Half Moon Beach is a lesser known beach located in Gokarna, Uttara Kannada District that visitors may choose to stop by if time permits. This beach can be reached only from Om Beach by foot or boat. Om Beach and Half Moon Beach are divided by a cliff that offers travellers a beautiful view of the Arabian Sea.
Classical Indian huts alongside the Half Moon Beach add to the beauty of the site. Water sports activities are not available here but tourists can enjoy paintball, volleyball, canoes, cabins, paddleboats and camping, along with swimming. In addition, tourists can enjoy sun bathing during the afternoons and spend nights lying on hammocks.
