This beach is very near to Mahabaleshwar temple and almost all people visiting the temple visit this beach too. Compared to all other beaches in Gokarna, this seems quite crowded ... but unlike all other beaches in Gokarna, this beach is easily accessible.

This beach is situated near Mahabaleswara temple, and easily accessible by car, It is not so clean compare to other beaches around Gokarn and it is crowded most of the time.

This beach is close to Gokarna town. Cleaner than other famous beaches of India but when compared to other beaches in this stretch, it is not that very clean. Tides are low. Nice place to play in the water and enjoy a swim.

Paradise Beach is best but there are some spots between Om and Paradise that are also nice ~ use caution of the cliffs when camping or hiking there :)

Hi Shibin, Paradise beach is best for camping in gokarna. it is little bit far from crowded om beach and you have to trek or take boat to reach there. Another option is kumta beach which is almost 30km far from gokarna.
