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. Using our custom trip planner, Gokarna attractions like Om Beach can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

Amazing beach in Karnataka!! I went to Om Beach. Om beach derives its name from its shape, which is formed by two semi crescents joined together. The fine sand lovely rock creations here attract a lot of travellers. It is great place to spent some quality time with family and friends.. lot of photo shoots, yoga, beach football activities will be frequent through out the time
Beautiful beach, good time to visit is from October to February. Pan cakes are nice. You can try squid, prawns, crab and fish there it's tasty. You can camp by the beach on the night. It's a serene and nice place to be.
