A coastal town, Kumta is wonderfully close to Gokarna. The lovely beach town is centrally located and is at a convenient distance from lovely touristy places, including Om Beach and Gokarna Temple. Though there is nothing much to do here besides enjoying the scenery, the beach town makes for an ideal holiday. From lazing at the beach to enjoying the stunning views, there is much to explore here. The Aghanashani River along which Kumta is located, enhances the beauty of the town. Take a book along or indulge in a high action afternoon of rock climbing for a perfect day at Kumta. For foodies, there are tons of small restaurants here that serve wonderful seafood and local delicacies. There are also many small homestays here that offer yoga sessions and meditation workshops that will complete your experience.
