About Cavelossim:
Sleepy Cavelossim village is located on a narrow peninsular on the one side is the peaceful, lazily meandering River Sal and on the other 20 kms of powder white sand beach and the Arabian Sea.Imagine a place where you can watch the sunrise over the river and the sunset over the sea - the perfect idyllic retreat! It comes as no surprise that this prime spot has been chosen as the location for several five star hotels including The Holiday Inn and The Leela Palace. The original fishing community is still here and small fishing boats still go out to fish everyday. Cavelossim is a small typical Goan village with a picturesque church square and a small store and a telephone shop.There is a ferry from the village over the river to Assolna. There is plenty of choice for eating out as some of the best hotels in Goa are located in the area and each has one or two international standard restaurants plus evening entertainment programmes. There are also a number of locally owned restaurants and there is always the barbecue at the shack on the beach. For golfers there is a 9 hole golf course at the Leela Palace just 2 kilometres from Cavelossim.The course may be used by the hour at Rupees 450 or by purchasing a pass from 3-5 days ranging in price from Rupees 1400 - 4400 (all prices approximate plus 12% tax).
