"Good place for relaxing"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Majorda beach in south Goa, quite far from airport. Beautiful and peaceful place. Not many restaurants and bike rent shops as like in North Goa. So higher price than North Goa. Beach is clear and good for swimming. Must stay and relax for some days there.

"Nice beach to chill in silence!"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Mar 20, 2017
Visited this place in December, 2016. It was my first trip to Goa and I was very excited. Have been to most of the Beaches in Goa in my 4 days trip but found this one very interesting.
Fortunately, this was the first beach I visited following the rest but loved this one the most. Very silent, less crowded and good food with very mild music.
If you are looking for a beach not full of humans, this one is recommend.

"Pleasant Experience"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Nov 10, 2014
It's a very clean and quiet beach. Lots of activities for kids and families alike are there. Many restaurants along the way to get a taste of Goa. It's in the southern part of Goa and can be less populated than the northern part, where tourists usually flock - so if you like a quiet spot, choose the southern part of Goa, and you will not be disappointed.

"Excellent beach and fun with family"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Sep 20, 2013
It was a calm beach. Life guards present for any emergencies. And the best part was the overall beauty of the beach. With backwater (rain water) flowing in the beach and plenty of space there is a lot we could do with the family. We were here early in the morning and had an excellent time at the beach with the family.

"Super Refreshing Beach Holiday"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Sep 19, 2013
I am a regular traveller to Goa. It is one of my ever favourite destinations in India. I love the quiet and calm beaches, hence Majorda is my favorite. If I feel the need of noise and crowds then I just go towards Colva the Commercial beach of South Goa. My Stay at Johns Highland Comfort Guest House was restful and relaxing with all modern amenities like WI FI Internet, Refrigerator, AC, Modern and Clean and Spacious Bathroom and Toilets. Lived in a Goan Village of Majorda with Goan houses surrounded all around the Guest House of Judy's. It was one superb relaxing holiday at Majorda beach.

"Majorda Beach"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted May 23, 2013
It was a nice peaceful beach with loads of greenery around. Way to the Majorda beach is worth a mention . You have to travel via road through lush green paddy fields. Green waves of the fields looming in winds seems to welcome you to their blue counterparts of the arabian sea. If you looking for a peaceful place away from hustle and bustle of city, to cherish beautiful moments with your partner the Majorda beach can be a place to be.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: The beach is a calm rather a secluded one. with no place for shopping or eating or even people to bother you. it'll be the just 'the lord of ocean' and you.

Activities & things to do: Just sing 'OHHHH LOOOORD OF OCEAN, MAKE A HIGHHHH TIDE RISE'; unleash 'the little you' and explore the other side of GOA. :-)

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: It is advisable to hire a self driven vehicle from north goa to explore this region as its difficult to procure the same in south goa.
