The days will definitely be hot and humid but there’s always a mild cool breeze at the beach and the sea calling you to take a nice long dip. Off season also means less crowd which in turn means that you can enjoy all the watersports and activities with ease without any rush to think about. Shop at the Anjuna Beach market without having to worry about the crowd and chill on the beach while you have your own little private party. So whether you’re at the Calangute beach or Arambol Beach you are going to be the boss. So take your camera and capture all the beauty behind the lens while you relax. You will probably find most of the shacks open till mid April. You could also check out what to do on a 1 day trip to Goa.
