There is not much to see in the fort - maybe they are about to renovate, that's why. I expected a museum and more explanation about the place and history.

Good location with sea on three sides, was majestic in its own, the lighthouse on top. Most cannons of king age as well as of Portugese origin are seen here.

Right on the water front, gives very good view of the sea, very neat and well maintained, though not like other huge forts and their grandeur. No food stalls, carry water also. Good for walking and photography.

If you love to explore history, monuments and enjoy taking pics, this is a place for you. Please don't expect it to compete with the forts of Agra, Delhi, Jaipur or Chittorgarh. It won't stand anywhere near them in grandeur or maintenance. Its USP lies in its strategic location and views of the sea. I visited there on 21st March... More
