Om Beach is situated in Gokarna. The name Gokarna is derived from the fact that the rivers Agnashini and Gangavati confluence weirdly and get the shape of Govina Kivi (Cow's ear). The famous Mahabaleshwara Temple is also situated here just 6 kms away.
It is a conservative Hindu pilgrimage town, home to several temples and festivals. The town itself is full of locals and pilgrims, and doesn't have much in the way of facilities for tourists, other than a handful of guesthouses and local restaurants.
This beach is in the shape of Om in Devanagari script when viewed from top of Western Ghats.
