About the beaches in Gokarn

Gokarn Beach is easy to reach from the main village but for Kudley Beach you need to cross a high hill in order to reach there. For Om Beach you need to take rickshaw ride as well as to the Paradise Beach, but for the Paradise Beach you still need to walk rather long time in the midst of the forest in order to reach that beach. Alternatively you can go by a boat to any of these beaches.

5 reasons to visit the amazing Gokarn in India

Sunset and horizon in Gokarn, India

Gokarn, also written as Gokarna, is a small village in the West coast of India, in the state of Karnataka, which is a neighboring state to Goa. Gokarn is located some 145km towards South from Goa, and it is a religiously significant place for Hindus, which is why it is very common to see there pilgrims dressed in black.

You can reach Gokarn easily by train, bus or car, from Goa, but of all these 3 the busride will most likely consume most of your energy, though nothing beats the warm wind blowing through the bus windows during sunset time.

Here’s 5 reasons to visit Gokarn –

1. If you are hippy minded missing the good old days of Goa, you can get some of those hippy vibes back from Kudley Beach, Om-beach and especially Paradise Beach in Gokarn. Paradise Beach you can reach by boat and sleep overnight there in some very simple huts by the sea. Sunbathing also allowed.

2. Sunsets by the sea in Gokarn have been a way more beautiful than in many other places in India. One of the best places to enjoy sunset in Gokarn is on top of the hill between Kudley Beach and Gokarn Beach. The wind is very smooth. Just remember to return to the village before it gets too dark.

3. Gokarn will show you the real beautiful India, which is not too modern. It will also show you some incredible things as well, like a man and a woman walking on the same street without a shirt and without any problem from other people. See the attached photo if you don’t believe it.

4. The small streets of Gokarn will give you an idea of the real life of dedicated Hindus.

5. Restaurants in Gokarn are often very spicy for the Western tongue, but one small cafe there used to make really fabulous uttapams. That taste could make the customer come back all the way from Finland. Don’t know if that place exists anymore, but at least in Om Beach there’s one very nice restaurant, namely Namaste Cafe.

Raj Baga Beach, Goa, India; 2015

Raj Baga Beach, Goa, India

Raj Baga Beach is a beautiful, rather small silent beach located in South-Goa, in-between Patnem Beach and Talpona Beach. When I visited there, I didn’t see any other tourists, just a few fishermen’s huts.

One fisherman there came by and offered me a boat ride along the nearby Talpona river, but otherwise there was no activity for tourists, except a golf course, which was arranged by the five star resort The Lalit Golf & Spa Resort, located on this beach, having hurdles around it. This resort seemed very suitable for a person longing for peace and quietness, and having a big bank account.

Accommodation cheaper than five stars I don’t recall seeing in Raj Baga Beach, but you will find it on the other Goan beaches, which I’ve written about in the linked article.

Beautiful beaches of Vuosaari

Vuosaari has got to be the most beautiful part of the capital of Finland, Helsinki, with its forests and beautiful beaches by the sea, where nature is very much alive and present.

You can get to Vuosaari easily by metro from the Helsinki centre, or even straight by ship from Germany. Have not yet tried that ship though, but it’s on my list.

Smaller boats will take you to Kaunissaari and Hakaniemi from Vuosaari during summertime, and nowadays even supping is also common there. It looks like a fun thing to do!

Picnic by the Vuosaari beach is a nice timepass on a sunny day during summertime and there’s also a few nice restaurants and cafes worth paying a visit.

In the video attached you can see few of them Vuosaari beaches during summer, with images and music by Indivue.

Bogmalo Beach is rather small secluded beach inbetween two seaside hills near the city of Vasco da Gama, in the middle of the coastline of Goa, India.

The beach is relatively quiet, and there is only one five-star hotel, which you can see in the photo, and also couple of restaurants as well as and a few independent small shops at least during the winter, when the tourist season is happening.
