Add a Point to the Map

Ankola town is tiny and there isn’t much to see apart from a few small temples, however the nearby Honey beach  is absolutely stunning. Honey beach isn’t your regular beach getaway; this isolated beach is in every way inviting and blissful. The beach itself is pretty much empty with just one shack on it, that has just opened up. Dolphin sightings are in plenty if you’re lucky.

Getting in and out

You can choose from a few options, you can opt for a rickshaw or taxi ride from Gokarna to Ankola, which will cost quite a fair bit. Or take the local bus from the Gokarna bus stand to Ankola bus stand; buses leave every hour starting early mornings. Alternatively you can get on a boat from Gokarna to Ankola or take the ferry across from the end of Gokarna beach to Ankola, which cost about 15 rupees per person.

Getting to Honey Beach

Honey beach can be reached by a 30-minute rickshaw ride through untouched villages of paddy fields where peacocks are a regular sight. Your only option is a rickshaw or taxi ride, buses don’t make it as far as Honey Beach. You could get on a bus and get off midway and walk the other half which should take around 20/ 30 minutes.
