Kudle Beach, Gokarna Overview

Kudle Beach is one of the many beaches of Gokarna, situated only a short trek from Om Beach. A complete recluse, this beach offers the most silent and serene atmosphere to enjoy a sunset, a walk along the shore or simply sit and observe the never-ceasing tides. Many local people prefer this beach for a morning or evening walk or practising yoga, as the Kudle beach is not invaded by large groups of tourists and as a result, has a very little crowd and quite serene.

The beach is usually deserted, except for the peak months from November to February, when it is flocked by foreign travellers and backpackers who choose Kudle beach for its privacy. The sea is calm and shallow enough to have a bath or simply for dipping your feet, but it is always better to be careful. If you are planning to stay here overnight, there are a few proper hotels, which tend to be full during the peak seasons. However, from around October to March, the local people also put up temporary shacks and huts for makeshift accommodation and food. They are not the best option, but an option nevertheless. If you are of the adventurous type a night spent on the beach in a small hut listening to the sound of the waves is as perfect as it can get.

Tips For Visiting Kudle Beach

1. The beach is sandy, and the water is safe enough to swim, but the lack of lifeguards and an overall lack of crowd means one has to be very careful about their safety.
2. Keep a decent sunscreen handy to prevent those everlasting tans!
3. Carry water with you as the local water might not be very healthy to drink.
4. It is not directly accessible for vehicles. So you'd have to walk for a bit through small paths to reach the beach.
