Create an itinerary including Half Moon Beach
Nestled in a small, crescent-shaped bay, Half Moon Beach attracts mostly travelers looking to escape civilization and enjoy the serenity of unspoiled nature. To reach the beach, you have to hike from the neighboring Om beach, since this secluded strip of sparkling sand and black rocks is inaccessible from the road. The lush jungle in the background and the infinite ocean in front of you will make you feel like the last person left on earth. The cliff that separates the two beaches offers sprawling views over the Arabian Sea. To visit Half Moon Beach and other attractions in Gokarna, use our Gokarna travel route planner.
