Gokara - Golden sand beaches
Birds having fun
We stayed at Haripriya lodge in Gokarna,Couple who manage this lodge are extremely good, you can see people from all other countries enjoying south Indian food over there.
Mr. Anand and and his wife
did u also go to murudeshwar?? the beach there is more pristine than gokarna!! :smile:
I have visited Murudeshwar but that is further down than gokarna so i did not go to ,since my next visit was to Goa.
arent murdeshwar's beaches too rough to enter the waters! i havent gone there, just heard of it!
have been to gokarna multiple times and and find the beaches over just awesome! Om beach has become little crowded now! kudle beach is great, paradise and half moon beaches are too good...for last two you need to do some trekking to reach or take a boat. kudle requires brisk 5 mins walk.
We stayed in the lodge for the night we planned to visit Gokarna beach in the morning but heavy coastal rain played spoil sport. we started our journey towards Goa while it was pouring cat's and bells!!

Shams you are right beach near to the murdeshwar temple is crowded and little dangerous too.I heard honnavar beach which is near by is better.
for my Gokarna beaches are my favorites, I just love the old town and the clam relaxed environment in the beach.
Few photo's of lodge surroundings
Heavy continuous rains at Gokarna will fill the road near the temple with water. Water level can be more than the GC of our cars. But the water level will come down fast if rain stops as it is flowing to the sea which is near. I had experienced it few years back.
Can you PM the contact No of the Lodge and the rates
what i meant is water is much clearer in murudeshwar than in gokarna...as for the safety..well i entered neither of the beaches..just photographed them..so i cant comment on it!!
