Hey @john06, Gokarna is mostly a beach place having the most sacred mahabaleshwara temple which is on the coast too. It is more of a trekkers paradise.

Famous beaches in Gokarna: Gokarna beach, Kudle beach, Om beach, Paradise beach and Half moon beach.

The drive between Gokarna and Goa is most fun being a coastal one. Enroute this circuit, you tend to cover Goa from its south which is more peaceful.

Hi John6,
 

Here is my suggestion.

Day-1
Hyderabad to Udipi

Day-2
Visit st.Mariy's island 

Drive to Murdeshwar  

Drive to Gokarna/Goa: Gokarna is overrated place, go only If you have booked proper accommodation. South Goa is better option.

Day-3

Relax in Goa/Gokarna

Day-4
Drive back to Hyderabad

Agree with Ranger!!! in case if u r planning to visit murdeshwar start your trip from Udupi towards Goa!!!

Gokarna they are few places where you can camp or else u can also try the rooms near om beach, dont remember the name though.
Gokarna to Goa is fun to drive!
Did dis stretch last year.
Roads are average.

Cheers and drive safe

I am suggesting to stick to Gokarna only. 4 days - it will be too hectic to cover both Gokarna/Goa. You will not get chance to enjoy.

Can you let us know how many days exactly your vacation is for?
You need to drop 2 days for just for driving down Hyd - Gokarna - Hyd [It's a long journey with tiresome driving]

Gokarna is a beautiful place and beaches with less crowded , however if you want to stay away from the busy life can enjoy this place by staying 3 or 4 days , u can rent a bike or cycle and roam anywhere u want . Or just for sightseeing one day is enough

Agree with nitin, Journey on these roads is pretty tiresome.

It better to add two more days to your plan.

I had bad experience in December, place is over crowded and decent accommodations are expensive. 

 

We drove from Chikmagalur to Gokarna, We searched for accommodation(2 hours) and gave up. 

Then we decided to drive down to South Goa, Which is a good decision that we didn't regret.

If it is 4 days including travel between Hyderabad - Gokarna - Goa - Hyderabad, The time is too short, Rather I would suggest you to stick to either of it as @nitin88 suggested. 

Malpe is  a place next to Udipi from which you can take a cruise ride to reach the St.Marys Islands. There are quite a few beach stays near Malpe which could be perfect to relax.

Please suggest a best route and dhabas between Hyderabad to Goa !!

 

Hyderabad to Goa Best Route (2017) : Noth Goa

Hyderabad --> Raichur -->Sindhanur-->  Gangavathi --> Hubli --> Dharward --> Belgavai --> Chorla --> Mapusa --> Goa

 

Don't expect super good food options, Hubli and Dharward has got few dhabas.

 

Go through this link for more options:

Plan to start as early as possible.
I would suggest you to start at 4 AM.

You can escape a lot of village traffic till 8 AM.
Once the villages traffic picks up, it will kill your average as most of the route goes through villages. 

 

Don't follow google maps blindly, If you miss a single turn you will be in soup.
Make sure you pass through each and every village/town in the above given route.
