Reading Time: 6 minutes

If you’re a solo traveler or unwillingly being forced to do solo because of the WhatsApp group that had canceled all your plans. Then no need to worry as I will guide you to make your solo trip to Goa awesome and solo worthy. But just don’t cancel anything right away.

JUST don’t!

Every solo traveler was once a group traveler who would have either been forced to travel alone or generally does according to his/her interests.

Which one are you?

But no worries, whosoever you’re, “Goa is ON”

Going Goa Alone has its energy & enthusiasm that only a Solo going can understand.

I heard a BIG YES.

To make a month or even a few days worth remembering & that too a solo trip to Goa. Then, you need to follow your heart. Yes, that Dhak – Dhak heartbeat telling you to leave.

I had mentioned below the four pillars of travel, everything revolves around these points if you had noticed closely.

If you can manage to control these points somehow then you’re awesome, to be honest.

i.e.

  1. How to get around
  2. What to see around
  3. Stay
  4. Food

One month is quite a long time to live in a different city. You have to manage your expenses side by side apart from making an exciting solo trip to Goa. So that you don’t end up getting budget exhausted.

How to Make an Exciting Solo Trip to Goa for a Long 1 Month?

Everything starts with getting out, so we’ll be starting with –

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’re the first time to goa your heart would 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’ll hesitate a bit to explore faraway beaches unless & until you heard something very out of the box that your nearby beach doesn’t have.

I hope that you’re getting my point here.

i.e. Exploring every beach in Goa would cut short to a handful of beaches that you’ll hear about.

I had tried to explain about some of the beaches categorizing them into different types below in the points.

For e.x:

I.If you love Peace on the Beach

The 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 love Crowd on the Beach

The Arambol beach & Morjim Beach is fully packed with tourists from all over the world. You might also bump into someone you know during New Year’s.

III.If you want to experience Adventure on the Beach

There are other two North Goa beaches Vagator & Baga Beach that has water adventure activities that might excite you to visit there.

I hope you understood what I was trying to explain here that after visiting a handful of beaches you will look for something that will attract you as a visitor. Something that can add value to your experience.

Every beach has sand where you can leave your footprints behind, 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 we are on the point that human nature tends to attracted which can add value to their life. This will ultimately make you feel to discover more in your Goa alone trip.

Not just beaches to explore but a whole world outside as well.

2. Travel Affordably & Conveniently around Goa Alone

People just love saving, but when it comes to traveling around then nothing can come in between.

You might agree here with me that if you have Rs.100 & you have to choose between exploring as a tourist vs exploring like a local in the city. Then you might slightly lean towards a local lifestyle. But only a handful of people ends up traveling like a local.

On your month-long Solo trip to Goa, you’ll surely need to travel goa on a local bus which will give you more freedom to use your budget wisely.

What are your suggestions for traveling on a local bus?

3. Staying Alone in Goa

The third main point among the four main pillars of travel. If you will stay somewhere let’s say in a hostel for a month. There’s an excitement missing at this point, remembered what’s the title says.

Yeah, exciting month alone in Goa

What if you would get a chance to Volunteer in a hostel, sounds cool?

This would be a very excellent decision in your Solo trip to Goa.

Going Goa alone does not mean that you just remain to yourself and don’t talk with anybody around. This would be the option where you can even take people out to see the city around.

Sometimes even if you are not willing to go around on the bus. If any of the hostel’s people have rented a scooter then they also can drop you around. Quick and Easy.

From Interacting with the people to sharing unheard stories that’s where the thrill resides in going Goa alone.

How can you find Volunteering opportunities in Goa?

This is something you need to make an effort to find 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. That’s how it goes. The tasks and responsibilities will be assigned to you, just give your best and have fun.

4. Food Options in Goa

How is it like to eat the same thing that you can find in your home city?

Sounds a bit off to me!

Trying the local homemade food would bring excitement. In Goa, you can easily find the local restaurants that will offer mouth-watering dishes.

Now here’s the point, You cannot take the food lightly. Just remember that this article has been focusing on one long month and you don’t want to come back home in a week right!

After all, you’ll also need to make your Goa Solo Trip budget under control.

Let me tell you that local Goa restaurants have a thali system.

For e.x – Between a Fish thali or a Veg thali. The thali will cost you less than Rs.100-Rs.120 per person. You can check out my other blog that talks about How to Save Few Bucks in Goa on Food in detail.

I will be honest with you & normally share these tips on my other blogs too.

If you’re a tight budget traveler then, you will need to sacrifice your comfort zone to make a trip filled with excitement & enthusiasm.

Conclusion

In the end, I just wanted to conclude that traveling alone to Goa or in any part of the city requires a different kind of approach to see around. After all, it’s the experience that matters the most.

If the article had helped you in anyhow then don’t forget to share and follow the blog.

Until then happy traveling & see you on the roads.
