Who wouldn’t love a nice break from the routine during summer?. People often crave wintry weather to escape the summer, but summer destinations need not be only hill stations. There are sun-laden places which can offer a unique break during summers. One such fantastic place is Goa. Renowned for its beaches, churches, parties and laid-back lifestyle, though the mercury rises in summer, Goa compensates in other areas. There are some unique features which make Goa a hot favourite even in summer.

1. Wallet friendly summer

Summer trip to Goa costs half of what it costs for a winter trip. Surprising? During winter Goa is full of tourists that a normal hotel room costs quite high. Understandably, ticket prices also soar up. So for those who are working on tight budgets, summer is the best season to enjoy this beach paradise.

2. Privacy and Freedom

For those who love seclusion and breathe freedom, Goa is less crowded in summer. All the international tourists would usually begin in second half of the year which is peak season. So if you want some serenity, it is best to visit Goa in summer. Beaches are less crowded this time of the year. Imagine, spending the evening on a beach with a loved one, with not much of a crowd – sounds magical, doesn’t it?
