There is nothing on this beach. Its only beach because of the Om. If you aren't happy with the judgmental neighbors you have back home, you can go here. No proper place to change. Also there are people lying on the beach almost like water mammals(not offending anyone by looks or any sort of racism) like they are beach models... More

Nice, clean rocky beach. There are sign boards put everywhere about currents. There are places where board isn't put. Playing closer to beach is safe. Great food options and neat beach! Boat rides available to reach Half moon, paradise and kudle...

A day before we had been to kudle beach and difference was evident. Personally I didn't like OM beach. 1 crowded 2 the water was black may be due to black rocks.

Well this is more of a foreigners beach. There are many naive foreigners who come here and touts who try to make a big buck off them. However its not to an extant that its a menace. Its few and far between. PLEASE BE WARNED NOT TO GO INTO THE WATERS HERE. There have been many deaths that have happened... More

Had visited this beach last year in December and was surprised to see its condition given the reviews that I had hear d and read about this place. The beach was stinking and was overcrowded. Couldn’t stand the stink for long and left the place in few minutes. Best avoided during vacation time.

Beautiful beach, nice trees, rocks, friendly dogs, sea eagles and brahminy kites! Easily reached by taking the road that goes straight opposite the parking area in Kudle.There seems to be lesser options for staying and eating than Kudle though. The beach is great for a swim, though there are a lot of signboards telling it maybe dangerous! Great place to... More

Loved the beach, sea, the cows roaming around on the rocks but sadly the instant you step foot on the beach it becomes a battle of wits with the beach sellers

travelled with 2 children: 1 year old and 7 years old. This is a beautiful place! Hard to find but well worth it. This place is not accessible to vehicles. The vehicles park at the top hill and you find a staircase that leads down to the beach a few hundred metres walk you will find a lot of resort... More

Beach has a splendid view. One can swim and spend a time in this beach. Beach is crowded during peak season. Food facility is available here. One can go for boat riding inside into the sea.
