Half Moon Beach is a small beach situated in Gokarna. It is separated from the Om Beach by a cliff from where tourists are bound to get an amazing view of the Arabian Sea. Numerous village huts in the classical Indian style can be spotted lined up by the beach giving it a rather traditional and homely touch altogether. The beach got its name from the striking resemblance that it exhibits with a half moon. Away from the civilization and into the arms of nature, this is the best place to spend time at while looking at the caves and gazing at the sky lit with stars.
Being at the beach is one of the most thrilling experiences as when you are bathing in the water of the Half Moon, all you can see ahead of you is the infinite ocean and behind is the lush and thick jungle making you feel as if you are the last living person left on the face of the earth. There are numerous exciting activities that the place offers including swimming, canoeing, paddle boats, paintball, camping, and cabins. However, there are no water sports available as such. Tourists can also unwind by going sunbathing in the afternoon and lying on hammocks in the night.
To add more to the list, the food of the shack restaurants is finger-licking good. Overseeing the entire coast of the Om Beach, the Half Moon Beach is definitely a getaway spot for all the travellers out there to travel away from the hustle and bustle of the city into nature's lap.
