1. Are beach shacks and market closed in Goa in summers?
The majority of beach shacks and markets are closed during May-June and the place can become a little solitary. The place virtually shuts down and there are hardly any water sports. But the business starts to pick up again in late June.


2. When is Goa the most pocket-friendly?
A.  The weather of the place is pleasant throughout the year but the peak season when the tourist is high in Goa is from October to January. So anytime not October to January is comparatively cheaper.
