After having my breakfast, taking advantage of the weather I headed to the Kudle beach. From Om to Kudle, you have to do a short trek through the jungle and believe me its fun walking through the human foot trail to the beach.
The beach had many visitors considering it was a long weekend and the place has many shacks and guesthouses to accommodate travelers and tourist.
After absorbing the place for some time, I came back to Om Beach (where I was staying) and headed for a dip in the sea.
The beach gets its name from its shape. At the end of the beach there are a couple of shacks and my favorite was Ganesh Café where are went for lunch for all the days of my stay.
Ganesh café is open to people from all walks – travelers, tourist, solo travelers, and families. They have a rule; they don’t block rooms in advance, its first come basis.
I had lovely time sitting by the railing listening to the waves and if I was lucky I heard people playing musical interments (ektara, was what I heard one of the evening).
Life on the beach is different, you need to entertain yourself – I saw people playing beach volley ball, hula-hoop, Frisbee, practice yoga or if the waves are lucky one can also go kayaking. I soon became the part of that routine.
There were few travelers going for a trek to half-moon beach and paradise beach and I got to accompany them. It is a 30 minute trek in a little dense forest with a quirky trail, the view from the top is breath taking, do venture once at least, and you can thank me later. :)
Om beach is frequented by a lot of Israelis and people from the neighboring states, I had few interactions with them, and it was a pleasure to be part of it.
Morning run – dip in the sea – playing Frisbee with fellow travelers – chilled lemonades – soft music – life is good!
