What To Wear In Goa ?

Goa's laidback vibe means that you can wear anything from a loose-fitting maxi dress to the beach to a chic bodycon to music festivals. Here's how to look in Goa, whether you're going on a day of sun-bathing or beach tripping at Palolem, or enjoying the vibrant nightlife of Baga.

Dresses For Women

1. Cover-up dresses

These can also be worn over swimwear if you're ready to get out of the sand. These are light and airy and perfectly match the humidity in Goa's climate. They don't need to be tied like sarongs. There are many styles available - ponchos, kaftans and kimonos.

2. Bikinis/Monokinis

A good swimsuit is necessary if you intend to get in the water. Goa is one the most conservative places in India when it comes to stylish beach clothes. Have you been working out hard? This is your chance to recoup your hard work and show off your achievements. High-waisted tankinis or bikinis can be a great alternative if you are uncomfortable in bikinis. If you don't want to be a walking star, make sure you only wear bikinis at the pool. Modernity is limited to Goa's beaches.

3. Sarongs


These wraparounds are great for beachy looks and can be worn over swimwear. A sarong can be transformed into a dress by adding style and comfort. You can tie them up in many different ways and they come in vibrant colours that will enhance your vacation mood. Sarongs can be found in every Goan beach market. They're a great bargain if you are willing to bargain.
