Goa: Pearl of the Orient

Goa is India’s richest state, distinguished as one of the country’s best tourist destinations for both local and international visitors. Although it was formerly associated with backpacking holidays, nowadays a hefty percentage of all foreign visitors to India enjoy a stay in Goa.

Goa has a tropical monsoon climate, with rain arriving in early June to provide welcome respite from the heat. The best time to visit Goa is in the winter between November and March, when the temperature hovers comfortably in the 20s and humidity is moderate.

If you’re interested in perusing bustling markets overlooked by grand colonial architecture, book one of our Goa holidays this year by filling in your flight dates and clicking “Find my holiday” to view our latest deals.

Discover a unique side to India

Much more than just a hippy hangout, Goa has certain features that set it apart from the rest of the country as a paradise retreat. Its Portuguese heritage is still visible in Catholic churches and military forts, while Hindu temples and shrines reflect several millennia of holy history.

Step into history
Old Goa is another prime destination that was once the location of the state capital. Marvel at magnificent architecture in this designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, dotted with cathedrals and temples.

Enjoy natural wonders
Wide beaches, hidden peninsulas, palm groves and rice paddies are just a few elements of Goa’s natural beauty. Hike the jungles and forests of Goa – which constitute one-third of the whole state – and venture to waterfalls like Dudhsagar and Aravalam, which are well worth the climb.

Shop for local gems
The markets in Goa attract traders from all over the country to haggle and barter, and the atmosphere is animated, even if you’re not looking to buy! The Anjuna flea market and nearby beach strip are popular hangouts for the club-and-bar crowd.
