Gokarna is untainted by tourism place where the streets are full of life. Everywhere stalls with colorful jewelry and fried in hot oil sweeties. Local shopkeepers are not trying to convince to enter their shops. You can walk through the streets without anyone nagging.
When we got to Kudle Beach after hike over the hill our faces brightened up. Half an hour walk with heavy backpacks up and down got paid off with a view of this peaceful paradise. This tiny and abounded piece of beach is surrounded by hills that makes is being a hidden treasure. People here is an interesting crowd. Some of them are doing yoga, others dance with a hula hoop. You can see beautiful performances of acrobats and dancers. Kudle Beach feels like taken from a movie about hippies in the 60s. When night falls, people are going back to their hats. Only few like us are still enjoying the sky full of stars and listening to the bongos.
