Turn right at the main road and within 2 minutes you come to a parade of shops selling a range of wonderful clothes and artifacts you immediately want to take home!
There are so many restaurants within a 5 to 10 minute walking radius that you can easily try a different one every night of your holiday, with an excellent selection of vegetarian and non-vegetarian cuisine – Goan, North India, South Indian and Continental.

The Goa region
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.
With lovely sundrenched beaches and a multitude of food shacks, Goa is the ideal tourist paradise. It also offers a unique multicultural and multireligious experience, with friendly people, ancient temples and old churches next to each other, and a combination of Indian and Portuguese influences.
GOA SPICE PLANTATIONS: There is more to Goa than just beaches, A major attraction in the rural side are the spice plantations. Situated in the region called Ponda (in 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 knowhow of farming spices. Some major spices produced in these plantations are: * Black pepper * Cardamom * Nutmeg * Vanilla * Cinnamon * Cloves *Chillies * Betel nut * Coriander.
Siesta is located in a beautiful and green condominium of around 70 villas, called Luisa by the Sea, located in South Goa, on the banks of the River Sal. The Cavelossim beach is across the road from the condominium, and is only a 5 minute stroll away from the villa itself.
One of the more famous beaches in India, the Cavelossim beach of Goa will give you the experience of a lifetime when you come here for a vacation. Located between the Arabian Sea and the Sal River, with 25km of unbroken fine sand, the Cavelossim beach is the ideal place to enjoy your vacation.
BEACH ACTIVITIES: You and your children can enjoy cycling on the beach, swimming or splashing about in the warm waters, water sports like parasailing and jet skiing, or simply playing in the sand. There are boat tours that will take you out into the sea for a few hours to spot dolphins.
EATING OUT AND NIGHTLIFE: During the tourist season from November to April, there are several restaurants within a 5 to 10 minute walking radius, many beach shacks serving fresh and absolutely delicious food, and some highly recommended restaurants like Fisherman's Wharf within a 2 kilometer radius. They all provide an excellent selection of vegetarian and non-vegetarian cuisine – Goan, North India, South Indian and Continental.
The Radisson Hotel, with its famous nightclub Titos, is almost right outside the gates of Luisa by the Sea and the starred Hotels The Leela and the Holiday Inn are just 2 kilometres away.
DOLPHIN AND SUNSET CRUISES: 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 the 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.
SHOPPING: There are several shops and shacks for groceries, medicines, liquor, clothes, trinkets, souvenirs, and whatever else a person would normally need on a holiday, within a five minute stroll.
