Goa and the Monsoon
Goa and the Monsoon
By Stacy Green / filmsforaction.org

Welcome to Goa’s sandy beaches, the tourist companies say. You’ll enjoy the sand, and you’ll enjoy the waves. However, there is one thing that prevents foreigners from flocking on an all-Indian resort whole year round, and it is the monsoon. Monsoon is also known as the rainy period when the buzzing activity of the golden coast subsides, the tourists are not exactly flocking, and you can experience the beauty of Southern India all by yourself.

If you choose this unpopular time for your vacation, be ready to meet a lot of… Indian tourists in Goa! No Russians whatsoever (people say they love when it shines). It is humid and torrential in this part of India at the end of August, but the special, dim grandeur of the region adds expression to the overall cloudy landscape. Another useful advice for a first-time traveler would be to book hotel in advance, as the eager locals tend to occupy the nearest beaches even when it’s pouring. Incredible India! To meet more like-minded travelers, one should choose a simple hotel with no luxurious surroundings – they will only obscure the spectacular view of the sandy shore.

Despite the decline in local nightlife is obvious, some of the most active party lovers can still find pubs open, and the massive events take place in The Baga, Calangute and Candolim. Your every need will be catered in 24-hour restaurants, but our advice is to watch the weird-looking food – it is usually full of pepper and salt and spices a European traveler is unaware of. If you want to eat safely, turn to your hotel manager for help, so that you don’t have to worry about your dinner menu, as Indians are usually very cheerful and friendly. Help yourself with the fruit – they are incredibly delicious and exotic even for the monsoon time of the month.

According to the tourist impressions, some of the most beautiful sites Goa can provide is in the monsoon season, as the surroundings start to grow greener and greener, almost jungle-like. It is the first time you realize India is still unexplored, and wild, and natural in the most haunting and charming sense of the word. Moreover, going for a walk can prove a really unforgettable experience with all the luscious palm trees and unperturbed locals doing their business. It seems like India has the spirit of its own, and the more we see of it, the more we would like to discover. You can be all by yourself on the beach, and dive into the wildlife like a care-free downshifter. Here you go, travelers!
