Gokarna, Karnataka

Been there recently?

Gokarna in Karnataka is a small town located on the coast of Karwar. This multifaceted town offers a wide range of adventure sports in addition to magnificent beaches and storied temples. These temples have been drawing thousands of visitors and worshippers every year since ancient times. One of Gokarna’s five well-known beaches, Om Beach, is shaped like the Hindu letter “Om.” The other beaches are Gokarna, Kudle, Half Moon, and Paradise. Cow’s ear is the literal translation of the name Gokarna, which may refer to the ear-shaped confluence of two rivers. The drive to Gokarna is very picturesque, taking in both the vast blue Arabian Sea and the imposing rocky cliffs of the Western Ghats on either side. The Arabian Sea’s rolling blues and cliffs encircle most of Gokarna’s beaches, providing picturesque views of the sea and skies in all directions. The majority of the beaches feel private because these rocks separate them from the town and the other beaches. Gokarna has recently attracted a large number of adventure seekers due to its terrain. Water sports like banana boat rides, dolphin watching, and jet skiing are among the most popular things to do here.
