We drove to Kudle beach from Gokarna town. It was a small trek down from the car parking point up in the hill. We planned to book the stay on reaching the beach but since it was a hot day of summer, we were parched from the shack-hunt. We finally opted for a small shack for 600/night. It was right on the beach having the facility of campfire at night. We freshened up, had breakfast and started for our onward journey to OM beach through a small jungle route. The sequence of beaches for the trek is Kudle-Om-Halfmoon-Paradise.
We reached Om after a laid back trek of an hour. It was an wise decision to carry a lot of water, cap and portable speakers. The first sight of crescent shaped beach and the salty moist air was enough to soothe the tiredness. We stopped for a late lunch and proceeded to half moon and paradise on local ferry. It was already getting dark and we got a good deal for 500/boat. The boat took us to the middle of the sea and we were lucky to see a couple of dolphins.
Remember, the boat doesn’t stop at any of the beaches but give a beach view from the ferry.
We reached om beach a again it was a trek back to kudle through the dark dense jungle. All my wish of adventure got fulfilled.
We set up for campfire and jamming session by the beach at night. The starry nights and cool breeze - oh it was perfect in all sense.
