Goa in April
April in Goa is the end of the tourist season and the beginning of the dry season, which lasts two months. Compared with the previous months there is no appreciable increase in the maximum air temperatures, they remain around 32-33 ° C. But there's a rising minimum of up to 25-26 ° C, and due to the intense heat of humidity it seems even hotter. Feedback from tourists in April in Goa show that it is "hot and humid, but not unbearable, as in Thailand, for example".
About 12 hours of light per day, of which around 10 hours are sunshine. Probability of precipitation is negligible.
In Goa, there is an interesting phenomenon: immediately after the sunset the night turns to dusk. At the same time the air temperature decreases to a pleasant level below 27 ° C, and remains so until sunrise the next morning.
The sea is always warm (28-29 ° C), but the waves are getting higher, reminding us of the approximate Musona season. Nevertheless, it is possible to bathe, but with excessive caution. Equally to be reasonable in respect of solar radiation. In April the ultraviolet index (uv index) reaches the maximum value of + 11. In such circumstances, it is recommended to visit the beach in the morning between the hours of 10-11 o'clock and 2-3 hours before sunset. Be sure to have sunscreen, lightweight shoes for the beach and air-conditioned accommodation, or even equipped with powerful fans.
April is a great month for a beach holiday, after weary winters you require a large amount of sunlight. It is the time to correct your health and for that Goa offers excellent facilities. All resorts have ayurvedic clinics, offering a variety of procedures and treatments. Many vacationers visit yoga and meditation centers. If you choose April for your stay in Goa, set yourself for complete relaxation, comfort and perception of extraordinary energy to charge up in this country.
But most importantly, April is ideal for beach lovers with a more modest budget. On one hand, there's guaranteed sun and warm weather, and on the other, due to the end of the season, prices drop significantly, often by half. Everything is cheaper then: accommodation and services, transport and goods on the market and in the stores. The temporary tourist infrastructure disappears from the beaches and Shakes are getting smaller, and in some places they are all but gone. But there are also fewer tourists, so the choice of restaurants is satisfactory. The quality of the food is hardly worth mentioning as Goa always offers tasty, nutritious and freshly prepared food.
April is a great time for shopping maniacs. The nightmarket in Arpora is still open, most of the fruit and flea markets operate in exchanging mode, and the prices in the stores go down even though there is still a wide selection of products available. In April, there are no large-scale musical events and there are rarely any parties on the beach, but the top clubs do not close and offer a varied program, including a weekly party. A casino, sports centers, conducted cruises and sightseeing tours do also operate.
At the end of March and beginning of April Goa runs the largest Hindu festival called Shigmo, the local version of the Indian spring festival of Holi.
