Gokarna – The Perfect Holiday

Gokarna is a quiet, laid-back seaside town on the Western Coast of India that has seen many changes over the years. It was mainly known as a temple town and most of the visitors came there for pilgrimage at the famous temple of Lord Shiva and the Mahaganapati Temple.

Things to Do

Sightseeing in Gokarna largely involves the beaches. There are four beaches in Gokarna, Kudle, Paradise, Half Moon and Om beach, which is the favourite of most travellers. The view of this beach from the top of the hill is breath taking.

There are many options for boat rides to different beaches, treks and water activities here. One can visit the temples or simply ride around and take in the sights and lives of the people there.

 Accommodation

 Hotels in Gokarna range from very cheap huts for backpackers on a budget, to comfortable and luxurious rooms in resorts. It’s easy to get accommodation near the beach but booking in advance in the peak seasons makes more sense.

We had booked out tickets on paytm for a friday night boarding to Gokarna. The bus picked us up from our pickup point and then we boarded the bus for the journey at Majestic.

The condition of the bus was good. The way to Gokarna is through a lot of hills and valleys, making it an enjoyable one. However, you don't get to see too many thing as it's a night journey. The roads felt good, except for the fact that it's all twisty and curvy.

The buses stop twice on the way, so options for dinner is always ON. The journey is approx 9 hrs, excluding the time taken by the pickup van. The arrival to the destination was on time.

I would advise to book your resort in advance - the best of the options are on the Kudle beach. Take an auto from the bus stand to Kudle beach (150 Rs).

Located on the Kudle beach in Gokarna, this is a cottage that has nothing much to offer but is an excellent choice if you don't want to spend a hefty amount on holiday hotels. The cottages are well- maintained with Western style toilets. Charges are around 600/ 24 hrs. It very peaceful and you...more »

The roads are nice all the way. Very few bad patches. Ample amount of petrol pumps until ranebennur, after that they are slightly scarce. The road between ranebennur and haveri does not have washroom amenities. We did not visit any place as such on the way but you can visit jog falls.

Drive was very pleasant. Every driver would love to drive by such clean and comfy highways. We were much impressed with the way the roads are maintained and laid for a long n comfy rides. 90% we travelled on highways to Gokarna. We went on by forest rout too for adding more adventurous moments to our travel. Though it rained heavily while returning back. It was a comfy ride too. Apart from few bumps. It a pretty decent highways.

The journey to Gokarna was awesome, especially while coming back. If you can stay awake can see the coastal journey between valleys. It's beautiful - the entire coastal region, "the western ghats". If you want to jog, its the best. It has a parking facility on beach side. You can take your bus also to the beach.

We booked SRS Travels through Redbus and have had a good experience with them so far. This time however, the ride to Gokarna and the one back was a terrifying experience! Both the times I could not sleep as he was going so fast, and so rashly that I sat up in my seat hoping I don't throw up. To top it, ironic as it may seem, we reached Gokarna much later than the estimated time! The berths were not too comfortable either - two of us in a double berth were desperately jostling for space.

The best part of this homestay was Jaya ma'am's cooking. Everything she prepared was delicious. The host, Rajeev, was really helpful and friendly. He picked us up and drove us to his house and also arranged cabs for us to go sightseeing.

There are two rooms in the house. The three of...more »
