With tourism increasing in India and worldwide, few areas remain where you will not see crowds. Though one might adore bustling, colourful, and crowded locations, there are times when you want to be alone, appreciating the serenity of a place where no one else is present. If you're looking for that location, Nirvana Beach on the Karnataka coastline is the place to go.

Other well-known beaches such as Kudle, Gokarna, and Half Moon are only a short boat trip away, so you can quickly leave and relax in the booming cafés around people from across the country.

Nirvana Beach is a golden sandy beach stretching as far as the eye can see. You will find a few residents on the beach, a few visitors, a few fishing boats moored sporadically, and local youngsters going about their daily lives.

Things to do at the Nirvana Beach in Gokarna

Nirvana beach is one of the popular beaches of Karnataka and has a unique offering for all tourists and wanderlusts.

It is one of the rare beaches where you will see bioluminescent phytoplanktons illuminating the seashore at night. These small-LED like blue lights glowing near the shores are bound to take your breath away.

#Trivia: The best time to see these beauties in action is on a moonless, clear night.

Are your travel senses tickling yet?

If you want something more, you can enjoy the lazy days lying on the beach with your loved ones and enjoy the secluded spot away from the hustle. The gorgeous sunset over the horizon is a perfect way to end the day and welcome the gorgeous clear night. The azure skies are spectacular. The long beach walks, meditating in the fresh air, and enjoying a session of yoga with golden sand underneath your feet, are nothing but refreshing and rejuvenating.

The Nirvana Nature Reserve is another excellent place to enjoy wild flora and fauna, including large toads, tropical trees, and little ponds.

After a hectic time on the beach doing so many things at once, you would love to return to a quaint bonfire with delicious food and beverages. Nothing but relaxation in store for you.

If you are feeling a little more adventurous, you can charter a boat from a neighbouring town to tour all of the popular beaches in the area, including Kudle, Half Moon, Gokarna, Om, and Paradise. Because visitors do not typically use these local rentals, you get a true sense of exploring the water with the people, which is a unique experience.

#Trivia: If you are looking for a farmhouse in Kumta, you can consider Nirvana Nature Near Gokarna in Heggeri.

Resorts to stay near Nirvana beach in Gokarna

1. 5-mile Beach Resort: The resort is located on a 5-mile-long beachfront in Kumta to give visitors a spot to enjoy views of the dawn, sunset, and sea vistas. Dolphin watching (seasonal), boat cruises to Gokarna, and on-demand bonfires are the resort's recreational activities. They also include a volleyball and cricket pitch on the premises.

2. Nirvana Nature: As the name says, this lovely hotel in Gokarna is situated on Nirvana Beach. Guests can select between tree huts and cottages for their lodging. There are some excellent seafood meals to be devoured; however, they do not have a menu card, so it is best to ask about the pricing before ordering.

3. Kahani Paradise: The Kahani Paradise is a 360-degree beautiful view of the ocean and thick woodlands, perched atop a hill facing the shoreline to the south of Gokarna and the Western Ghats plummeting into the Arabian Ocean. It is recognised as one of the highest resorts in Gokarna. The ideal setting for a "paradise" holiday. Aside from the scenery, the resort offers villas and suites, which give an exquisite relaxed stay.

Places to visit near Nirvana beach

1. Murudeshwar for a day excursion: Murudeshwar is a township on the Arabian Sea coast known for the Murudeshwar shrine and the 2nd largest Shiva statue. The village is well-known among residents and tourists as a prayer site, with a busy yet golden sand beach. It is about an hour's drive from Nirvana Beach and is well worth the trip.

2. Kagal Fort Trek: The Kagal fort on the mountaintop is a half-hour uphill climb 2 kilometres from Nirvana beach. You'll be trekking with a swampy trail adjacent to rice fields, followed by a tiny woodland cover. It is a short route with several scenic and delightful views.

Next to the ocean, Kagal Hills is probably one of the finest picture-perfect sights. You would not be able to discover any evidence of the fort except for fort walls stretching for kilometres along the cliff's edge. However, the natural splendour surrounding this location never fails to wow you.

To get to Kagal fort, you may take the Gokarna or Kumta bus from Bangalore. Local bus services are available from either town to Kagal or Nirvana beach. However, you would have to walk 1.5 kilometres to get to the beach once you have descended. You can rent an auto-rickshaw to take you to Nirvana Beach.

3. Agastsyara Guhe Near Kagal Fort: You may also explore Agatsyara Guhe (Agastya's cave), only a short distance from the fort. However, bring some locals if you're going on a hike because the pathway might get tricky. It means you may get a more thorough picture of the area while also learning about some of the other great places.

How to reach Nirvana Beach

If you travel by boat, this location is not too far from the famed Kudle beach in Gokarna; however, if you travel by car, the journey is long but well worth it!

All you have to do is book a private cab from top car rental companies in Gokarna and travel a 45-kilometre route that will probably take an hour or two due to bad roads. Despite the horrible road conditions, it is well worth the trip to spend here for a couple of days of utter solitude and joy.

By Rail: It is well-connected to most South Indian locations, and the closest railway station is in Gokarna.

By Air: The nearest airport is in Dabolim in Goa which is around 3 hours from Gokarna at a distance of nearly 135 kms.

By Road: You can enjoy a road trip or take a bus from Bangalore, Goa, or Mangalore to reach Nirvana beach in Gokarna at your convenience.
