There is a lighthouse, taking a scooter is the best mode of transport, road is good but very narrow traffic jams happen There is no entry ticket you just walk around and youll see spectacular views from the side walls well maintained

We took a walk out to the fort about 40 minutes from the hotel. Standard old fort construction nothing spectacular but worth a trip.

This place is just too beautiful. The fort is very ancient and it's structure is very massive. There is beach surrounding the fort and that's what looks amazing. Surrounded by greenary and beach, it is just not possible to miss this place.
