The beaches in town are beautifully connected to each other through uneven, craggy rocky paths and dense shrubs.

From the serene
Paradise beach to the popular Om beach, you can traverse your way through on foot. Promising an awe inspiring view of the Arabian Sea, the trekking routes between the beaches are usually quiet stretches with only the melodious sounds of the birds for company. With the occasion crashing of the waves against the rocks, a lone dog and a few shacks, there is not much you’ll spot on your trekking trips.
If you don’t have too many days at hand, you can see all the beaches within a span of one day. Breakfast at
Kudle beach, lunch at Om beach and dinner on the shores of Paradise beach surely spells a perfect holiday. The trekking paths between the beaches aren’t very difficult and are quite easy to navigate. With a sort of well defined route, there isn’t much chance of losing your way. With shacks on the way, you can always ask your way around from owners besides from the occasional fellow trekkers you may bump into during your little adventure.


Tired after a long day of trekking and want to give those tired feet a rest, you are in luck. Autos and boat taxis are your refuge if you just can't walk anymore. Found at all the beaches, these autos and taxis will easily take you back to your preferred spot.


Recharge your camera batteries, pack your sunglasses, some snacks and loads of water bottles for your thrilling trekking sprees. It is advisable to also carry a torch, mosquito repellants and a basic first aid kit for emergency situations. If you are trekking alone, it would be wise to inform someone about your whereabouts to be on the safer side. The contact number of your hotel will come in handy lest you lose your way in the beautiful city of Gokarna.


With all these things taken over, it’s time to explore and discover this gorgeous town. Blue skies, clear waters and an abundance of greenery will make this journey all the more memorable.
