A beach stay that's located at a perfect location - between lush green and rocky hills and sea. The beach ahead of it is almost like a private beach as it has limited visitors even during peak season (1st Jan). A perfect spot to watch sun setting in the sea and stargazing at night. We as a family stayed in the seashore till 10.30Pm with no lights or people around and witnessed the beautiful bio luminous effect that happens only in this sea ( the Nirvana beach) in South India on a New moon day. Rooms are authentic with Manglore tiled roof that's perfect for both hot and cold climate. There is clean white sand all around for kids to play and nice to walk around bare footed. The mangrove plants and trees around the rooms and Cafe gives enough shade and looks beautiful. There are many hammocks (sleeping swing) tied between trees near almost every rooms enabling us to lay down outside for a nap or a read in the cool breeze. The stay is suitable for both couples and solo or group travelers. Tent stay is provided aswell (not included in room charge) and there are  a good number of well maintain common bathrooms and toilet for people staying in tent and others as well to use after batting in the sea. Raghu the manager at the beach stay was very hospitile and professional, and so was his assistant Sandesh. Raghu is always willing to help you with a smiling face. They help us by arranging for beach rides and car hires for travel around the town (Yana caves, Gokarna and several trekking spots are located around). Food provided at the Cafe is very delicious cooked by Bali who is 15years experienced along with his wife. Rooms are decently charged considering  what the beach stay has in store for us in and around. On the downside food is moderately expensive at the Cafe though the quantity and taste is very good.

Very good location, away from crowd, noise. We took a trip by boat to Gokharna and nearby beaches. Safety was well taken care of. Covered many places , swam in the sea. Specifically we thank Pradeep and Rajesh for their wonderful hospitality. Food was really very tasty like home made.

We stayed at Sandy Shores for the new year. The place is right on the beach. The beach is very clean with blue waters. The rooms are spacious and clean. The place itself is quite good. The price is reasonable and the staff is quite helpful. One thing, that stands out is the integrity of the owner Mr. Pradeep. I had actually booked a room for October, but due to some reason I could not go. The amount I had paid was non-refundable, hence I considered it gone. However, Pradeep graciously adjusted it as a booking amount for our new booking in Jan. Not only that, he personally got our laundry done. The food is ok. Rest of the experience was just wonderful. Would love to stay at this place again.

The property has tents and rooms, though for the experience, you should stay in the tents when the weather is pleasant which was the case in December 2019 when we stayed there. Different sizes of tents are available with a common toilet and bath facility. Food and drinks are decent. If you are in a group, they will also organize for a bonfire on the beach a little off the main resort, which is good for 30 odd minutes. The guides for the beach trek are friendly and helpful. The trek itself requires some fitness level, recommended but take a lot of water with you as you will sweat a lot. Overall a good stay !

Nice ambiance. Good food. Best place for 1.star gazing 2.bioluminacent beach on a no moon day. 3.Enjoy the beach with kayaking and probably a dip in the ocean after a few KM's of boat ride into the sea. 4. Must visit place for nature lovers. 5. Good place for kids with a fresh water stream right outside the property😀 Not for fussy people who complain about things that come with being amidst nature.

Sandy Shore was absolutely amazing place to stay and unwind. The room and bathroom were really clean and well ventilated. There's ample parking space, good rooms stone throw away from the beach, hammocks to chill about and wonderful host that caters to our requests and is knowledgeable for some local area tips. Internet coverage within the area is tip top! Food served also was great! This would be a great place for both families or group of friends that would just want to chill out!
