The next beach along is called Om beach (it's the same shape as the symbol for the god Om). Not
my beach - Kudle
me, om, cows
I made it as far as the third beach, Half Moon which was virtually deserted - a couple of hippies and
that was about it!
That was enough work for one day though, these beaches are about half an hour from each other
hiking over the headlands and cliffs (helps to put off all but the most determined!). Om beach is
suprisingly busy though as the local villagers do a brisk trade ferrying the tourists down there. There's
also more in the way of facilities here, so if you like your life basic (and I mean no running water, toilets
and limited range of food - at the time of writing anyway), but almost completely empty of people, then
head for the first beach south of the town.
One night sleeping on a rough concrete floor was enough for me though, 4 star hotel for me tonight
before catching the bus up to Palolem (where I was supposed to be in the first place!)
