About Half Moon Beach, Gokarna

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 - Write a Review

  • Get away from the crowd and the litter it brings.. this beach is hard to reach and harder to leave. At times, the beach has no power, no people and no trace of civilization. The path to the beach gives you an panoramic view of the Arabian sea. The breath taking view is worth all the struggle of trekking.

  • Well to our surprise there wasn't anyone on the beach not many people visit here as the trail is quite dangerous but its one of the pristine beaches of gokarna

  • Awesome view of the beach from the hills along side. Clean and neat. Not at all crowded .

  • Don't go during rainy season

  • View of sea and hills alongside is mesmerising.This beach is in half moon shape so it called this name.Take a boat ride so that can see the dolphins also
