Pros and Cons of Visiting Goa in April

Pros Cons

Cheaper – There are fewer Indian and international tourists in Goa in April. There is thus a steep reduction in prices of almost everything – accommodation, restaurants, bars, water sports, and car/bike rentals. Even flight tickets cost less. Prices often go down by 30%, and sometimes even more. You will be able to save a lot of money this month.

Weather – April is one of the hottest months in Goa. Both the average daytime and night time temperatures are high. The humidity is also on the higher side. The afternoons can be particularly high, so try to stay away from direct sunlight exposure. It may also rain sometimes. Make sure that you use a sunblock lotion when you are swimming or spending time on the beach.

Beach & Sea – The beaches will be empty and cleaner as there are fewer tourists. You don’t have to jostle for a sundeck. There are no kids shouting and breaking the silence. There is little rain so the water is safe for swimming. The Arabian Sea will also be much cleaner in April.

Water Sports – Many of the water sports operators shut down in late March, only to open again in September after the monsoon. You can still ride the speed boat, banana boat, do parasailing, kayaking, and go on dolphin watching and sunset cruises. But the number of operators will be less.

Easy Bookings – You don’t have to worry about the availability of flight tickets. Similarly, most of the villas are available too in April. So you can plan a quick Goa getaway. For December, on the other hand, you will have to plan and book months in advance.

Beach Shacks – Many of the beach shacks will also be closed. Only the permanent structures are likely to stay open this month in the busier beaches – Baga, Candolim, and Calangute. Fewer beach shacks are likely to be open this time of the year in South Goa.

No Traffic – There is no better time to ride or drive on the roads of Goa. In peak season (between November and February), there is heavy traffic near Panaji, Calangute and Baga. You will have the roads to yourself and will love those long rides in April.

Limited Hours – On most days, it will be hot between 11 in the morning and 3 in the afternoon. It is difficult to stay on the beach or the sea at this time. Sightseeing might be uncomfortable as well. Try to make the best of the mornings and evenings.

Top 5 Things To Do In Goa In April

  1. The Beaches – There are so many great beaches in Goa that it is impossible to see them all in one visit. So select carefully. If you want an active beach with shacks and water sports, then visit Baga, Candolim, Calangute or Colva. If you want more nature, then choose Vagator, Cavelossim or Palolem. There are other good beaches too in the North and South. Remember, each beach has its own attraction. Just stay under shade between 11 in the morning and 3 in the afternoon when it is the hottest.
  2. Wildlife – Goa is not just about the beaches and the parties. Go to the interiors and you will find plenty of beautiful hills and forests to explore that are rich with wildlife. Choose from Mhadei Wildlife Sanctuary, Bondla Wildlife Sanctuary, Cotigao Wildlife Sanctuary, and the Mollem National Park. It will be very green and cool in the greens. Take a dip in a waterfall and feel the freshness.
  3. A Cruise – Do a sunset cruise with dinner on the Mapusa or the Mandovi River for a lifetime experience. There are luxury yachts on the Zuari River as well. Or else, you can go on a full-day or half-day dolphin watching or bird watching cruise. In these fantastic cruises, you will see a different side of Goa.
  4. Hot Air Balloon Ride – April is a great time for this new activity in Goa because the wind is stable this month. Balloon rides can get canceled if the weather is unpredictable. No chance of that in April. Go up into the air for a bird’s eye view of the sparkling coastline and the lush green fields. Balloon rides are organized early in the morning and late in the afternoon.
  5. Yoga or a Cooking Class – There are many yoga and meditation centers close to the beaches. They will still be open in April. Join a class or workshop and you will learn how to improve your health. As a bonus, you will be able to relax and de-stress. Alternatively, you can join a cooking class. Learn to cook authentic Goanese and Konkani cuisines.

Goa April Checklist – April is in the middle of the hot season in Goa. So make sure you have airy and light clothing to stay cool. Also include your cap, sunglass, and sunscreen lotion. Always apply the lotion and wear the cap and sunglass before going to the beach. Wear light clothing in the evening too.

Goa Festivals in April

  1. Cashew Trail – This unique festival has been held since 2012 to celebrate the cashew fruit through its journey from the farm to the table. April is the harvest season and thus the timing is perfect. There is cashew fruit stomping. You can also try Goa’s unique liquor that is made from cashew – Feni and Urrak.
  2. Easter Weekend Parties – There are special parties on the Easter weekend in the restaurants and beach shacks. Enjoy the special menu and lots of entertainment in the Easter Bash.
  3. Konkan Fruit Fest – The Botanical Society of Goa organizes this fruit festival every year between April 21 st and 23 rd. There are fruit eating and carving competitions. You can taste many fruits, including many rare ones. The festival is open between 10 in the morning and 8 in the night on these 3 days.

Accommodation in April

There are plenty of villas available on rent in Goa in April. This is the low season, so there are fewer tourists this time of the year. You can get good discounts as a result, sometimes 30% or even more. But the actual price will depend on the villa location. Many of the villas you will find in our website are beachfront properties, while others are located in a nice and green neighborhood. Some of the Goa villas are just a few minutes’ walk away from the beach. Typically, beach front villas cost more.

Check the pictures and read the descriptions of the villas. It is good to decide where you want to stay – North Goa or South Goa, and then find the villas in these locations. In the villas, you will find private swimming pools with sundecks, pool side gardens, barbecue, large rooms with comfortable beds, modern bathrooms, security, parking, DVD player, coffee machines, juicers, and much more.
