We arrived at Gokarna road railway station around 10:30 am by the Madgaon passenger that started at 5:40 am from Mangalore ,you could always get the Mangala Lakshadweep Express or Netravati from Kerala to reach Mangalore or Kumta. Kumta is just one stop before Gokarna road on Mangalore to Delhi route. Gokarna is around 15km from Kumta and there are buses available only till 7:30pm. From Gokarna road railway station we walked over to the bus stop in the sweltering heat. The local bus stop was around 80 percent tourists and half of those tourists were foreigners. 15 mins later we reached Gokarna bus station. From there we walked through the town and towards Kudle beach . The town is full of touristy shops and foreigners. These shops camouflage a more religious side of Gokarna -the one with the temples. These shops hosts a variety of goods and services ,from family restaurants,bars,t- shirts , frisbees,bracelets ,chains, tattoo parlours ,chillums,bongs and every other necessities a tripper requires. After the town there is a stretch where the road starts inclining . The hills before the beaches . Its almost a long walk but since it was our first time it wasn't that tiring. We reached Kudle beach by 11 am . The view was just breath taking. Beaches bordered by hills, some hills were barren and some are covered by vegetation like coconut trees etc. The water was very pristine and was shining under the sun. We enquired in shacks about their rates and availability. Finally we settled in an shack which had a stunning view of the Kudle beach. The rent was 750rs per day for 3 people . So we had ample space in the shack. We ate some food from our shack and decided to chill in Kudle itself . After spending some time in Kudle in the evening we left to Om beach which an 30 min walk from Kudle . Om beach was as beautiful as other beaches, we could identify it's shape from the hills itself. We walked the full length of Om beach and settled in a nice shack for some food. While we were waiting for the food a team at the edge of Om beach started some fireworks . It was an awesome sight to see. We had our food and trekked back to Kudle . We sat on the beach watching the starlit sky and hearing the waves until we were tired .
