Gokarna Beach, Gokarna

3.0
#4 of 6 in Parks in Gokarna
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. Check out the nearby temple, which attracts many pilgrims, devotees, and families. You might have the chance to see an important Indian ritual in progress while you walk along the beach, as the beach serves as a cremation site.

  • Superb beach, with clear water, and less pollution beach. The water is so clear and even the place is maintained clean . We spent whole day in the water only. In some places crabs are there , so be ca...  more »
  • Like any Indian touristy beach - it is hugely crowded right at the entrance. To find solitude, walk away to either side.  more »
  • This beach we last seen only in Tunisia. Sand, a long entry, no life and jellyfish, the warm water, but it was the end of March-beginning of April, when in Gokarna is already the heat and not the season. Gokarna Beach (or Main) is the largest. Distorted (but again I write not about season). The most dirty place near the location of the fishermen and parking-come and fill the place of the pilgrims-Indians from Friday to Monday. Three day crowd, but only on a small area. The rest is empty, sometimes someone from the nearby Gest hauzes trash, which brings the sea or leave. Clean-carry into heaps closer to vegetation. Many dogs, each group protects its territory. Waves as saying local, almost always. You can browse and choose a restaurant to their liking. Highly recommend that Samudra Namaste Yoga House! Will be returning there permanently. Cows are held periodically. Sunset just towards the sea.

  • A good quite beach to visit. It has a series of good enough open restaurants along it. A relatively small part of the beach around the entrance stays crowded and has lifeguards. But moving away from it by around a 100 metres you get a tranquil sea shore. It is a very attractive situation in case you don't like crowds. It is also great for swimmers as you can swim far into the ocean without anyone making a fuss about it.... There is no water sports available there by the way. So don't get your hopes high on that. But Gokarna has other beaches with water sports. So don't get disappointed....
  • Gokarna Beach is very nearer to the main temple. Unlike other beaches this is easily accessible. Good for elders, families and kids. A clean, safe, pleasant and peaceful surroundings. This beach is less visited by foreign tourists and more by locals. One can have a good view of sun set. Adi Sankaracharya’s statue is located at parking place.
  • If you like silent beaches with less crowd, this is the right option. Sunsets are the most beautiful things to witness here. The water is also fresh. But choppy waves at times. You can also camp on the shore during nights.
  • Superb beach.. As usual sunset is great to see out here... Usual amenities and facilities can be expected... Can meet some nice people..
  • One of the many beaches in Gokarna. The tourism Dept could have maintained it in a much better way. The plus point is that, there is a proper parking lot just close by. Other than that, there is nothing much to talk about. This is just a stone's through away distance from the Temple. If my review is useful, click on "Like" below.
