November to February is generally considered to be the best time to visit Goa. The weather is perfect, not very cold, not very hot. It's also a good time as almost all the beach shacks are open during these months. Water sports, like banana boat ride, jet ski, parasailing, etc. are also open to tourists during these months on most of the popular beaches. Lots of music festivals including the Sunburn festival happen around December and January. If you like being in the crowd and are looking for fun party time, this is the time to go to Goa. Goa is considered to be one of the best places in India to enjoy Christmas and New Year season as the entire Goa is full of festivity.
If you love monsoons, then the rainy season - June to September - might be a good option, except that a lot of places including beach shacks remain shut during monsoons. You won't be able to roam around a lot of beaches, but Goa is greener during monsoons and the internal part of Goa looks more beautiful.
March to May is generally hot in Goa with the temperature rising every month from March. These months are an off-season in Goa and you can enjoy cheaper hotel rates and rental rates for bikes and cars during these months. However, you should try to avoid these months, especially May, as the temperatures could go as high as 40°C. Some people could prefer these months if they are short on budget or want to enjoy a lesser crowded Goa.
