Village Vistas of Cavelossim - South Goa

Overview

A leisurely meander through the picturesque environs of Cavelossim promises to be a real treat. A bit of history, a bit of heritage, a bit of natural beauty and a bit of atmospheric village life…throw it all together and you have all the ingredients for an alluring slow-paced cycling tour for lots of abiding memories. This offbeat beach destination in South Goa close to the mouth of the River Sal is one of the best places for savouring those iconic Goan staples – the Impressionistic seascapes, the flaming sunsets, lavish paddy fields and coconut plantations. Then, of course, that classic Portuguese architecture and delicious seafood and drinks enjoyed best in beach shacks and low slung cafes.

Why you will love it

  • Visiting oyster-shell houses, still standing
  • as a historical example of graceful architecture.
  • Cycling along with the paddy fields of Dhiro.
  • Learning to shuck oysters.
  • Riding through the quiet roads to explore the beautiful village and enjoy the beauty of the serene backwaters.

What you will experience

Arriving at Cavelossim you’ll be spoilt for choice for exploring its lovely vistas. What makes it even more pleasant is the warm hospitality of the friendly village folk. Heading past the sand dunes you will come upon the charming Cavelossim Church. Our next stop is the village Oyster Shell House where you can enjoy pleasant moments ruminating over an old seaside tradition. Not long after you will be lured by the emerald paddy fields of Dhiro which you will explore by bike as you head out towards the Asslona Bridge.  Enjoy selfie moments and photops of the locals working the field. 

Our ride now takes us to the Menezes House and then Lohia Square.   There’s no way you would want to miss the lovely Asslona Church before piling back on the bikes to enjoy some delicious seafood at the restaurant where you can also learn how to shuck oysters the way the locals do. That’s not the end …you still have another nice ride past the serene backwaters and the fishing jetty in this charming pastoral place.
