Taking one of our Goa last-minute holidays is a great chance to grab some winter sunshine without breaking the bank. Known as The Pearl of the Orient, Goa enjoys temperatures of between 25° and 30°C pretty much all year round, and rain is practically unheard of outside the monsoon season, which runs from June to September. So a winter trip is a perfect way to top up your tan and escape the gloomy December and January skies back home. Goa's beaches are gorgeous expanses of soft sand, lapped by unbelievably blue waves and all our late deals to Goa put you within easy reach of the beach. You'll find Calangute the busiest destination, complete with all the modern amenities you'd expect. Fancy something a bit more laid-back? Head to Anjuna beach to soak up the hippy vibe and enjoy a bit of boho shopping at the famous Wednesday market. If you prefer something well away from the crowds then Mandrem beach is a good option, with a distinctly more blissed-out feel. Getting to your favourite beach is easiest by taxi, or you could plunge into local life and take a bus; just be prepared to share your journey with a chicken or two! The best thing about our great value holidays to Goa is that they leave you with plenty of spare cash to get out and about. You could visit the UNESCO world heritage site, Basilica Bom Jesus, to marvel at frescoes and relics, take a trip up the Mondovi river to explore the jungle, or spend the day spotting exquisite birds at Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary. A great evening out is a big part of your Goa holiday, and you'll find it easy to enjoy an evening that's perfect for you. There are plenty of restaurants serving a variety of food including famous Xacuti and other delicate coconut-based curries, or flavoursome Chicken Cafreal. After dinner, you can choose a romantic beachside bar, discover the wild side of Goa at one of its famous clubs on Baga Beach, or head to your hotel to check out the entertainment there. Whatever you're looking for from your cheap deals in Goa, we're sure you'll find the perfect blend of relaxation and exploration, as well as plenty of that all-important sunshine.
