  • Some of the exemplary Homestays in Gokarna promise azure ocean, sun-kissed beaches, and surreal sunsets in the distant hillocks when you arrive in the hippie’s paradise. Homestays are home away from home and the concept of bestowing a homely environment to the travellers is one of a kind. In the Uttara Kannada district lies a religious and scenic town that we fondly have known as Gokarna. 

    Uttara Kannada is gifted with secluded villages, pristine beaches, natural reserves, offbeat trekking trails and magnanimous waterfalls. Gokarna has a long stretch of five beaches mainly Gokarna beach, Kudle Beach, Om Beach, Half Moon Beach and Paradise Beach which are often trekked together and is a famous trek trail.

    Gokarna literally stands for “cow’s ear” and there are many mythological tales associated with this sleepy pilgrimage town on the Western Ghats. Owing to its emerging popularity, a number of Gokarna homestays are being opened up for the convenience of the tourists. Gokarna is situated on the confluence of Gangavati and Aghanashini rivers which make the topography more interesting for the adventure enthusiasts as the place is more viable for sports like coracle rides, rafting, canoeing, trekking, jungle walks etc.

    Trains and buses plying from major cities like Mangalore, Bangalore, Hubli, Panjim etc can be taken to reach Gokarna. In order to reach Gokarna by train, one can get off at stations such as Kumta, Madgaon, Ankola, and Karwar. For travelling other than beaches in Gokarna, one can visit the auspicious temples in the town such Mahabaleshwara Temple, Maha Ganapati Temple, Bhadrakali and Shree Venkataramana Temple. Yoga and surfing are two of the most practising art and sports in Gokarna making it a Yoga and surf centre of the western ghats.
