Gokarna Beach spreads for several kilometers, making it an ideal spot for long romantic walks on fine white sand. Look out towards the water and see the horizon spread to infinity, while the colors of the setting sun add a touch of magic to the air.

Where to stay in Gokarna

Close to the temples of Gokarna lie a number of guesthouses and simple hotels, most dating back to when the town was solely a place of pilgrimage. Look to the coast for the accommodations more popular with international visitors. By the main beaches, choose from speciality boutique lodgings offering yoga and meditation facilities, a selection of rustic eco-lodges, and some larger resorts with pools. A couple of campgrounds provide a memorable experience for outdoor adventurers.
