Travelling from Bangalore. Take NH-4 till Haveri and take a left turn. Till Haveri road is awesome. Its 4 Lanes. After haveri around 20 Kms road is little bumpy. But GPS will surely help. Not sure which all places came in between. But journey was good. It took me around 7 hrs from Bangalore to reach Gokarna.

The journey to Gokarna was awesome, especially while coming back. If you can stay awake can see the coastal journey between valleys. It's beautiful - the entire coastal region, "the western ghats". If you want to jog, its the best. It has a parking facility on beach side. You can take your bus also to the beach.

We five of us travelled in my friend's I-20 with my friend (car owner) being the only driver. We started at 5 am from Bangalore and reached Kumta at 1 pm. Owing to the quality of highway, my friend dint even feel the slightest of the problem roaming though the highway. The highway offers scenic highlights including windmills of Chitradurga. You would find many Kamat Restaurants to serve your bellies.

We had booked out tickets on paytm.com for a friday night boarding to Gokarna. The bus picked us up from our pickup point and then we boarded the bus for the journey at Majestic. The condition of the bus was good. The way to Gokarna is through a lot of hills and valleys, making it an enjoyable one. However, you dont get you see too many thing as its a night journey. The roads felt good, except for the fact that its all twisty and curvey. The buses stop twice on the way, so options for dinner is always ON. The journey is approx 9 hrs, excluding the time taken by the pickup van. The arrival to the destination was on time. I would advice to book your resort in advance - the best of the options are on the Kudle beach. Take an auto from the bus stand to Kudle beach (150 Rs).

"Rented a car and drove down to Gokarna"

5/7
Posted 27 Oct

We took rented a car from Zoomcar in Bangalore (they offer cars for rent, without chauffeurs) and drove down to Gokarna. It is a long drive, takes you on the NH-4 for about 300 km and then moved on to a number of state highways/village roads depending on which route is suggested by maps. The roads are not very wide so you have to be confident of your driving skills. But it is a beautiful drive once you get off the NH through forests. If you love driving, you will love these roads. Would recommend an SUV or at least a sedan with good ground clearance for this drive.

Sorry, we could not find preference of Travellers for this route.

Gokarna – The Perfect Holiday

Gokarna is a quiet, laid-back seaside town on the Western Coast of India that has seen many changes over the years. It was mainly known as a temple town and most of the visitors came there for pilgrimage at the famous temple of Lord Shiva and the Mahaganapati Temple.

Things to Do

Sightseeing in Gokarna largely involves the beaches. There are four beaches in Gokarna, Kudle, Paradise, Half Moon and Om beach, which is the favourite of most travellers. The view of this beach from the top of the hill is breath taking.

There are many options for boat rides to different beaches, treks and water activities here. One can visit the temples or simply ride around and take in the sights and lives of the people there.

Accommodation

Hotels in Gokarna range from very cheap huts for backpackers on a budget, to comfortable and luxurious rooms in resorts. It’s easy to get accommodation near the beach but booking in advance in the peak seasons makes more sense.
