Morjim Beach


Morjim Beach

Morjim is a picturesque portion of Goa’s 103-square metre long shoreline in the North. The swish and rustle of the waters of the Arabian sea and the Chapora river bestow on it a bountiful catch of choice fish and coconuts as well as beautiful vistas. Hedged by hillocks, which chase the habitated plains and gently dissolve on the pristine beach, Morjim offers gorgeous viewpoints from sea-level upwards Morjim interests different people for different reasons. For sure, it’s a rural place shrouded in quaint customs and traditions like most Goan villages. It boasts about one of the loveliest beaches. Moreover, it’s the home of Goa’s traditional folk-dance ghoddemodni and maddachem godd (coconut jaggery).
Morjim, located in Pernem, is the southernmost beach of the taluka. Interestingly, the beach is a natural choice for Olive Ridley turtles for breeding. The hatchlings can be spotted easily during the nesting season, which lasts from November to March. It is an unusual sight to see the tiny hatchlings make their way from their nests to the sea. Local authorities, however, want to avoid a stampede of tourists and visitors which could affect the turtles’ breeding.
