Welcome to Cansaulim, Arossim & Velsao
Only about 3km north of Utorda, the coast road passes though the busy market village of Cansaulim, crossing the train line a couple of times. From here lanes lead down to the beaches of Arossim, Cansaulim and, at the northern end, Velsao. Despite the gloomy presence of the vast and looming Zuari Agro chemical plant to the north, this stretch of beach makes a quiet place to get away from it all, in the company of just a lifeguard, a few beach shacks and a flock or two of milling seabirds.
The coast road travels some way back from the beach, through thick coconut groves past dozens of old bungalows and paddy fields, while occasional laneways lead you down to the beach.
