Hello,

I will be ending a yoga retreat in asvem beach on april 17th and then I have until the 25th of April when I am scheduled to take a train down south out of madgaon railway station(it was the only ticket I could get. It looks like this is close to Gokarna and I am wondering if Kudle beach will still have some guest houses open or will the beach be too quiet? Thoughts? I was here last year in early to mid march and I loved it so much.I stayed at Jasmine cafe and would love to agian if they are still there. I know it will be hot and all but I don't have much time in India to go North with everyone else on the circuit. Just seeking some chill out time before heading back to the states. Suggestions??? Should I stay in Goa?

Much love!

Sorry, can't advise you on Kudle, but I believe Namaste Cafe at Om beach is open year round and there are rooms with a/c.

Namaste's location is good and friendly staff.
Also, good cottage type rooms.

Cheers!

Forgot to add, regarding trains...
If you miss your train or have any problems, there is a pay-on-the-day daily train from Margao at 14:25(Verna-Mangalore Passenger). The return is 10:23 from Gokarna Road.
It's Rs25 one-way.

near Kundle Beach you can try Namaste Yoga Farm run by a German.
Cottages were quite good and he sends a rickshaw complementary to pick you from station.
Its the Journey that matters, not the Destination

Yes, Gokarna town is definitely not walking distance from the station.
To add further, there is a bus service to town but not sure how often they run.

Apologies for question.

How is the weather there now ?
I was there during last week of Dec(2011) for about a week and planning to come there for about a week during end of April and work from there.
What are the current rentals now for a beach hut in Patnem / Palolem .....I guess should be less as the season is coming to an end.

Missing King's badly...

Cheers!

Beach Huts you can get for 300r.. The weather is pretty hot around 31/33 max but a nice cooling wind from the sea, also a little cloudy which is nice.. Lots of places on the beach to drink ice cold kings too.. Happy Days
