If you can control these points somehow, you are Awesome, to be honest.
- How to get around
- What to see around

You have to manage your daily Goa expenses side by side, apart from making an exciting Solo trip to Goa. Also, check you do not end up getting budget exhausted.
How to Make an Exciting 1 Month-long Solo Trip to Goa?
Everything starts with getting out, so:
1. Beaches to Explore in your Solo Trip to Goa
Do you know that there are 35 beaches in Goa?
It might be possible that many beaches have still not been listed anywhere & are left to be explored by humans.
If you are in Goa first time, your heart will want to explore every beach in Goa.
In reality, when you step out –
For e.x, You went to a nearby beach a few times. Then, you will hesitate to explore away beaches unless & until you hear something very out of the box that your nearby beach does not have.
I hope that you are getting my point here.
Exploring every beach in Goa would cut short a handful of beaches you will hear about.
I have tried to explain some of the beaches by putting them into different types below.
I.If you want peace on the beaches of Goa
Mandrem Beach in North Goa is very peaceful. You will not be going to find a lot of human gatherings there. It is present at the center of Arambol Beach and Ashwem Beach.
II.If you want to crowd on the beaches of Goa.
Arambol beach & Morjim Beach remains fully packed with tourists from all over the world. You might also bump into someone you know during New Year.
III.If you want to experience adventure on the beaches of Goa
There are two North Goa beaches, Vagator & Baga Beach. It has water adventure activities that might excite you to visit there.
I hope you understood what I was trying to explain; hereafter, visiting a handful of beaches, you will look for something that will attract you as a visitor. It can add value to your experience.
Every beach has sand where you can leave your footprints behind, and every beach has a seashore where you can walk along during the Sunset.
With Sunset, I just remembered a point that you must experience a walk along the seashore during Sunset. It will make you feel calm and relaxed.
So, human nature attracts people who add value to their lives. That will ultimately make you discover more in your Goa solo trip.
Goa has not just beaches to explore but a whole world outside.
2. Travel Affordably & Conveniently on your Solo Trip
People love saving, but nothing can be closed when traveling around.
You might agree that if you have Rs.100 & you have to choose between exploring as a tourist and exploring like a city local. Then you might slightly lean towards a local lifestyle. But only a handful of people end up traveling like a local.
On your month-long Solo trip to Goa, you will surely need to travel to Goa on a local bus, giving you more freedom to use your budget wisely.
What are your suggestions for traveling on a local bus?
3. Staying Alone in Goa
When you stay in a hostel for a month, the excitement is missing, as the title says.
Yeah, exciting month alone in Goa.
What if you would get a chance to Volunteer in Goa.
That would be a very excellent decision for your Solo trip to Goa.
Going to Goa alone does not mean that you remain to yourself and do not talk with anybody around. That would be the option to take people out to see the city.
Sometimes even if you are not willing to go around on the bus. If hostel people rent a scooter, they can also drop you around. Quick and Easy.
From Interacting with the people to sharing unheard stories, the thrill resides in the Solo trip to Goa.
How can you find Volunteering opportunities in Goa?
It would help if you made an effort to find it from your end.
You have to message & mail the hostels, actually a bunch of hostels. Then you will receive a few replies, and only a handful of them have an opportunity, and you choose amongst the ones how it goes. The tasks and responsibilities assigned to the volunteer in advance; give your best and have fun.
4. Food Options in Goa
What is it like to eat the same thing you can find in your home city?
It sounds a bit off to me!
Trying the local homemade food would bring excitement. In Goa, you can easily find local restaurants that will offer mouth-watering dishes.
Now here is the point, You cannot take the food lightly. Remember that this article focuses on one long month, and you do not want to return home in a week.
After all, you will also need to make your Goa Solo Trip budget under control.
Let me tell you that local Goa restaurants have a thali system.
The thali will cost you less than Rs.100-Rs.120 per person. You can check out my other blog. It discusses how to Save Few Bucks in Goa on Food in detail.
I will be honest and share these tips on my other blogs.
If you are a tight-budget traveler, you will need to sacrifice your comfort zone to make a trip filled with excitement & enthusiasm.
In the end, I just wanted to conclude that a Solo trip to Goa or any part of the city requires a different approach to seeing around. After all, it is the experience that matters the most.
