Kudle Beach, Gokarna

4.3
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. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Gokarna holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Kudle Beach and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

    For us this is the best beach in Gokarna. Long and wide shores. Pleasant sand with no rocky elements. Lots of food joints and shacks along the beach. Beware of dog poos and cow dungs.  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.

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.
