Goa in June
Goa weather in June
Goa has a tropical climate and the weather here doesn’t change much throughout the year. The temperature in June in Goa is between 25-30°C. Between the months of June and September Goa experiences the monsoon season. During this time, there is heavy rainfall, often accompanied by strong winds. The average rainfall during this time is from 2500 mm to 3000 mm. The humidity, however, is higher this month because of the cloud cover.
Tourist in Goa in June
There are very few tourists in June. So the beaches are mostly empty, and you will find almost no shacks on the beach. Goa is greener during this season and more peaceful. All the hotels, resorts, villas offer great discounts during the rainy season and you will also see a huge drop in flight fares.
During this month, you will not see many foreign tourists. However, beaches like Baga, Candolim, Calangute, and Anjuna are crowded throughout the years, mostly by Indian tourists.

Recommended App and Booking Sites
Hotel Booking Sites: I first look for a decently located hostel or hotel in booking.com which has 8+ rating and 50+ review and then check its price in MakeMyTrip and book accordingly. I do find some hotel prices are very high in booking.com and comparatively low at MMT. Hotelscombined also gives a decent deal from time to time.
Trekking Trips: You can join any such group and take part in trekking events. Goa Hiking Association and Youth Hostel Association of India – Goa are popular clubs here for trekking and adventure activities.
