This immaculate beach is also referred to as a private beach due to the privacy it offers. Paradise Beach is also where you will find the most hippie influence, with graffiti on walls and peculiar smelling smoke in the air. Also known as the Full Moon beach; This beach has no water activities but is ideal for swimming!
Although this is separated from Kudle Beach by a small hillock, it is studded with jutting rocks, numerous cafes, and a long sand stretch. Reach here by trekking on the path. It is more of a water sports place. The coast is rocky and can leave a lot of scratches and bruises - so be careful here. You can go for Banana Ride, Jet-Skiing, Parasailing, Surfing and others for a sporty experience.
Though we were not allowed to play in paradise beach we again moved back to hells beach and played a lot. The sand is quite rough here and many tides play near the shore only. Then we started back around 5.30, advisable to start early as it will get dark and no lights and trek is through woods. I heard that outside paradise beach you would get autos to travel back.We continued back our trail to our vehicles which we had parked, and headed towards hotel.We dropped RK home and went to hotel and had good bath. Then we thought of grill and asked theHotel guys if it is available , they said we need to get coal and they had stand for the grill.
In the noon our local friend RK joined us for our next trek. These treks you need to take a small route through woods , only two wheelers are usually good to travel with , roads are bad , but the experience isworth having. We parked our bikes after some 2km , then had to trek down with the trails to half moon beach which is around 3-4km of trek , which is easy one .Suggestion is travel with groups or 5 ppl as not many people were seen on this route.The beach view was beautiful , our target was to play in paradise beach which is after 3 cliffs after half moon beach. There is no straight forward route from here the the trek gets bit tough and tricky to find the route .Wear the trekking shoes if possible , as there are sharp rocks where you need to travel.We reached hells beach and then after some circus , paradise beach .some of the glimpses were as below:
Gokarna Beach TrekThe place is all the more alluring as it offers you the best of both the worlds – trekking on the coastal sea along with the hills. Gokarna is also known as the “Golden Route “ trail. The trail involves walking thru the beautiful beach along with the rocky hills on one side and far-stretching the Arabian Sea on the other side. The route passes through many beaches starting from Kudle beach to OM beach ( popular for the shape of Om) , moving ahead till the crescent beach (also called as half Moon shaped beach ) and ends at Paradise beach . Walking thru the paradise beach is relatively difficult as the route is full of rocky hillocks.
