Highly recommended to visit this interesting historical place. Also very nice is the Hindu temple next to it. For a perfect round trip I suggest the nearby Bekal Beach Park, where you may have some fun riding a camel, purchasing wooden handicrafts and enjoying a beautiful sunset at the beach.

Very close to National highway and you will find road signs at every major junctions to lead you to this place. This place has a neat pay Car parking facility. So, you dont have to worry much about travelling in own vehicle. Entry fee is Rs.15 for Indians and Rs.200 ( iirc ) for foreigners. Cameras are charged separately at... More

Happened to be here yet another time, since we completed work a bit earlier than expected. Amazed by the view each time I visit the place. Can be tiring if you visit the place during the day, so evening visits are preferred.

Well maintained fort. Beautiful location. Can view the sea and towns around. The fort premises is still undergoing lots of maintenance work with respect to greenery and planting trees. Appreciate the security staff that watches over people for safety concerns.

Bekal Fort is something you should not miss if you are on a trip to North Kerala. History, Architecture, Long Walk, Leisure - all theme included. Great place for family and single travelers.

Choose evening hours, esp after 4..the place s hot, n Der r hardly any shades. Considering t opens only after 8,mornings won't b a good time either unless u reach before 9. The view s spectacular,...

Its one of the best place to visit if you ever going to Mangalore. Located in border to Kerala this place is extremely beautiful. If you are in Mangalore hire a car and visit this, as it takes almost one full day. There will be some fruits and juice available outside the fort. Also do not forget to carry an... More

When my friends said that on our way to a wedding in Kerala, we will stop at Bekal Fort, it got me all excited. If you grew up in the 90's, listening to AR Rahman then you will automatically associate Bekal Fort to the movie Bombay. The song Tu Hi Re was shot in this fort. We reached at noon... More
