Half a day’s bus journey away from bustling Bangalore, lies heaven. Gokarna, which is a famous Hindu pilgramage hub, attracts backpackers and beach bums alike. Hills form the backdrop of most of the pristine beaches, offering a scenic view as you soak up the sun and take in the laidback atmopshere.

The main beaches are Om Beach, Kudle Beach, Half Moon Beach and Paradise Beach, the latter two of which are only accessible by foot or boat. Gokarna is one of the best places to gorge on seafood to your heart’s content! However, just like every other place on the hippie trail, you will also be spoilt for choice with a range of multi-cuisine options, including lasagne and Nutella pancakes!

Gokarna Bucket List

  • Check out Om Beach from a height, shaped like the ‘om’ symbol
  • Buy a sturdy, locally made cloth hammock in bright colours
  • Take a boat ride and enjoy the colours of the sunset
