Things to do in Goa in August
Although August is the peak month of Goan monsoons, there is still minimal rain that prevails there during this month. If you are someone who is looking to find a balance between gloomy and sunny and wants to relax just as much as you want to head out, then Goa in August is absolutely ideal for you. Our luxury private villas set the tone for a vacation that is just as much about indoors than it is about outdoors. Here is a rundown of things to do in Goa in August.
Revel in the beauty
Goa is one of the greenest parts of India, and it glows otherworldly during the rains. It is the best time to soak in the beauty that the greenery, palm trees, ponds, lakes, and rest of the city exhibit. Long strolls on sandy beaches under gentle showers and cool breeze accompany you for a splendid experience in monsoon.
One way to revel in the natural charm of Goa in its most beautiful form is to go on a hiking trail to one of the most popular spots. The hills of the Western Ghats are suitable for these hikes and treks where greenery marks every corner that you see. These adventurous escapades are more conducive in the latter half of the month when the rainfall is minimal.
Celebrate World Goa Day

This is held with some pomp and joyous activities in a true Goan style. Dances, music, food, traditions, and everything that makes them so unique, is celebrated with pride and enthusiasm.
