“Scenic”
Review of Om Beach

Om Beach

Reviewed January 11, 2013

The beach is 6 kms away from the town of Gokarna. It is a really scenic beach. However, it is tough to get accomodation here (especially if you are an Indian!) Also, most places to stay here are dingy and dirty.

Although there are 2 more beaches in Gokarna, this is the famous one. As it has the shape of "OHM", thus the name. there is only one restaurant available on Om beach and it is strictly average I must say.

Whatever you do, stay on Om Beach. Centrally located, you get access to boats, treks, water sports, crowd and serene sand all the time.

The approach roads are decent and could see many people trek all the way to Om Beach.One has to reach Om Beach from the parking area by climbing down steep steps and the view from above is breathtaking. Om beach is a rocky beach and easily one can kill time there. It also has the 'Namaste Cafe' and many people stay there overnight. Many foreigners are around which says how good the place is. A stroll on the beach is so relaxing and we missed the sunset view on this beach. Hope that would be amazing as well !

We can take board rides to the Half Moon and paradise beaches from Om Beach. One can see the shape of "om" while riding on the hillock on the way to Om Beach.
