Cabo de Rama Fort, Canacona

(280 reviews on the web)
Historic Site Tourist Spot
The blackened stone walls of Cabo de Rama Fort reveal the long history behind the clifftop fortress. Now a tourist spot for nice views and a window to the past, the fort served as a strategic defensive outpost in pre-colonial and colonial times. The fort's western side offers sweeping views of the northern and southern coasts and nearby beaches, serving as a great spot to watch the sunset. See old cannons and wells, and explore the fort's hidden rooms. Don't miss one of the highlights, the lovely white church, frequently visited by devotees. You can guide yourself around the fort, but you'll find little signposted information. Arrange to visit Cabo de Rama Fort and other attractions in Goa using our Goa itinerary builder.

  • Awesome sunset point. Climb down to visit rocky beach. Fort is still attractive after so much years. You just have to go and explore the place, it has most beautiful and enjoyable spots. Three spots- A) Top of fort tower- curve last piece of land view. B) Go down opposite to above tower from hill you will find spot alike in photo. C) go straight from church to 1 km you can see end point of hill and then just ocean.
  • Secluded. No convenience store. Not taken care of. Just a secluded abandoned site with a gorgeous view of the beach. There is also a cute little chapel called Santo Antonio atop the cliff.
  • Must visit place in South goa. The view from the fort is spectacular. Not much crowded. Good picnic spot. Beware no eatouts available here. Nice place for couples or families who want spend a while here.
  • Very nice fort, super view of the sea below... Not many people so it's nice and calm. Beware, no mobile signal for data /phone.
  • Take a detour from the road leading to the infamous pristine Palolem beach and Agonda. Hit this obscure tourist spot - the Cabo de Rama fort. Traverse the ruins of the entire fort and while doing so you might end up finding some beautiful small and secluded beaches to spend some time at. You get the best sunsets here. Best of all it's still untouched but the over crowding population.
