“Virgin Beach”
Review of Om Beach

Om Beach
Ranked #5 of 12 things to do in Gokarna

Attraction details
Reviewed July 29, 2011

Om Beach was spectacular in the sense that it provided a secluded haven from the maddening rush of today's materialistic world. One of the cleanest, virgin beaches on the Indian sub continent, totally in commune with Mother Nature, we extended our original schedule of stay by three more days. For a enthusiastic photographic connossieur like me, the servings at Om Beach was spectacular more so since we were there during the peak of monsoon. To sleep on the beach watching the stars at night with the roar of the waves in your ears was an experience of a lifetime. We will do it again on the beach next year too.

I had been to gokarna this feb as a part of a road trip from Bangalore , as usual no bookings . The approach road towards gokarna looked very very isolated , the road pointers are very few . There a nice view point very close to the beach it gives u an overall idea of the place . There are couple of beaches along the area . Om beach the most popular , mostly with western backpackers . Very close to om beach there's a Ayurvedic resort by the same name . The car can be parked near that , paid parking , and u have to go down the cliff along a path to the beach . The steps are in bad shape so elderly stay away : at the mouth of the beach there's a restaurant hotel , that s the only decent facility on the beach the remaining are all shacks with very basic facilities. The beach is very good , but it does have it s share of stray dogs and cows . I have hardly seen cows on any other beach . As mentioned before the only place I found to stay along the beach front was the first shack when one comes down the stairs . The room rates vary based on your requirement , and season . Some rooms are in bad shape , it does fit into a shoe string budget , the ac rooms where in better shape . None of the rooms have any beach view . All together the beach is great . Overall ok but definitely good to visit once .

We had a lovely time in India. Everything went very well - all the arrangements were great. We were very impressed by how Om Beach seemed so well organized, and things went so smoothly.

We would be happy to recommend Om Beach to other folks interested in traveling to India.
Thanks for all your help.
