The beach is one of the most beautiful in all of India. Surrounded by forested hills and facing the sunset you will be dreaming of returning to it as soon as you have gone. You will carry the soothing sound of the rolling waves and the sight of the magical sunsets in your mind for a long time after you have left. Everyone loves Kudle!

As well as swimming and sunbathing you can enjoy sunset jam sessions with talented musicians from around the world.
There are no clubs and discos on Kudle Beach but what better than an impromptu beach party around a fire with music and dancing under the stars. And for the more adventurous how about a night swim to be amazed by the phosphorescent plankton that is found in these waters.
Sea turtles often come to lay their eggs in the sand and if you are lucky you can see one of these beautiful creatures. Dolphins are regularly seen jumping through the waves and the land is a paradise of birds including peacocks, kingfishers and the endangered hornbills.
The area is a beach lovers paradise. As well as Kudle Beach you can enjoy many other beaches including Paradise Beach, Om Beach, Half Moon beach, Nirvana Beach and the 8km long Main Beach. They are easily reached by beautiful walks over the headlands, by boat or by taxi. The 2 hour trek from Kudle Beach to Paradise Beach, passing through Om and Half Moon beaches, is a must for anyone visiting the area.
Om Beach is so called because of its distinctive shape. Spend a day here swinging in a hammock in the shade and sipping an ice cold beer, going in the calm water for a refreshing dip and enjoying a lunch of fresh caught fish in one of the beach shacks.
Half Moon beach is the smallest and quietest beach in Gokarna. You will forget the rest of the world exists and, more often than not, you can have the whole beach to yourself.
All the beaches can be reached by the regular boat services that are available here. Look out for dolphins as you ride the blue water and be amazed at the remarkable beauty of the Konkan coast.
Gokarna is one of the holiest places in all of India. Known as the Varanasi of the south and home to the reverred Atma (soul) Shiva Lingam it is always bustling with pilgrims visiting the many temples found here. Despite its spiritual significance it has remained a charming, small coastal town with just 3 main streets. Temple lovers and photographers can spend hours exploring and soaking up the tranquil atmosphere.
Tucked away down a little alley you will find the Kottiteerta, the holy lake of Gokarna where pilgrims come for a ritual bath before visiting the temples. Gokarna is a very photogenic place and you simply have to just point and click your camera anywhere to be guaranteed beautiful photos.
Anywhere you explore in the area you will find there are many treasures to be discovered. The age and timelessness of this place are everywhere to be seen.
The highlight of the festival season is Shivaratri which this season takes place on the 25th February 2017. Many days of worship and celebration culminate in the pulling of the giant holy chariot while everyone hurls bananas at it for good luck. If you are not around for Shivaratri this year don't worry as there are many colourful festivals in Gokarna practically every day of the year.
