To experience an offbeat beach travel away from the party centric North Goa and lesser crowd, I choose proceeding to Gokarna for 2 nights and 3 days in January 2021. Here are the highlights of my trip:
Nearest Airport : Dabolim Airport, Goa
Nearest Railway station: Madgaon, Goa or Karwar, Karnataka
Day 1: I took a flight to Dabolim airport from Mumbai, Goa and then a rented car to Karwar as my first step to join my friends. It took approximately 3.5 hours to reach Karwar and from there we reached Gokarna within 1 hour drive. Alternatively you can use train route to Karwar and then a car or even state transport buses to reach Gokarna.
