Kudle Beach, Gokarna

4.3
#1 of 29 in Beaches in Karnataka
Beach Nature / Park
Nestled between two hills, Kudle Beach offers a wide expanse of sand with a family-friendly atmosphere. Take a short walk from the road to get to the gently sloping beach, where you can enjoy a nice swim in the water, or simply relax on the sand. At the back of the beach you can choose from several restaurants and small shacks offering food and drinks. Try to stay for the sunset, which offers a picturesque view from along the water. Unfortunately, the beach can get quite dirty at times.

  • This was a nice beach to take a walk and enjoy the waves. A pretty good cafe close by. I wouldn't recommend swimming there, but it was lovely to look at.....  more »
  • Many of the thatched-roof huts, pensions are closed during the monsoon season. The road is dangerously slippery and at high tide from one side, Kudle beach is hard to reach on foot.

  • The beach has a wonderful view although it was quite dirty! But overall nice place to hang out! Trekking to the beach was okay but the road was steep and closed!  more »

  • Pros: -- less crowded -- good eating options around compared to Om beach which had only 1 - 2 cafes operational - June month stats -- lifeguard around, but his uniform needs to be changed to actually help people who are in need! He was dressed like a police constable with the khakhis and boots 🤦‍♀️ Cons : -- not easily accessible, need to trek on rock from main land or other beaches -- rocky as well as sandy. Smaller Rocks are difficult to spot as waves hit over, so need to be careful to not go deep inside
  • One of the largest beach with most of the crowd and beach cafes in Gokarna. Has the largest foreigner crowd. In evening, it comes to life with lot of people enjoying the sunset, taking bath in the Arabian Sea and foreigners set up small market selling stones, neck pieces, etc on the beach.
  • Awesome Beach.Very Peaceful. Mostly Foreign tourists are there. Can enjoy very well in water. Restaurants are average. Need to Buy drinking water. Food little Costly in Restaurants
  • Clean and pristine... But there is almost no shade anywhere along the beach, except in the shack restaurants
  • Nice sunset view. Less crowd. Peace of mind for sure...!

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.
