Gokarna Beach Walk

Gokarna has five known beaches. Gokarna, Kudle, Om, Half Moon and Paradise. First three are well-known and have all kinds of facilities and the last two as of now doesn't offer much. In a recent trip we stayed at Linger Gokarna which is on the other side (to north) and all the other beaches were to our south. All of them are connected through small trails which are very walkable. We walked from Linger -> Gokarna -> Kudle -> Om and return on the same path, totalling around 17Kms. We could have continued to Half moon and Paradise. But that would have been too much. Other way is to walk one way to all the beaches and return by an Auto. Cycling could be an interesting option too. I would suggest a light MTB that can be used on wet beach sand, trails and light weight to carry up the stairs.

Below I have embedded the map of the walking path which we took with notes. You can also download the GeoJSON/GPX map files that can be used with mobile apps for navigating.

Have fun and let me know.
