The watch tower

It gives the beautiful view and feel of the region. One must not miss this tower if one is in Konkan and exploring it's real beauty.

Reached by narrow road, good place to go up and get a lovely view of the sea down below. Best to go between 4 and 5. Not crowded like other lighthouses so one can enjoy the solitude. otherwise it is an average lighthouse attraction.

Ratnagiri lighthouse is located on the nearby hill of Ratnadurga fort. Road to Lighthouse is narrow and only 1 car can travel at a time. You need to take left just 1.5km before Fort parking area. Timing to visit this lighthouse is from 10 to 5 whereas better to visit after 4 PM. Sometimes they allow tourist till 5.30 pm.... More
