View To Sea

A great vantage point high over the sea. Take binoculars to look at the boats and the birdlife. It's a treck up the hill to get there so grab a taxi

Old fort with lighthouse , not like big forts in Rajasthan . Very hot during morning and hence not advisable to go at noon . Security can be a issue with small kids as there is no railing to stop kids or even elders from falling down . However sea view is awesome from here .

This old fort has splendid views of waters nearby. Once a tourist climbs upto it's watching points, he/she can have good views and ample oppurtunity for photography too.

If you have visited some of the spectacular forts in Rajasthan, Delhi, Agra, etc. then you will be highly disappointed. The only thing about this fort is some nice views of sea from a bit of height.

I was the lucky one to visit the Lighthouse. You get an amazing view from the top. However, the place is closed on many occasions.

If you are visiting Goa, keep this place on your list to visit. Nice old fort. Lighthouse gives you stunning views of the sea. Nice place to be at the sunset time.

You will be looking right at Arabian sea if you are at this place. This is historical fort with a lighthouse. This should not be missed if planning to visit Goa. Eateries around to help you keep hydrated. Do not forget to put a cap & sunglasses as this place is in open and becomes hot.
