Nice, well kept Fort overlooking the Arabian Sea. Not crowded, on our visit with a distinct lack of information about the site. Look up on internet before you visit. Hindu temple in the complex and drinks and limited food available at the car park. Walks available down to the sea and fantastic views of the surrounding area from the top... More

The Bekal fort rises majestically from the sea. make sure you have a couple of hours at hand to do justice to this magnificent piece of architecture. There are many spots for the avid photographer in addition to those shown in the iconic Bollywood song - tu hi re from Mani Rattnam's Bombay. I would say visit it twice, once... More

This is a very well maintained fort. There is a nominal fee for entrance. The inside of the fort is clean and most of it is landscaped. The views from the walls of the sea are just amazing. Must visit attraction of Bekal.

This is quiet place tucked away on the coastline stretching between Mangalore and Kozhikode. Good enough for a visit if you are crusing past the destination on the coastal highway. It has a well maintained clean environment and park which is popular with the locals. A good walk to the edges may reveal some good vistas and sceneries of the... More

Must place to visit with friends for a long chat and walk. Can't miss the views of scenic Kerala! Bonus if you manage it to the sea :)

We enjoyed an early morning visit to this well maintained fort. It can be covered in a 60 - 90 minute time frame. There are nice views of the sea as one walks around the perimeter. The fort itself is mildly interesting but not spectacular.
