Road: This is the best way to get here. Gokarna is connected to all the major cities of Karnataka. National Highway 66 connects Udupi (180 km) and Panaji (150 Km), National Highway 52 connects Hubli (150 km) and National Highway 69 connects Shivamogga (210 km) to Gokarna.
Railway: The nearest railway station in the region is Gokarna Road Railway Station (GOK) of the famous Konkan Railway. Long-distance trains hardly stop at this station. Rail is not a preferred mode of transportation for tourists.
Air: Although the nearest airport is Goa International Airport (GOI) at a distance of 150 Km, Managalore International Airport (IXE) is the nearest airport within the state of Karnataka at a distance of 234 Km.
