Postcards from Goa, Vol 3, Coastal Spell
Between the months of June and August, Goa’s monsoons are peaking. There is consistent rain every year, because Goa is on the Konkan coast of India. The rain clouds enter from the Arabian sea, towards the Western ghats and lead to showers of rain. The three beautiful rivers of Goa - Chapori, Sal and Zuari flow like no other season.
The lushness of Goa is incomparable; it is at its greenest during this time. The trees and rice paddies look all fresh and green. The waterfalls feel incredible and when the sun is out, you can see the birds basking in the sunlight to dry themselves off.
Both the North and South of Goa have their own charm. If music & multi cuisine food spots drive you, the North hits all the right spots and if you’ve come here looking for the solitude, gorgeous beaches and palm trees, you know where to go!
Overlooking the Mandovi river, right in the heart of Panjim there exists an area called Fontainhas that has colourful and fascinating sights. These Portuguese houses and vibrant streets of Goa are even more captivating during this season. You see the locals enjoying a fresh choriz poi & tea at the local bakeries that have been around since the 1800s.
