At SwaSwara, all the noise fades away, and you can engulf in the relaxing symphonies of birdsong, rolling waves and the wind passing through the trees. Relax, release and refocus in order to tune into your inner voice, and begin a journey of rediscovering yourself.
ENRICHED BY THE SEA
SwaSwara is located on Gokarna’s Om Beach – the serene beach named after the first sound of creation ‘Om’. Stroll down its sandy beach, letting the sounds of the waves soothe and refresh you. Meditate on the Meditation Hill overlooking the sea, or on the rocky outcrops abutting the coves, and watch the sunrise. Reinvent yourself with the ever-rejuvenating power of the sea.
