The famed Om Beach at Gokarna, Uttara Kannada District, Karnataka. This is almost Karnataka’s best kept secret when it comes to tourist destinations, though it is a hot favorite on the international hippie trail circuit. At a distance of 500 kilometers from Bangalore and 100 km from Madgaon, Goa, Gokarna is a must-visit location. The winter months are the best bet. The water and the sky are both untouched and unpolluted, a heavenly shade of dark aquamarine… Part of the breath taking Konkan Circuit.
