There’s no place better for socialising than Gokarna. Drown your sorrows at a pub and share your heartbreak.

HolidayIQ Traveller Anurag Saha says, “The Om, Kudle, Gokarna and Paradise beaches are typical tourist spots. The various cafes and restaurants on the beach were reasonably priced and served South Indian as well as North Indian cuisines. The place is not really a shopping destination and we did not buy anything in fact.” Adds HolidayIQ Traveller Sheron, “The Namaste cafe is located brilliantly. It is situated right at the beach. They have a restaurant right at the edge of the beach. Sip a glass of beer listening to the noisey waves. The breakfast here is great. The Israeli breakfast is a must try.”
