One of the best in Gokarna (overcrowded though)

Given that this is the primary attraction in Gokarna, it is crowded and seldom often space to relax alone. People playing cricket and volleyball are a common sight. If you... read more

Stayed at the OM Beach resort which is right by the beach. An amazingly clean, empty and quite safe beach. Water's quite clean. A good beach!

Given that this is the primary attraction in Gokarna, it is crowded and seldom often space to relax alone. People playing cricket and volleyball are a common sight. If you wish to enjoy this beach without the crowd, early morning and late evening are advisable. This beach gets its name from the fact that an aerial view of the beach... More

Om beach is one of the most popular beaches in Gokarna. It is in the shape of Om. I visited this beach during the monsoon, so the water was brown in colour and the waves were very strong. All water activities are closed during rainy season. There are few rocks here and there where we can sit on and the... More

Om Beach was not my favourite of the trip. I preferred Kudle for its isolation, and lack of crowds. However, good food is available at Om Beach (Hello, Namaste Cafe!), and it's probably why I will rate this higher than Kudle. It was really crowded on a Sunday in July. So I'm guessing during December - February, it will be... More

There is nothing special about this place if you go with intention of visiting a "beach" as one would when he/she goes to Goa or other coastal beaches. The shore is not much clean and looks deserted. On would have expected clean, pristine beach considering not many visitors here compared to Goa, but that is not the case. The positive... More

A beautiful each but clearly not maintained very well. Lack of attention by the local admin authorities to clean the beach and bring it ack to what it was 10 years ago. That said, still very beautiful and kinda virgin. Not too many tourists...YET!

Great beach to unwind and relax. One of the more popular beaches. The beach is well maintained and there are commercial establishments like restaurants and resorts in close vicinity. This beach currently does not have beach rules and is open to camping and bonfires on the beach. Great location for a weekend getaway!

The walk from Kudle Beach to Om Beach is simple awesome. You can start seeing the beach when you reach the top of the hill. Really calm and scenic beach with good hotels and cheap stay. Go sit on the rocks in the evening and enjoy the sunset.

Scenic beach to spend time with friends and families , very quiet and serene , But carry water bottles and snacks when you goto beach , It is very costly in the beach (1 omlete - 80rs )... Try walking to Half moon beach from Ohm beach.. It will be like trekking and also a good experience..
