Gokarna, Many of us have not heard of this beautiful sleepy town but believe me, this is another version of Goa with more peace and more lonely beaches. Hippies get filled in on this town of beautiful beaches since December. There are five beaches in a row. Each more beautiful than the previous one. But be aware, the police department here might not be as cheerful as Goa on new year.
