So it all started as a new year plan; the best place one can visit during new year’s would be somewhere near a beach and whenever you think of a beach the first place that pops up is Goa. But on a low budget making it to Goa was not possible for us so we came up with the second best place where we can get anything close to what Goa was 4-5 years back and i.e. Gokarna.
Gokarna is a small town on the western coast of India in the Kumta taluk of Uttara Kannada district of the state of Karnataka.
Dabolim, Goa is the nearest airport, and by train Ankola (20km) is the nearest railway station for most trains but certain trains like the Matsyagandha Express halt at Gokarna itself. Bus services are also available from Bangalore and Goa. From Dabolim, you can take a taxi, a bus or a train to Gokarna. Although, travelling by road is recommended.
