Kudle Beach, Gokarna Overview

Kudle Beach is one of the many beaches of Gokarna, situated only a few minutes' walk from Gokarna Beach or Om Beach. The beach is a paradise for those who love peace and quietude while they travel. 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 noiseless.

The beach is usually deserted, except for the peak months from November to February, when it is populated by foreign travellers and backpackers. They choose the Kudle beach for solitude and privacy. The sea is calm and safe enough to have a bath or simply for wetting your feet at the shoreline, but it is always better to be careful. Hiding behind a hillock, this mesmerising beach is a haven for sea lovers who want to observe and enjoy the vastness in front rather than be a part of a frolicking crowd. If you are planning to stay there overnight, take note that lodging is tough to find during off seasons. There are a few proper hotels, which tend to be full. 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.
