Bangalore to Goa by Road { Best Route by Car / Motorcycle }

Bangalore, Goa, Karnataka, Review, Tips

We travelled from Bangalore to Goa by road last weekend and as most people would do, we relied on Google maps. The route by car on Google Maps seemed fine most of the way, other than the fact that it took us through a village with dirt tracks for about 8 km. The ghat area, although beautiful, was painstakingly long.

It didn’t help that we were travelling from Bangalore to Goa by Road in the monsoon season. But I’ll again stress on the fact that any route you take from Bangalore to Goa by road during the monsoons will be refreshing and green. You can open your windows without a care in the world and smell the roses – figuratively.


There were four of us travelling from Bangalore to Goa by road in a Baleno with a 1 year old baby in a car seat. Owing to this fact, we were easy on the curves and the speed. We started at 1PM as we had planned a night cap in Hubali and weren’t very sure about how long the baby would stay strapped in the car seat. We took ample breaks for lunch, coffee and to just click some pictures on the way. We reached Hubali at 9 PM as we experienced a lot of rainfall on the way. Next, morning we started by 10:30 after breakfast and reached Goa by 4 PM at leisure.

The route we took from Bangalore to Goa by Road was as google maps suggested. You can see it below:

As mentioned before, this Bangalore to Goa route by car took us through a village on dirt tracks for about 8 km and wasn’t the very best route. Because of the rains, the expected time of arrival also kept increasing and wasn’t a short route either.

  • Hi, we are traveling tomorrow to Goa and we would like to take the first route that you suggested as per google maps. We are relying on Google too. But it current says, the road is closed, did you face anything similar? Like a detour near Ponda? Is that the village route you are referring to? This is the first time we are driving to Goa from Bangalore and would be better with the safer option.

    • There was no detour that we encountered. You can take the google map recommended route and you will get to Goa but in the recommended time. So take buffer… It is monsoon season so you’ll get further delayed if it rains.

      I strongly recommend the second route. It’s safer and straighter. Just trust it and go ! Lemme know which one you eventually chose and how your experience was. Happy travels !

  • Hi Shivani, I am Planning to Visit goa during Christmas . Can you please tell me how many kilometers of ghat roads we have to take during the same and if its safe to drive during night ?
