Although not the city beach of gokarna, this is more crowded compared to others like Kudle, while adventure seekers head off to paradise, The beach's easy accessibility by derivable road makes it crowded.. Given that, it is still beautiful and laid back in comparison to infested beaches of goa..

This beach was not crowded when we visited. You can do boating but no other water activities were on offer. The water was full of filth and dirty. The beach is shallow and there were warning boards about not entering into the water due to whirlpools.

I visited OM Beach in 2009 and after that in 2015 so in 6yrs this place was the best example of how a beach lost it's charm! So I didn't stay or do anything at OM beach, I trekked from half-moon where I stayed overnight, the trek is a worthwhile experience taking you densely inside the forest and arriving at... More

What Gokarna stands for, this place kind of steers it away from that. This beach is ideal for families and water sports. Namaste cafe nearby makes for a good setting to enjoy a drink and eat good food. (TIP: the owners get to "nervous" if you enter the cafe if you're drenched) So make sure not to do that to... More

Om beach is a wonderful Beach and the property SwaSwara was something really special suitable for those wanting to experience peach and tranquility. I would highly recommend it as all aspects of it were amazing.

It was on the last day with almost the petrol meter going past the empty mark.... More

Om beach is few km away from Kudle beach. Either you can reach there road or by having small 20-30 min trek. We went by our vehicle. Om beach names because of its shaped look like character Om (in Devnagari Language). Rocky patch in the center of beach leading in sea makes the Om shape. Beach is very small but... More

The beach is lovely and clean, the sea is calm and the people are very friendly. Take a hammock & spend some lazy days here.

I have visited beaches as a child, but Gokarna happened to be my first beach since the time I have grown up. Gorgeous and free, this beach side is calm and populated with the right kind of people. The side shacks offer you the most exquisite drinks and food. During peak seasons the beach can get a lot crowded, but... More
