Lay off your clothes dive in one of the most clean waters on Indian boundaries (after Lakshwadweep and Andamans). The sea is so calm that you can swim to the horizon. We swam to the boundaries we can, but you will find people dissapearing in the endlessness of the sea and then coming back. Yes, It is intriguing and relaxing at the same time. If you look around you will find folks lost in their own world they have made in this place. Some you will find indulged in Yoga, some in meditation on the cliff, some tanning their bodies, some high and on the other side of the moon. You will never be tired of the sea but if you are just go out and lie back in the sand till your heart cries out to you to go in again.
Don't forget to pack UNO cards, Poker chips Frisbee and Whatnot. Order some food and go by the taxi rule of 'ROLL ONE SMOKE ONE'. Play UNO till one of you accidentally drops beer on the cards and you have to dry them on the sunlight. Or otherwise take a diary out of bag and start giving words to all the lunacy inside your head. Also, you can enjoy reading if you like doing so and trust no one will disturb you. You just can't find a better place to find a meaning, to find THE BREAK you were looking for...
Spend the evening lurking around in OM beach and you can have some bonfire and music during the night. You can also witness the occasional night parties at half-moon beach if you are lucky.
For me I can live a few days at the same beach but if you are short on time, head to Kudle beach on Foot the Next day. Don't use an auto but you can rent a bike and explore the town and culture. Go to forest trails, talk with people around the world, soak in the natural beauty and you will end up in Kudle Beach. Either you can repeat the same never tiring activity in the Kudle beach or you can put up your own manifesto because you are master of your fate and captain of your soul.
After you are done with all of it. Go back to your stay, straighten your legs, clean up and grab a bite at the very fond cafes by the sea.
For a traveler never gets tired of a destination so appealing until he captures every little there is to that place in himself but since your weekend is coming to end, you can take the evening bus back to wherever you came from and take back all the rejuvenating, haunting, appealing, stoned memories of Gokarna with you.
