Bogmalo and Majorda are broad, flat and open beaches that lie close to the port city of Vasco and are ideal for picnickers. Though popular, they are less heavily frequented among the prominent beaches of Goa.
There are small clusters of beach shack restaurants and a few fishing villages scattered under the coconut palms here. The Bogmalo beach though has the Bogmalo Oberoi hotel located on it and caters to the leisurely needs of its visitors. Shipwrecks stuck in the silt can be seen from here.
The Majorda beach and the Majorda Beach Resort lie to the south of Bogmalo. The best Goan toddy can be found here, as well as the best European breads. According to the Goan version of Ramayana, Lord Rama was kidnapped as a child and brought up at Majorda. Later, in pursuit of Sita, he camped at Cabo de Rama, a headland that lies further south and where there is now a fort.
