It's Time To Cut Loose: Gokarna
After a monastic January (giving up all your vices and spending nothing since the holidays cleared you out), it’s time to cut loose!
An ideal weekend getaway to flush off the tarmac, rush, and worries of your busy life with an exotic blend of sun, sand, waves and total relaxation. This coastal paradise will present the perfect teaser for the dream year you are going to have.
Gokarna, a small temple town on the western coast of India, famous for its beautiful beaches -Om Beach, Half moon Beach and Paradise Beach (also known as the Full moon). Om Beach, which is well known for its Om shape, jutting rocks, numerous cafes and a long stretch of sand. A narrow path from the other end of Om Beach takes you over the hills with the expansive Arabian Sea for accompaniment. The trail ends at Half Moon Beach, a tiny beach which is otherwise accessible only by a boat.
Paradise beach is the last beach on the trail which is further south of Half Moon Beach. The two remote beaches - Paradise and Half Moon gives us a taste of a decade old Goan environment where the voice of the sea speaks to your soul.
The beaches are clean, safe and well maintained, making it just right for beach camping. At night, when it gets a little colder, lighting bonfire on the beach, watching the stars shine above your head, and the serene sound of the waves is both relaxing and exciting at the same time.
However, nothing comes close to the experience of watching the moon flicker in the vitreous sea water, even as your senses revel in the warmth and aroma of the tasty food. The sea once casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever. Come fall in love with the sea, because it has got some potent power to make us think things we like to think.
