Majorda beach is a small beach that stretches about 5 Kms north of Colva Beach along the coastline. There are many hotels over here.
Majorda is the village where the Jesuits who were fond of the good things of life, discovered the best Goan toddy, which they used to leaven the bread. Then, this is the place where the Goans were first trained in the art of baking bread. Majordans are still Goa's best bakers. The delights of the beach, however, were discovered earlier, in the mythological times when the Gods 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 search of Sita, he stayed at Cabo de Rama-a headland further south-where the stretch of developed beaches ends
