Not a cleanest beach. only thing is you can do boat riding. Don't visit in summer, as the beach area is too hot. Do visit in other seasons, you can enjoy breeze.

Visited along with my sister,the beach is actually clean. Om Beach is full of foreigners,small kids selling yummy plum cakes around.People performing juggling and other activities. We ate prawns in the restaurant on the beach side. The best part of the beach is the soothing atmosphere,especially during the sunset time when people come together & dance on music. I along...

Not the cleanest beach (nor indeed the dirtiest) in India. Water is excellent but the persistent bead sellers were annoying. Why do 20 different people sell all the same rubbish? Who knows. Overall, solid 3.5 (rounded down).

The first thing we get to mind when we say Gokarna is OM Beach. This place will be very very crowded most of the times. The water is not so clean. It can be maintained better. But one more important thing about OM Beach is, it is the starting point for a trek to 4 different beaches which cannot be... More

Om beach - great design and name due to its unique shape. Just a 10 minute hike, walk from Kudle beach - it's the second beach you would try out after Kudle. Not recommended to stay here as its not as good as Kudle or Gokarna main beach. Decent place to have a nice drink, take a break and make... More

One of the popular beaches of Gokarna. I had a nice time here. The food of Namaste Cafe was good. Don't stay here over night, choose kudle beach instead. Trek to go Kudle beach or to come here from Kudle beach, you will have a good experience. Rules are very strict in here in regards of Alcohol.

I stayed at Dolphin Bay Cafe at Om Beach for a week with my boyfriend. It was a beautiful time, the beachshacks are all quite nice and the food is good. We did a lot of walks and Om Beach is a great starting point to go and see the other beaches. Lovely sunset views, some yoga and good food!

This beach mostly is accompanied with young aged crowd and foreigners. The beach is clean and have quite famous cafes around. Beach attracts the visitors with the Banana ride/Boating/Kayaing and other water rides. To reach the beach from the vehicle parking area one has to descend through rough patch of rocky path and stairs. On a sharp sunny day its... More

I will rate it close second to Kudle beach. This beach is quite stretched out and one can easily walk along the coast for long. I loved this place especially the sunsets.
