Half Moon Beach, Gokarna

#5 of 7 in Parks in Gokarna
Nestled in a small, crescent-shaped bay, Half Moon Beach attracts mostly travelers looking to escape civilization and enjoy the serenity of unspoiled nature. To reach the beach, you have to hike from the neighboring Om beach, since this secluded strip of sparkling sand and black rocks is inaccessible from the road. The lush jungle in the background and the infinite ocean in front of you will make you feel like the last person left on earth. The cliff that separates the two beaches offers sprawling views over the Arabian Sea. To visit Half Moon Beach and other attractions in Gokarna, use our Gokarna travel route planner.

  • Very nice beach in shape of half moon. You get a beautiful view of beach, sun, mountain, trees and ocean. It's suitable for night stay on beach and spend some time with friends. You will see good number of crowd here including foreigners. This beach has few restaurants where you can get local seafood, fish, drinks all in day and night. Overall it's a must visit beach in Gokarna 🙂
  • This is an absolute Jannat! It's beautiful, distance, peaceful and has all basic amenities. Brilliant place for solo trips, honeymoon, private beach shoots.
