Gokarna has many beaches, each one looking more beautiful than the other. All are small ones and the smallest among them gets its name from the very fact - Kudle beach (the word Kudle comes from the local word for 'small'). The beach is surrounded by hillocks, and the view from the top is stunning...
To the left is Om Beach, and to the right is the main Gokarna Beach. Separating them are the mountains... or hillocks. To get to either beach, one has no choice other than take the long road around the hills or climb over them!
In fact, to get to both, Kudle, as well as Om Beach, one has to climb down the hill!! Vehicles only reach the road atop the hill, and then there are steps cut into the rock, which help us get to the beach.
Kudle Beach was empty when we visited, since it was off season. We were told that during the peak season, there wouldnt be space to sit there! We, however, had all the time, and the space, and simply sat by the shore as Samhith happily collected shells!
