About the neighbourhood
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...

Taxis are available at the gate of Luisa by the Sea to take you all over Goa.
