Half Moon Beach - Review

A relatively secluded beach located next to the more famous and crowded Om beach, the Half Moon Beach has a lovely crescent shaped shore with fine sands and clean waters. There are shacks where you can relax and sip a chilled beer if you like. Some also play soccer and volleyball here as the sand area is quite big. One can also take leisurely barefoot walks on the beach- the sand feels wonderful under the feet.

Half Moon Beach, Gokarna Reviews

  • Good beach. This beach is just next to OM beach. Has shape of half moon and hence half moon beach. Its a good beach but sometimes the guards dnt let you go there saying its dangerous to swim there. Rest is up to you. So enjoy. Its definitely better than OM as less crowded.

  • Trek to paradise has to be one of the best ones to take if you visit Gokarna. Always have an amazing time when i am here.

  • Nice view best if you visit for sunrise and if you stay for entire night in tent its gets really crazy cool breeze and tides. The path up to here from Om Beach is very narrow and be careful on the rocks in water as they are very sharp and tides are rough you may get injured. I got 2-3 cuts in the leg with in seconds due to tidal push on these rocks. More than that we have to walk back to room where we are staying. So keeping these things in mind be safe & cautious. Enjoy yourself visit...

  • Wonderful beach! From all the beaches in Gokarna, this is definitely my favorite. It is a more secluded, small beach with almost nobody. There is a lovely, basic place to stay in little cabins with good food and drinks. You can do nice walks to the other beaches and be sure to visit the om beach viewpoint on the way. If you like peace and quiet, this is the place to be!

  • Jst like the name goes.. Half moon. Peaceful n nice.. But a struggle to reach there
