Create an itinerary including Om Beach
Om Beach offers scenic views and a relaxing atmosphere. Accessible only by boat or on foot, the beach is mostly frequented by locals and is rarely crowded, which means that on most days you can have the long stretch of soft sand all to yourself. Although most residents know it for its unusual shape--said to resemble the Om symbol--foreign visitors favor the beach for its water sports options, which include surfing and parasailing. With our custom trip planner, Gokarna attractions like Om Beach can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Due to its shape of the sands on the beach it gets its name OM. This is a rocky beach not suitable to get in waters.

  • 15th August 2022 : Beach is not completely accessed by the public. Life guards are restricting to enter some portion of the beach.
  • One of the best beaches in Gokarna, very clean and crystal clear water. There are lots of big rocks at the seashore that are the attraction point and enhance the beauty of this beach. Here the sunset view is very peaceful, romantic shades of red and orange across the sky. Just wanted to clear few things when you go to I’m beach with your own car so be careful at the valley because there is no specific parking place available here peoples are just park the car along the one way road and since the road is very narrow and steep slope it’s very difficult to turn the car and forward in a steep slope you my suggestion is only park your vehicle in a flat surface road don’t park on slope otherwise you will stuck or high chances of accident. Second thing also careful from local vehicles “travellers” they drive very roughly and they haven’t stopped their vehicle even on pass or horn. So my road experience was very bad. Once you park the vehicle you have to trek around 500m for the beach point through stairs. Only one cafe shack is available “Namaste Cafe” which is very good and you can enjoy the drinks and beverages here. I have clicked few snapshots you can see the natural beauty of oh beach.
