ll be able to find your ideal beach.
Goa, in my opinion, is one of the finest places in India for backpackers. It’s simple to cross paths with other travelers, it has a lively nightlife scene, and it’s simple to get around.

Best Time to Visit Goa
From November to February, Goa’s weather is generally dry and warm, making this the best time to visit Goa. This is also peak tourist season; if you visit during the off-season, you may not have as much to do.
However, during Christmas, and New Year’s, prices will skyrocket and lodging will be scarce. Goa trip should be avoided during this time unless you want to spend Christmas and New Year’s there.
There are also many Indian public holidays, which will likely send a large number of people to the beach for a few days. You should also avoid the summer months of March to June as the temperature here will go high which can hamper your plans. If you want to enjoy the rain while sitting on the beach, you should visit in the monsoon months of July-September.
