Gokarna is located in the state of Karnataka, and is not as popular or well-known as Goa, but it is an exceptional place. It is a place with reputation among some backpackers who go to India, the reason being its beauty and the peace that permeates here. If you come from Goa, be prepared for seven or eight hours of travel, and several local buses, but it's well worth visiting. Once you reach Gokarna Town should take a rickshaw to take you to either Om or Kudle, and from there walk about 500m. Depending on your preference choose one of the beaches-I went to Kudle beach where there are some cabins, the best is our compatriot, the Spanish Place, which costs about 6 euros.
