STAY HAPPY & SAFE

During monsoons, the beaches in Goa tend to get very rough and the winds are also strong. Here are a few safeguards for you.

CHILDREN’S SAFETY

Children get very excited to run on the beach. Keep a close watch on them. If you find them missing, inform the lifeguards on the beach.

AVOID SLIPPERY ROCKS

Plenty of amazing beach shots await without the risk, not this one. Also, avoid going on the rocks around the beach as they turn deceptively slippery and may cost you your life.

NO UMBRELLAS ON BEACH

Yes, rains do call for an umbrella to be opened, but, in Goa, chances are due to harsh winds on the beach you could fly away with one (just kidding). Wear a raincoat instead.

SAY NO TO SWIMMING

It is always better to consult the Drishti lifeguards stationed on the beaches before you dip your feet in the sea waters.

CONSULT WEATHERMAN

Weather can be very fickle in Goa. At one time it can be pouring hard and the next dry as a bone. It is advisable to check the weather before heading to the beach.

BUY WATERPROOF POUCHES

Goa is all about taking picture-perfect photos with scenic backdrops. And how can you do that without your phones? Rains can damage your phones. Buy phone pouches to protect them.
