Tourist reviews and a video review of Kavelossim beach
Compared to the nearby Kolpa, there are far fewer shakes on Kavelossim. But on the Kolpa for the weekend comes too many locals, so it can be noisy. Kavelossim is designed for quiet couples with children and for retirees.
A similar family beach is Benalium, but few Russians vacation here. And located near Kavelossim Palolem is designed exclusively for the amusement of young people, an adult can not stay on Palolem more than a couple of hours.
