Cavelossim Beach, straddling
the coast road 11-km south of Colva, is the last major
settlement in southwest Salcete: its only claim to fame. A
short way beyond the village's picturesque church square, a
narrow lane veers left across an open expanse of paddy
fields to the Cavelossim-Assolna ferry crossing near the
mouth of the Sal River.
If one is heading south to Canacona, turn left off the ferry
and carry on as far as Assolna Bazaar, clustered around a
junction on the main road. A right turn at this crossroads
puts you on track for Canacona.
Carry straight on at the junction just past the square in
Cavelossim and one'll eventually arrive at Mobor, where
Colva beach fades into a rounded sandy spur at the mouth of
the Assolna River. This would be an exquisite spot if it
weren't the site of South Goa's largest, and most obtrusive,
package tourist enclave.
Crammed together on to a narrow spit of dunes between the
surf and estuary, the holiday inns and beach resorts combine
to create a holiday camp ambience that has as little to do
with Goa as their architecture.
Located just about 11 kms, South Of Colva, South Goa is this
Cavelossim Beach which is very charming & very near to Colva
Beach. The best time to visit Cavelossim Beach is from
November To March.
This is a small stretch of beach along the south of Colva
beach along the south Goa coastline. It was an isolated
beach but recently there is a growth of five star resorts in
