The best time to book your holiday in Goa is between November and February.

What will the weather in Goa bring between November and February?

Why arrange your holiday in Goa between November and February?

  • November onwards is ideal for enjoying water sports
  • Quieter holidays can be booked in November and February, either side of peak season
  • Plenty of sunlight hours give you ample time to relax or explore

Best times to visit

Dry Season

From October until May, especially November to April, Goa sees very little rain. Days are hot and sunny, followed by cool, comfortable evenings. With more than 320 hours of sunshine, January is the finest month of the year. 

Rainy Season

Goa encounters the monsoon season from June to September. With heavy rainfall, higher humidity, rougher seas, and a lack of open facilities, this time of year is best avoided. July is the wettest month. 

Favourite Season

We particularly love Goa from November to March, when the sun shines everyday, rainfall is minimal, humidity is at its lowest, and evening temperatures are pleasantly cool. Check the calendar for colourful local festivals too.
