Photographer's Note

Morjim beach is in north Goa, next to Ashvem beach and the Chapora river. Morjim is famous as the nesting ground of the endangered olive ridley turtle. There are many foreign tourists here. Most of them are from Russia, which is why, Morjim beach is often referred to as “little Russia”. This is a quieter beach than the others in Goa’s north. Morjim is named after goddess Morzai. According to a legend, the goddess arrived here riding on a peacock (mohor in local language, which eventually became Mhor-Jim, and then Morjim), but others believe the goddess was fished out from the sea by local fishermen. The beach is a part of a small but very cozy and beautiful Morjim village. There are many beautiful houses, villas and nice bungalows here. The landscape is a mix of palm tree grooves, paddy fields, ponds, forests, and cottages. The village and the beach is not “touristy”, and gives off an authentic Goan charm.
