After finishing journey of Dwaraka, we drove to Somnath by road. While on way we stayed at Harsiddh Temple, Harsidhh and took lunch at Porbandar. Then reached Somnath at night. The road wad worst for last 50 km. An average journey. The road is parallel to sea for some km which is nice looking. We stayed for some time and enjoyed and did some photography. However it is not safe to go in to sea at this beach.
It is good to travel by car during November/December period as most of migratory birds are in that part of India. You get to watch those rare bird if you are interested. Weather is enjoyable and road conditions are good one can enjoy ride next to sea shore in some parts of the journey. Sea shores are neat and no littering noticed. Overall great.
Overnight journey from Dwarka to Somnath, it was a comfortable journey. Else one may travel by road as well. However, I recommend train as it was the best for journey. We booked our tickets in 3rd AC, it was nice and clean.
We had a night journey from Dwaraka to Somnath and I had a side upper booking so got the train and slept. But as known the railway are never to the expectations. The train was last by 15-20 mins at Dwaraka Station and very huge crowd was waiting for it. Train stopped for around 5 minutes.
Experience is overall good. It is around 240 kms. You will enjoy seeing lot of windmills on both sides of the highway. Roads are in good condition and travel time 4-5 hours. Small huts on road side where you can rest and take photographs. Marine drive on the way where road and sea are parallel.
