Gokarna is one of the most beautiful small temple towns on the coast of Karnataka. It is a really popular tourist spot known for its hippy vibes.There are many pristine beaches that you can hike to namely Kudle beach, Paradise beach and Moon beach. There are many eateries and shacks by the beach which serve some of the best cuisines of South India and also you can shop here.
Karwar is a sleepy little town located in Karnataka, when you cross over from the state of Goa. This town is often overlooked for most of the popular places in Karnataka, but this town does have its own charm. There are several small mangrove covered islands where you can go off to by a boat and explore the wilderness. The route is really picturesque and will keep you mesmerized. There is the famous Rabindranath Tagore beach, which is quite famous after this beach got a mention in his memoirs. You can also visit the warship museum which is maintained and run by the Indian Navy which houses quite a few memorabilia and artifacts related to the Indian Navy.
The best time to visit Karnataka is from the months of October to April where the weather remains pleasant and is neither too hot nor too cold.
