At a distance of 750 m from Somnath Temple and 1.5 km from Somnath Railway Station, Somnath Beach is a serene beach situated near the Somnath Temple in the town of Somnath. On the coast of the Arabian Sea, it is one of the famous beaches in Gujarat, and among the popular Somnath tourist places.

Somnath Beach is known for its sparkling waves, clear waters, and long stretches of fine sand. The view of the beach is spectacular, especially during sunrise and sunset. The place is crowded by devotees who visit the pristine beach of Somnath to spend some time in solitude in the embrace of nature as part of Somnath holiday packages. The entire stretch of Somnath Beach is without any trace of shade but tourists don't generally get bothered by the sun because of the cool breeze that blows across the beach.

Somnath Beach is not ideal for swimming as the waves are very high and violent. However, tourists come to this seaside destination to enjoy the scenic beauty of the place. The sight of witnessing the rise and fall of thunderous waves is a very exhilarating experience, one that will leave you spellbound for long. While on the beach, one can enjoy the scrumptious spread of food at the local stalls along with bumpy camel rides.
