Majorda Beach

South Goa

Approached through pleasant, leafy Majorda village, Majorda Beach is a smarter, more organised option than neighbouring Utorda, with half a dozen Russian-dominated beach shacks, all serving up the standard beach menu. To get here, take the left-hand curve of the beach approach; the right-hand curve takes you down to Majorda Beach Resort.
