This beach is reachable by cabs/autos and always has either of these transport options available. You can trek to it form Kudle Beach. The view in between is breathtaking. There are stairs taking you down to the om beach and the pic of the beach from the top is in the form of a W - Om in Hindi/Sanskrit.

Most popular among tourists, can be reached by auto.It is further along the coast from Kudle and named for its shape as it is split by a rocky island.The only clean beach and may be visited throughout the year.

Clear and calm sea to swim in, beach was clean and unspoit. Very nice to see not much development here. Mainly Indian visitors who all enjoyed the beach. A few nice cafes serving decent food and drinks

Has couple of restros along the beach. So basic food and stay is available. However, It is amazing to pitchin tent along the beach side. Avoid travelling during Summer as this place quite hot and humid.

Have you ever gone somewhere and have to force yourself to leave because if you don't, it will be 6 months later because you love it that much? That was Om Beach to me. I intended to spend 3 days there, I spent 10 and wished I could have stayed for 6 months. The water is warm, the sand is... More

OM beach was amazingly quiet beach with chilled atmosphere, with some locals also to make people realize we are in India...I felt Kuddle beach was too touristic and all the restaurants were side by side, OM beach is not that crowded and sunset points are amazing.

The view is Good. If you can take a boat and travel to Dolphins point then you can view Dolphins playing. But you have to be there before 8.30am. Because due to heat they wont come out.

This is one of the best beaches in India. It is very unique as the name suggests. The best thing to do here is to watch the beautiful view of the ocean with a bottle of beer. You can stay in the night as there are many cottages available along the stretch but you need to make your bookings in... More

Absolutely beautiful beach which deserves 5 stars. Unfortunately the experience was overshadowed by the fact the place was full of groups of local men staring and photographing women on the beach, such as myself. As a solo female traveller this was almost unbearably irritating, even intimidating. My advice would be to travel with a male friend, or just try your... More

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..
