Why visit Goa in August

In India, August is that time of year when the monsoon season is nearing its end. The beginning of August witnesses heavy showers and towards the end of the month, the showers reduce.

Picture this. It’s raining. The miles of beaches lying uncrowded and accompanied by nothing but greenery everywhere. Kids merrily running off to school with their tiny bags and there’s the incandescent aroma of roasted corn on a cob, coated with tangy lime and homemade masala. You know you’ve come to the right place.

Tourism in Goa in August

Goa in August does not see a huge influx of foreign tourists. But neither is it completely deserted, as Indian tourists pour in, mostly to the high number of festivals and public holidays such as, Independence day, Eid Ul Fitr, Parsi New year (Shahenshahi), Raksha Bandhan, Janmashtami and Shri Narayana Guru Jayanthi. Due to the monsoons, water sports along the Goan coast remain closed to avoid accidents.
