Goa in July
In July the monsoon season in Goa is at full throttle. Generally, July is very similar to June and the first half of August: rains, high humidity, attractive prices for accommodation units and food, affordable luxury, quietness and placidity
The statistics shows an entire predominance of rainy days: in July we have about 27 rainy days with many rainfalls. The sun appears from behind the clouds rarely and for a short time; the air is hot (about + 28-35°C) and is saturated with moisture. The sea water is also warm but is not suitable for swimming as the waves are very high and the sea is roughing nearly all the time. However, you should take with you to Goa sunscreeners and summer clothing that will protect you from strong ultraviolet radiation and humidity.
The lovers of beach holidays and parties in the open air can be disappointed. Probably, there would be a chance to swim in tender sea waters and enjoy sunbathing as often it’s not raining all the day but, however, don’t expect to spend your holidays at the beach. Same as in June, the beach infrastructure even in large famous resorts is limited, and in some places is almost completely absent.
Though, it doesn’t mean that there are any reasons not to visit Goa in July. If you organize your vocations carefully, choice the right variant of accommodation and think well about the possible tour itinerary around Goa, you can have good chances to turn a usual holiday into the really unforgettable and amazing journey. By the way, in summer there is a large selection of various accommodation units, so even the low-budget tourists can afford themselves high class housing at quite democratic prices.
You should also remember that Goa is a completely different world. This is a tropical state with a very beautiful nature, magnificent and rich greenery everywhere, unexplored new culture and huge variety of historical monuments. Here you can feel yourself in a real unity with nature, and take care about your health and spiritual harmony. Many people are coming to Goa during summer for this reason. Goa has several good Auverda clinics. Many resorts offer their guests to take different yoga courses and to participate in a group meditation.
What else can you do in Goa? If you like sport than you should make a journey on foot to the waterfalls (the most famous one is Dude Sagar) or try rafting on the river Mhadei. Those who are interested in cultures and history of different countries of the world can visit the Old Goa, Hampi, Hindu temples of Pond and Old Portuguese fortress. And those who are fond of shopping are welcomed in shops and boutiques of Panaji (Panjim) – the capital of Goa.
