The nearest airport is Dabolim, in Goa. From there it's a four hour drive to Gorkana. Alternatively, trains on the Konkan railway stop at Gokarna Road station.

The best time to visit Gokarna is from October until March, when the weather is warm and pleasant with temperatures averaging 32 degrees. April and May are hot summer months, and the temperature easily reaches 38 degrees.

Gokarna would be hot during this time .

Nearest airport as informed would be Dabolim in Goa. Other option is Mangalore Airport .

you can do a 100% train journey via Madgao from Nizamuddin in Rajdhani . Madgao is 1.5 hrs from Gokarna Rd .

Pl avoid Gokarna during summers since summers are really hot and unbearable like in any other coastal belt.

Dabolim airport, Goa is the nearest.Mangalore is the other optional airport.
