Majorda Beach Goa India

Situated in the south of Goa, Majorda beach is one that will sweep you off your feet with its canopy of palm trees, soft white-sands, clear waters & mere bliss. I’ve been living here since a kid and trust me I love this place for its serenity and peaceful atmosphere. It is one of the most marvelous beaches in Goa that I know of & is located about of 8 kms from Margao, 5 kms from the ColvaBeach and 18 kms from Dabolim Airport

Majorda Beach is connected to Margao with an excellent network of roadways and it is not much of a task to find your way. It has been one of the most popular beaches of Goa, and its popularity lies in its serenity.majorda beach walk

Majorda Beach has a strong bearing upon the Indian mythology. It is believed as per the Ramayana that when Lord Rama was a child he was kidnapped and brought to Majorda. Then while in quest of his consort Sita, he came to the Cabo-de-Rama, which lies further down south.

The history of Majorda is noteworthy for its breads & bakes and also toddy. Here Jesuits discovered the best toddy of Goa who used it to leaven the bread. Even today the people of Majorda are known to be the best bakers of Goa; this was the place where the tradition of baking European style breads was started. Besides, the tourists can enjoy a wide variety of mouth-watering sea-food and Goan cuisine at the beach. Fisherman watching the tide by the seashore at Majorda Beach

Another popular attraction in Majorda is the Mae De Deus Church. The Church was found in 1588 A.D. After being destroyed in 1738, it was rebuilt in 1739. There are also many chapels and crosses almost in every section of the village.
