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.

We went to Om Beach and Kudle Beach at the end of low season, so not a lot was open and not a lot of people around. This would've been more than fine, however we were disappointed to find that both beaches were absolutely covered in rubbish and pollution. My partner said that it was completely different five years ago when she last visited, so it stands to reason that tourism and human encroachment is to blame to for the degradation of the natural environment, which is sad. After taking several hours to get there from central Goa, we ended up leaving after one night and heading north to Mandrem for a cleaner, nicer, more relaxing experience. Gokarna beaches would have been beautiful once!

Om beach has fine sand and lovely rock formations . Fishermen boats, cafes , small local restaurants and sacred cows roaming freely whilst sea eagles and kites soar above your head. The sea is dangerous for swimming as it has whirlpools. If you are lucky you can get amazing sunset photos here.

On the day of our arrival it was raining heavily we could visit the temple only . Next day it was a sunny day it was a 5 km distance from the town . we engaged an auto for 3 hrs rs. 300 first we visited Om Beach.. you have to walk quite a bit distance to reach the beach It was a wonderful beach with very few visiters. Unlike tamilnadu beaches western ghat beaches are located between hilly rocky area..... fabulous....eventhough danger area are marked by red pole ...visiters tempted to go beyond the area ...such is the bueaty of the beach.... Unlike kudle beach this has pucca pathway...must visit if you fit enough

A nice place to sit & relax. The water is rough on this beach & so is the sand. We just spent half an hour here before it got dark. You need to walk down a few stairs to access this beach. After it gets dark, there is hardly anything to do here. There is shack on the beach where a few foreigners were seated. There are no lights on the road leading to or away from the beach.
