Go by trekking. Do not hire a ferry..
Going by ferry looses the charm of the journey. Take your own food and water

The beach can be reached by trekking over a hillock adjacent to Om beach or by taking a boat from Om beach. The trek route is recommended as it offers magnificent views of the sea and the beach from atop the hillock. There is one shack at the beach but it is recommended to carry your own food and water if you intend to stay. You have to take your own tent if you wish to stay here. The beach is small as compared to Om and Kudle beaches but offers you the luxury of a private beach as there are only a handful of people at this beach at a given time. The beach is serene. One can easily spend an hour here swimming in the sea without a care in the world.

This beach is isolated from other beaches. You have to hike for a long path to reach here. Only one shop is there at this beach. Otherwise there’ll be no one in the beach.

Theis is another stunning and isolated beach in Gokarna. We went there via boat ride from Kudle beach. If you love trekking then one can also trek from Paradise beach to reach there. The beach shape is like half circle so it got the name Half moon beach. Gokarna has full of virgin beaches each of which amazed us.

Serene beach. Since there are many beaches in Gokarna, tourists have plenty of options to choose from.
