Morjim Beach
 

Back

Morjim Beach is one of the outstanding beaches of North Goa. A few years earlier this beach was reachable only by the romantic ferry over the Goan Chapora River, but with the Siolim Bridge thrown open since the year 2002; this delightful beach is now easy to get to by bike, taxi or any private vehicle.

Morjim beach lies just north of the Chapora River and can be approached by taking a short diversion off the coastal road from Chapora.  Morjim beach is peaceful and private.  Peace and tranquillity rules here, which makes it an ideal beach destination.  Morjim beach is around 3 kms in length. Just walk a couple of kilometres in either direction along the Morjim beach and you will be in the lap of Mother Nature, where sea, sand and sky blend in a charming natural harmony. The crystal clear water of Morjim beach is a swimmer's delight.

Morjim Beach also known as Turtle Beach because the Olive Ridley turtles come here every October to hatch eggs. Morjim is poles apart from the crowded beaches of Goa. Morjim village and beach is a place to unwind and to relax body, heart and mind.

Nature lovers will be delighted to spot a assortment of birds here like the Sand Plover, Bay-backed Shrike, Quill, Turnstones, Cuckoo, Kingfisher, Sandpipers, Gulls, Brown-headed, Black-headed and Slender-billed Gulls along with Crested Terns, Sea Eagle, Osprey and many more.

One can also go for Dolphin sighting with local fishermen of Morjim fishing village. Morjim beach can be viewed from the Chapora fort as a beach that has expanses of empty sand with a lot of palms and casuarinas trees in the background.
