One of the most famous beaches in India, the Cavelossim beach of Goa will give you the experience of a lifetime when you come here for a vacation. The beach is located between the Arabian Sea and the Sal River. The paddy fields in the backdrop and the calm Sal River make the beach look beautiful and create a very soothing ambiance. The Cavelossim beach beach is the ideal beach to enjoy your vacation.

DOLPHIN AND SUNSET CRUISE: The Cavelossim is famous for its dolphin spotting tours and expeditions. One can also go on sunset cruises on the Sal River. Feel the magic take over as you feel completely at peace with yourself when you see the sun set at a distance and water gets painted golden orange. Dolphin cruises in the sea are fun and you can be sure to spot a dolphin or two cruising along your boat. If you are lucky enough, they can come real close and allow you to touch them.

There are some local shacks at the beach .The food is absolutely delicious and will leave you asking for more. So come to Cavelossim beach and enjoy life in its best form.

Goa exudes charm and warmth mainly because of the friendly and happy-go-lucky people who reside there. The people of Goa are extremely hospitable and make their guests feel at home.

A very important part of the life of an average Goan is a 'Siesta'. This is basically an afternoon break when Goans retire back to their houses, shut down shops and take a break

GOA SPICE PLANTATIONS: There is more to Goa than just beaches, A major attraction in the rural side is the spice plantation of Goa. Situated in the region called Ponda (central Goa), the spice plantations in Goa use organic methods of cultivation and farming. The spices that are produced are then cleaned and ground into powder.

The spice plantations of Goa are quite popular as a tourist attraction. On a typical excursion to the spice plantations, you shall begin your day by starting to explore the fields and the farms. It is very astonishing to see men climbing on very tall trees while maintaining a balance and at the same time plucking betel nut fruits from those swaying trees. The spice plantations are managed by people who have comprehensive knowledge and excel in technical know how of farming spices. Some major spices produced in these spice plantations are: * Black pepper * Cardamom * Nutmeg * Vanilla * Cinnamon * Cloves *Chillies * Betel nut * Coriander * Cashew

Superb Villa at a superb locations

  • Submitted: Mar 11, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
We stayed at Anna Bella for almost two weeks in February 2014. The villa is in a great location situated on the banks of the River Sal. It has three excellent sized bedrooms and ample living space downstairs including a large snooker table.

The kitchen is fully equipped if you choose to eat in the villa however there are plenty of restaurants near to Anna Bella.

The property is well maintained and is visited on six days out of seven by a maid who keeps the property very clean.

The beach is just a few minutes walk from the villa if you choose not to use the provided sunbeds in the garden. There are also two swimming pools available on site.

We were extremely pleased with our choice of Anna Bella for our stay in Goa and would certainly recommend the villa to anyone looking for a change from a hotel.

One final word must go to Jean-Pierre, the owner. From our initial enquiry to our return to the UK, we were able to contact all times with an immediate response being usual. We had one slight issue whilst in Goa that was resolved almost immediately and satisfactorily. Jean-Pierre ensured that our stay was comfortable and exceeded our expectations. Thank you.
Owner's Response: Dear guests

Fabulous stay - Great Villa - Great Location

We (5 of us ) stayed at the very spacious Annabella Villa and could not wish for a better place to say
the Villa is beautiful inside and out, and fitted to a high standard - fabulous views of the River Sal
Orlandi was the best housekeeper - shops all close by - food shopping , this can all be delivered straight to the villa
The villa is situated 5/10 minutes walking distance from the beach/shops/restaurants - you could choose a different Resturant each night if you wish so many to choose from
try Martin's Corner, River View right next door, Goan Village, Get Down to name but a few, The Beach for being lazy on the beach, plenty to eat and drink and be waited on try the Q Bar
And try the beach parties on a Wednesday a must
For all 5 of us the holiday was a great de- stresser and Annabella played a role in that
I would highly recommend this villa to anyone wishing to visit the South of Goa

We Will Be back !!!!!
Owner's Response: Dear All

Dear Jean Pierre,
Just a note to thank you for the use of your house in Goa, We have just returned after having a fantastic two weeks away in the sunshine. We all found it very relaxing and a perfect base for our holiday. The villa was everything that we could of hoped for and more. The location was perfect as I am a keen bird watcher and also enjoy fishing. I spent many hours just watching the many species of birds coming and going. I also managed to catch quite a few fish from the river. The villa is furnished in typical Goan style with many lovely pieces. After reading the visitors book we did not agree with some peoples comments especially having a television in all of the bedrooms. Just to sit outside and enjoy the view was the best part of the holiday.
Olinda and Jason were a great asset to the holiday as they were always there when we had any minor problems. Olinda kept the place lovely and clean and tidy. We did have a problem with the electrics one day when one of the MCB units burnt out in the fuse box. Jason managed to get an electrician to the house within an hour to sort it all out for us and we were very grateful for that. When we return to Goa in the future we would love to stay at your property again. Many thanks again for the use of your house. The various family photographs and momento's around the house helped to make it all feel very homely.

Your's Thankfully

Owner's Response: Dear Guest,

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you very much for taking the time to place your comments regarding your recent stay at our Villa " Anna Bella "
Due to the amount of repeat guests we have I can confidently say the majority of our guests feel the same way you do.
We do agree this is a non sense to put a TV. in each room and lots of Guests commented about that request.There is so many things to do while on holiday.
It gives me great pleasure to tell you that we can’t wait to have you back sometime in the near future.
Until then, kindly accept our warmest regards from Sunny Goa.

Total perfection

I recommended using this villa to my friends after having used " Dreams" on a previous stay, we all had a great holiday, including a 4 day trip to Hampi. My friends have come to Goa on 23 consecutive years and for them to rate this as the best yet says it all. The furnishings and lay out of the villa are perfect and should not be changed. We were picked up by our friend Ramakant, by boat right at the villa to go fishing, relaxing on the lawn was so peaceful, a nice walk into the village at night to eat was a ritual, Goan village and Jazz inn the best, Olinda did a great job cleaning and even doing our laundry. I have stayed at the Taj Exotica, Holiday inn and numerous other establishments but in all honesty villa Annabella tops them all, it was just perfect.
Owner's Response: Dear Sandra

Thank you very match for your fantastic feedback . Especially for people like you who are regular to Goa , and comparing us to some of the bet Hotels around.
We also highly appreciate your very praising comments about Olinda who try to do her best for people to feel at Home far away from Home.
Kindly accept our warmest regards from Sunny Goa

This stylish and comfortable villa enjoys a prime Water front position in the well established, popular private villa development - Luisa by the Sea. A few yards from the villa is a large swimming pool available for residents use only and at 10 minutes stroll to the idyllic Cavelossim beach .

In and around Cavelossim there is also a wide selection of restaurants offering plenty of choice for eating out. From locally run ones offering the freshest of today’s catch to some of the best hotels in Goa where you will find international standard restaurants and evening entertainment programmes. Don't forget there is always the barbecue at the shack on the beach too.

Goa, the former Portuguese colony for over 400 years is one of the most relaxed places in India. Variously known as 'Rome of the East', 'Tourist Paradise' and 'Pearl of the Orient'.


The Dudhsagar waterfalls are located in the Sanguem district of Goa near the Goa-Karnataka border. It is located at a distance of around 60 kilometers from Margao and can be reached easily by hiring a taxi .

Dudhsagar waterfalls of Goa have the distinction of being ranked as the fifth highest waterfall in India and they list in the Top 100 highest waterfalls in the world.

The Dudh Sagar waterfalls have a milky white appearance which is why it is named as Dudhsagar which literally

means 'Ocean of Milk'. The Dudhsagar waterfalls plunge down from a staggering height of 2000 feet. The waterfall is located amongst lush green surroundings of the forests of Western Ghats which is what makes it even more scenic and beautiful.

Many tourists who visit Dudh Sagar prefer swimming in the calm waters. It is quite safe to swim there provided one is careful enough.

The Dudhsagar waterfalls provide a breathtaking view from the top and they look scintillating during the crack of dawn. Those who love adventure and thrill can always try to climb to the head of the waterfalls though the rough path full of rocks, vegetation and water. It may take a couple of hours but it will definitely be worth it! So if you want to spend an entire day in serenity, go to Dudhsagar waterfalls of Goa.

Ski: Goa is famous for its temples that attract numerous devotees from all over the world. Many people tend to think of Goa as a Christian community and are not aware of the famous temples located here. During the Portuguese rule, many Hindu temples were destroyed in a zeal to spread Christianity. But as time passed, the Portuguese allowed the construction of Hindu temples and one of the earliest temples under the Portuguese was built around 1818. The style of construction of Goan temples is also different from other Hindu temples due to a different historical background.

Goa is literally synonymous with churches. They are living testimonies of the rich historical past of Goa. During the early days of the Portuguese rule in India, church building was the primary concern and occupation in Goa. This was because of their zeal to spread Christianity and convert as many people as they can. The Goan churches still have that old world charm and are very popular with the tourists who visit India
