About
Along with world-famous Somnath Temple, Somnath Beach also forms an important part of the itinerary of a tourist visiting Gujarat. It is famous for its beautifully sparkling waves and long stretches of gray sands. Travelers can unwind here after a long day of sightseeing, although, swimming is not recommended. Sunsets are particularly beautiful and add a romantic touch to the end of a great day.

Somnath seashore or chowpatty is also worth visiting where you can enjoy horse and camel rides. There are so many chat panipuri stalls and stalls selling shell artifacts.

If you are in Somnath, visit this beach. The way from temple to beach is covered with various local stalls. Try to go at 200 meter distance from these stalls, so that you can enjoy the view.

The beach is located adjacent to the Somnath temple. It is a 10 minutes walk from the temple. The road leading to the beach has shops selling goodies, coconuts etc on both sides. The beach is not very clean and attractive. Also, the sunset is not visible from the beach. There were horses and camels available for fun rides on the beach. We even spotted parasailing! The beach is okay-ish for spending some time in the evening.

It is amazing to see the spectacular view of the vast sea at Somnath. The water in very calm hence once can enjoy the evening and morning in such calm sea water.
The breath is quite clean and well maintained. It becomes more enjoyable when you see sunset right from the beach.
Very great experience.
