If your idea of a holiday involves silence, solitude, or chilling with your significant other, this is the best time to visit Goa. It is one holiday destination where you will never tire of the beautiful beaches. Warm sand, blue water and some of the most impressive places in the middle of nowhere, some of these Goa hot spots are otherworldly.

Goa’s monsoon season runs from June and August. But the rainfall in Goa starts in late May and goes on till September. Goa is on the Konkan coast, so the rain is heavy. Thunderstorms are not uncommon either. So, it is worth paying the higher prices and sticking to the dry season — there’s not much to do on rainy days except drink, chill near a water body, or cut off from the world at a beach property. Then again, that doesn’t sound so bad.

Ahead, check out all the incredible locations you can visit in Goa in the monsoon, and plan your getaway now.

And if you don’t want to book a flight or train to take a peek at these surreal Goan beaches, we’ve rounded up their best photos for your viewing pleasure. Be warned, you may be tempted to visit your favourite Goa beaches from this list after you see them.
