It is also known as the Jewle of the Sahyadri Mountrain, and has a nice climate for most of the year and includes many great scenic views.
Gokarna is a small holy town within Lonavala and holds four of India's most secluded and pristine beaches. Both pious pilgrims and holiday tourists come to visit with an equal amount of enthusiasm. Other attractions this place has to offer include temples and wonderful places to take hikes as well as natural caves with exquisite views and sites. You can even find yourself a cultural hut right on the beach to spend the night in, giving yourself an old-fashioned Lonavala stay. Of course there are hotels to be found in Lonavala, but they have much less character than the places you can find right on the beach and they lack the wonder of being right there on the tanned shores. Namaste Cafe is a popular place to stay if you are thinking of staying at Om beach.
