Goa never fails for me

sunny 31 °C

Destination : Cavelossim,Goa
Journey : Bangalore to Goa
Journey Duration : 12 Hours
Transport : Sleeper Bus
Booking Agent : [[www.redbus.in...] Red Bus]
Place of Stay : Luisa by the Sea

Cavelossim/Mobor is neither here not there. This is why i like it. Its not as famous and crowded like Calunghute - North Goa
or lost its exclusivity like Palolem - South Goa. Geographically too it lies in between.

I went there with my friends not even a month back. Its off season during this period.So rates are low.

Highlights of the trip :

1. Dinner at Fisherman's Wharf -> http://timescity.com/goa/cavelossim/european_restaurant_the_fishermans_wharf/52645
2. Fishing at the place where the river sal meets the arabian sea at Mobor beach
3. Drinking cheap port wine
4. Riding Activa on Goa roads - rent Rs 250 per head per day

Here are a few pics from the trip
