Morjim Beach

Morjim Beach is one of the most Northern beaches in Goa. With its beautiful pristine sands and backdrop of palms it makes the perfect nesting and hatching site for the Olive ridley sea turtles. These creatures are an endangered species in India (though not globally) and are protected by law. This has done much to prevent development on the beach and it remains much as Goas brasher beaches to the south were 20 years ago.

This beach is one of the most peaceful and laid back in Goa, and is ideal for relaxing and taking in the beautiful surroundings.

In addition to the Goan food, you can find Russian dishes at Morjim because this is a popular spot for the Russian travelers. In fact some have dubbed the village “Little Russia” on account of the number of Russian expats who own property here now.

You won’t find a lot of shopping, but there are some small stands where you can buy knick knacks and other items.

If you want to do something away from the beach, you can take a river cruise on the Chopdem River at the southern end of the beach or visit Chapora Fort and Vagator Beach just across the water.
