Gokarna Beach, Gokarna

(1.6/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
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.
