Om Beach, Gokarna

4.0
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.

  • The place is very peaceful and relaxing. Good for weekend getaway. Not much crowded. Food is also good. Some water sports is there. Kayake is the best. Good for meditation.
  • One of the most beautiful beaches I have been to in India. It's family friendly and safe. There are cafe's all along the beach and you won't have trouble finding a great meal or a place to stay on the beach. Midnight bonfires are popular here. If you're lucky you'll be able to see bioluminescence at night as the waves crash on the shore.
  • A fantastic place to be... Clean beach and clean waters. Nice place to relax and unwind... Ideal for a weekend getaway. You have places to change, small cafes are strategically placed to eat around the beach.
  • I have been to on beach during our college tour. It is one of the beautiful beach i have been to, enjoyed walking on the beach side and seeing the sunset sitting on the rocks, playing football on the beach with friends. There are tattoo shops ,cafes and some shops nearby
