Morjim - Home Of Goan Folk Dance


The Arabian Sea arguably looks the best at Morjim, a beautiful stretch of the Goan coastline in the north. A plentiful catch of seafood and coconuts are a key offering of this beach more so because of its proximity to Charpora river.

Morjim Beach boasts of some amazing views and is a loner's paradise offering a calm afternoon or evening experience. So whether it’s to read, ponder or surf the Internet out in the open, Morjim is the place to be.

Morjim is interestingly the home of the popular Goan folk dance Ghoddemondi and coconut jaggery. Apart from these it is also home to an array of Goan customs and traditions which will definitely be of interest to the curious traveller. Morjim is best accessed with a hired bike. Cabs may refuse a fare to Morjim and if you’re lucky enough to convince a cabbie to go, you might just get overcharged.

How to Reach Morjim

  • By Road
    Goa can be accessed from Mumbai via the famous Mumbai � Goa highway or National Highway 17 which links Mumbai straight to Goa. Off late though, this route has fallen into disrepute on accord of there just being 2 lanes all along, one up and one down which not only is a little dangerous but also makes for a longer journey. The more convenient route is to head to Pune from Mumbai via the 8 lane expressway and then connect up to the Satara highway right till one gets to Sawantwadi on the far end of Maharashtra. Goa is just another few minutes from there. From Mumbai, Pune and other cities in Maharashtra, numerous bus services are available to Goa and very comfortable ones at that. The recommended kind to take is any service operating a low floor Volvo semi sleeper.
