If you want perfect silence responding to the humming of the sea, where you can sit engrossed in a book and look up to catch the picturesque scene of the sea dressed in golden orange frills sprayed by the rays of the setting sun before sinking into oblivion, then this beach is the place to be.
This beach is very famous for delicious breads. This place in Goa has a very interesting history behind it. Majorda is the village where the Jesuits, fond as they were of the good things of life, discovered the best Goan toddy (sap from the coconut palm), which they used to leaven the bread. Naturally, then, Majorda in Goa is the place where the Goans were first trained in the delicate art of baking European breads.
The Majordans are still Goa's best bakers. The delights of the beach, however, were discovered much earlier, in the mythic times when the gods above went through a lot of turmoil. There is a Goan version of Ramayana and therein Lord Rama was kidnapped as a child and brought up at Majorda. Later, in pursuit of Sita, he camped at Cabo de Rama-a headland further south-where the stretch of developed beaches ends.
Majorda beach is an uncrowded beach and a person not wanting to get disturbed by the hustle-bustle of the other beaches can very well find this as an escape option. You will simply be mesmerised in its beauty to try any other place.
Goa Majorda beach has a beach resort, Majorda Beach resort, to boast about. This resort ensures a very comfortable stay, but this resort may prove to be slightly expensive. For people who are looking out for cheaper accommodation, there are few guest houses to try out. Besides one can look out for private house owners who are ready to let out their houses to the tourists.
Martins Corner This famous family-run restaurant in the village of Betalbatim near Majorda grew out of a shack. With its cane lamps and cane bar, it still retains the shack feel. Its prices, however, are well above the average shack, and with good enough reason. Pleasant retro music and the aromas of Goan cooking fill the air at lunch and dinnertime. Try the amotik (shark in hot and sour curry), which bears the delightful description on the menu, like red chilly ground and local toddy vinegar.
Kenilworth Beach Resort This large resort has a marble lobby with lots of quiet corners where you can relax, and overall the place doesnt have the same frantic-to-please service typical of some other hotels in Goa. The staff here are experienced and relaxed. Rooms are serene, with cane furniture and pleasant green furnishings. Theres an expansive swimming pool with a swim-up bar, an open-air Jacuzzi, a waterslide, and a 3-meter-deep area for beginner scuba drivers. All rooms have private balconies.
Majorda Beach Resort An old favourite with tourists from Bombay and Gujarat, this resort has a friendly, airy lobby, an ayurvedic ashram, and large, well-furnished rooms. It also feels lively, given all the families that come to stay here. A 2-minute walk through the grounds brings you to a long, gorgeous stretch of beach.
