Attention Beach-bums! If you’re looking for the beauty of Goa’s beaches minus the chaos, crowd and commercialization, look no further! The magic of Gokarna, Karnataka’s best kept secret, is just waiting to be discovered!

Gokarna beach: Named after the town itself, Gokarna beach is popular with the local pilgrims, with a couple of temples nearby. Trekking to Gokarna will reward you with a splendid hill-top view of the curved beach lined with coconut trees and colourful boats and the vast expanse of the sea! Descend by the steps onto the beach and feel the spiritual vibe envelope your entire being.

Paradise Beach: 150 metres of clean white sand interspersed with rocks and cut off from the rest of the world, this beach is a paradise indeed, true to its name. Also known as ‘Full-Moon beach’, this is a good spot for camping too, as it has a fresh water well nearby. Witness Nature’s own love story as the clear blue sky and the clean blue waters come together at the hazy horizon, and if you look closely you might even see shell-pairs that have just opened!

Half-Moon Beach: A beach in the shape of a half-moon on one-side, this one’s a tiny wonder just waiting to be discovered. Not easily accessible unless you trek or take a ferry to the place, it is so quiet and secluded that it almost feels like a private beach! Touch the crystal clear waters and little fish will swim past your fingers, gently teasing you and you might even see a starfish or two!

Om Beach: The distinct Om shape of the beach gives it the name. The tiny shacks and cafes lined up along the beachside offer quite a few options which ensure that all you water-babies won’t go hungry here! You can easily get yourself a Nariyal paani or some cool buttermilk to beat the heat and you’re all set to enjoy the beach!

Kudle Beach: Secluded and untouched, Kudle beach is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Lounge on the beachside as you witness the spectacle of the blue waters washing up the white sands, as the sunset turns everything a beautiful orange. Photographers can have a gala time clicking the picturesque sights at Kudle. Whether you are with your group of friends or your partner or solo, Kudle welcomes you with a big heart!

About Gokarna
