Three quick escapes to sign up for
Beach bumming by Gokarna
A perfect trail that includes Goa, Karwar and Gokarna, it kicks off in idyllic Palolem, in South Goa. From here, drive down to Karwar, soak in the beautiful West coast scenery, and reach the secluded island retreat of Kurumgad. A two-hour drive from Karwar lands you in Gokarna for more beach bumming but with a twist! Try surfing, catamaran rides, yoga on the beach, treks, water sports, dolphin-spotting and more.
