Don’t expect a lot of activity here; Majorda is just about you, sun and sand, nature and relaxing. It is perfect for those who want to get away from the stress of life as the atmosphere here is exceptionally calming. Apart from the tranquility, you will get the best cakes of Goa at Majorda with the people having gained a reputation for being the best bakers in town. Interestingly, the people of Majorda were the first to practice the art of baking European bread using the sap of a coconut palm (toddy) for leavening.
Majorda also has a mystical aura to it. Legend says that Lord Rama was brought to Majorda by his kidnappers when he was a child and later, while searching for his wife Sita who was kidnapped by the evil Ravana, he came to Cabo-de-Rama, a headland further south where the stretch of beach culminates.
The beach is located a few kilometers away from Margao, and just 5 kms away from Colva Beach. The lapping of the waters close to the soft white sands with the tall swaying palms at the backdrop will not fail to impress you.
How To Get There: Getting to Majorda should not be a problem. It is situated in the vicinity of Dabolim Airport from where you can find motorcycle taxis and the regular taxis. If you are coming from Margao Railway Station, bus services, motorcycles and taxis are available to take you to the beach. But the most convenient means of transport is the bike which can be hired for a day or as long as you want.
Accommodation: You will find plenty of accommodation here so pick one that suits your pocket. The luxury hotels and budget shelters are said to be quite comfortable offering a number of facilities but the most renowned is the Majorda Beach Resort.
Attractions: Being relatively less crowded make the most of it by spending a lazy day doing nothing but sleep and sleep or getting a tan. Rise early in the morning just to catch the stunning view of the sunrise from the beach. And spend the day wading or swimming in the water (but do check with the lifeguards before that), collecting shells and making sand castles.
Gorge down a sumptuous meal of jumbo prawns and local feni at the beach shacks and head to the village to sample their sweet yummy pastries for your desert. While there, also study their rich culture and their fascinating simple lifestyle.
