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
