This beach gets it name from the shape of the coast in this are. It is one of the popular beaches in gokarna and is easily accessible via road, unlike most beaches in gokarna. However if you wish you could still trek to this beach from other beaches with clearly demarkated trekking trails. This beach is a relatively crowded one and may not be the perfect place for you if you are looking for a calm empty beach. This place is mesmerizing regardless of the crowd and is house to the extremely popular namaste cafe which is an extremely helpful place to hang out in the evening.
