Gokarna Weather And Best Time To Visit Gokarna
Gokarna is a beach destination near Goa that has remained untouched for the longest time. Its main attractions are its beautiful, pristine beaches. Summer is quite hot down at Gokarna and monsoon is the off season, with the rains and muddy tracks et al. If you want to choose an unhindered idyllic time for a tour, that includes plenty of hiking, trekking and going off on long nature walks, then the best time to visit Gokarna would be from October to March, that is, the district’s post monsoon and winter periods. The weather in Gokarna is brilliant at this point and makes for a wonderful holiday.
Summer months are rather hot in Gokarna, but chilling out at the beaches should provide a respite from the heat. The weather averages 19°C to 40°C. The heat gets tolerable as the sun sets and you must ensure that you have your sunscreen, water and hats handy until then. Lots of hydration is the key if you want to have a good summer in Gokarna. Most beach shacks close by the end of April though, that is how sultry it is.
Monsoon spells are quite heavy and that might make your travel and sightseeing plans cumbersome. Monsoon is not an ideal time for swimming in the sea by the beaches or indulging in any sort of water sports. But again, the sea looks the best in monsoon and you get off-season discounts on accomodation. The average temperature remains between 22°C to 29°C.
Post Monsoon (October-December)
There might be occasional rains from the northeast monsoon winds at this point. But the weather is generally warm and pleasant, marking the onset of post monsoon, a perfect time to travel to Gokarna for the beaches and the temples. The average weather hovers between 19°C-32°C.
Winter turns warm and pleasant and is a model time for trekking and exploring the town. The season brings in a lovely sea breeze and you’d love to laze around or sit in the shacks at the beaches, over a cup of hot coffee, cold beer and scrumptious seafood, watching the sunset. Winter is an ideal time for swimming or meditating by the rocks. Temperature ranges from 15°C to 34°C at this time; the most soothing range in Gokarna.
