Morjim Beach ,Goa

Morjim Beach

Morjim beach is an isolated beach situated on the North Goa in the Pernem taluka of the mouth of Chapora river estuary. It can be viewed from the Chapora fort as a beach that has stretches of empty sand with a lot of palms and casuarinas trees in the background. The beach is also recommended for viewing sea birds.

The Goa Morjim beach however is most famous for the famous Olive Ridley turtles that are found here. Even the strong breeze blown here is known as the turtle wind amongst locals as it attracts these beautiful sea reptiles. The southern end that has soft white sands of the beach known as Temb acts as a nesting ground for the Olive Ridley turtles that come here to lay their eggs. The Morjim beach is also the spot in Goa where one can see a lot of net pullers who make their living from the fish they catch after they dry it and sell it as palm tree fertilizers.

Seeing the Olive Ridley turtles and their hatchlings is an unforgettable experience. This happens only occasionally. However, touching the eggs or hatchlings is a punishable offense. A signboard in this regard has been put up on the beach

There are few beach shacks and restaurants found at the Morjim beach in Goa that serve delicious meals and fresh fruit juices. Also for accommodation there are some private houses and small guest houses. There are a lot of buses that connect Morjim with Panjim and Mapusa.

Panaji is 30km away, The Pernem Railway Station is 20km away, and Dabolim is at a distance of 55km. Prepaid taxis can be taken from the airport and the station. Buses are few, and one needs to catch them based on their timings.
