    Stretching over 2 days (4 days with transport) this journey takes you through 10 spectacular beaches that come in different shapes and sizes with varied landscapes. Some beaches such as the Half-Moon and Om beaches are actually named so after their shape!

    Besides trekking you’ll spend your days sinking your feet into the soft beach sand, catching waves, witnessing golden sunsets and imbibing breathtaking views of surrounding mountains and cliffs.
