The distance between Gokarna and Bangalore, is around 500 km and it takes around 10 hours to reach Gokarna from Bangalore, by car. The route is as follows: Bangalore - (NH4) Tumkur - (NH 206) Gubbi - (NH 206) Tiptur - (NH 206) Arsikere - (NH 206) Kadur - (NH 206) Tarikere - (NH206) Bhadravati - (NH206) Shimoga - (NH206) Sagar - (NH206) Honavar - (NH17) Kumta - Gokarna. The road between Bhadravati and Shimoga, which is almost 30 km, is not that good. Try taking a break before Kadur, at a restaurant called Masala, for meals. The food served there, is hygienic and tasty.

Travelling from Bangalore. Take NH-4 till Haveri and take a left turn. Till Haveri road is awesome. Its 4 Lanes. After haveri around 20 Kms road is little bumpy. But GPS will surely help. Not sure which all places came in between. But journey was good. It took me around 7 hrs from Bangalore to reach Gokarna.

Roads are pretty good, avoid night drives. You may not get decent amenities on the way. We visited Gokarna, Kollur, Singur, Murdeshwar, Sringeri, Bale Honnur, Belur and Hassan. It was a wonderful trip which was unplanned and was a quite a good experience.

We five friends visited this property this July. The hotel appearance from outside is awesome. The property is bang on beach and worth spending time for drinks and dinner at the restaurant. Rooms are affordable but shabby, very basic and separate cottages. Overall when compared to other...more »

We were a family of 6 adults and 1 kid travelling from Bangalore to Gokarna. Since the distance was close to 500 km and there were not many places of interest on the way, we choose a night journey. We took the NH4 till Bankapur and took a deviation towards left near Bankapur. The road is very good till Bankapur but it is a single lane road from Bankapura.

We crossed Mundgod and reached Yellapura by around 5. 30 in the morning where the driver halted for 30 min to take a nap. Yellapur is surround by lush greenery and the ride from there was pleasant. The road joins the NH17 near Ankola and from there we took left towards Gokarna. The road passes parallel to the west coast with a beautiful view. At many places the road crosses small streams and river tributaries.

It takes about 7 ours to reach the NH 17 near Ankola. So, plan your journey accordingly to reach the NH 17 early in the morning for a wonderful journey along the cost.

Overall, experience travelling to Gokarna was okay, as it was not a tourism season. We went in monsoon. It was raining the whole night and beach was dirty. I'll suggest to go in spring or autumn. The bus was non-ac sleeper and it is 11 hours to travel, so it is bit difficult. You won't get A/c buses to Gokarna from Bangalore.

Most important point bus is punctual with timings which is very much important. Bus is driven carefully in hilly areas and where the road condition is not good.

On board entertainment is excellent, the staff behaviour was pleasing to visit the same next time. A/C option is too good when travelling in summer as the temperature overthere is hot.
