Om Beach, Gokarna

(3.5/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
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. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Om Beach by using our Gokarna travel itinerary planner.
