A relatively small beach, Majorda’s beauty actually lies in its quaintness and warmth. Despite its size, it is actually a pretty popular beach in Goa, well-liked by Indians and foreigners alike. It lies around 5 km north from the famous Colva beach in South Goa, with picturesque views and surrounded by several hotels, particularly the Majorda Beach Resort that lies along a beautiful sandy strip between Utorda and Betalbatim beaches. This is not the first time that Majorda beach has been popular though. According to the Goan story of the Ramayana, the Hindu king Ram was kidnapped when he was a child and raised in Majorda. He is said to have camped in the area south of Majorda that is now called Cabo de Rama, where the stretch of beaches ends, in the pursuit of his wife, Sita. ALSO READ: 12 top secret beaches of Goa!

Majorda is famous for more than just mythology and food; it is also said to be the village where Jesuits discovered Goan toddy. The toddy was used to leaven bread, and so it is that Goans were introduced to the art of European bread-making in Majorda village. Even today, people consider Majorda residents to be the best bakers in Goa. The beach, meanwhile, is warm and welcoming. You will find shack and local restaurant owners beckoning you to taste their incredible food, along with some nice souvenir shops. The south-facing beach also offers great views of the sunrise and sunset. Beach games and water sports are available to some extent here, but Majorda is best experienced in an easy pace.
