Om Beach, Gokarna

3.5
Om Beach offers scenic views and a relaxing atmosphere. Accessible only by boat or on foot, the beach is mostly frequented by locals and is rarely crowded, which means that on most days you can have the long stretch of soft sand all to yourself. Although most residents know it for its unusual shape--said to resemble the Om symbol--foreign visitors favor the beach for its water sports options, which include surfing and parasailing. Using our custom trip planner, Gokarna attractions like Om Beach can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

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.
