Varca & Cavelossim are a 10 km strip of pristine beach south of Benaulim, with a number of hotels of varying degrees of luxury. This stretch has been patronized by the affluent tourists and can almost be called Goa's up market resort beach. These beaches are much cleaner and quieter than most of the famous beaches of Goa. They have a number of beach shacks offering a variety of Goan dishes and seafood at reasonable prices. Several food joints around Dona Sylvia offer entire packages of good food, drink, and a pleasant service at rather reasonable rates. There are also facilities for Dolphin watching at Betty's Place as well as boat trips for Dolphin watching up the River Sal.
