In this blog I will talk everything about beaches you will want to know. 

So here is my first blog about the place I love the most. Let’s get started,

Here are the list of 5 Gokarna beaches that you can drop by!

Gokarna Beach

The beach is an overly crowded place in Gokarna because it’s close to Mahabaleshwar Temple. 

It has an ample number of shops and you can find localities. If you are looking for a fake deadlock to your hair there are so many shops near the main beach where you can get it done. 

It is a brilliant spot to watch the sunset and to take a holy dip in the beach. 

Om beach – Gokarna

Om beach

What comes to your mind when you hear om beach? Well probably there might be a temple so it’s called om beach right? But no that is not it. 

Om beach got its name because it’s in the shape of om sign. It is one of the famous beaches in gokarna and a great tourist spot. 

How would you feel if you get a cup of coffee with a stunning beach view? Awesome right !

Yes, you are welcomed with 2 famous food joints, 1. Dolphin cafe and  2. Namaste cafe, Gokarna. If you are looking for a place to chill with your friends with an ocean view this is the place I would suggest. And it’s a safe place for a great swim. 

Kudle beach – Gokarna

Kudle Beach

Kudle beach is one of the happening and famous beaches in Gokarna. 

It’s about 7km from the main town of Gokarna. It has so many food shacks and great accommodation in it. 

Two of my favorite food shacks in kudle beach are, 1. Bhagwan cafe and 2. Mantra cafe,Gokarna. 

If you are looking for accommodation then  Zostel is the best option.. The beauty that zostel carries with an ocean view tells what gokarna exactly has to show you.Trust me you will fall in love with that place. 

If you are looking for a quiet place to chill, I would suggest bhagwan cafe it’s about 20 mins walk from mantra cafe.  

Paradise beach – Gokarna
