  • Very good. Should come when the weather is cool, very hard to enjoy if it's hot. Quite interesting, can climb up different part if the fort. Tamarind tree in the ground. Can pick it, and has a ledge where you can get the flower, which taste mad.
  • Not in good condition.. Just visited the beach opp to fort. Nice place.. Not crowded.. Better than Mahabalipuram..
  • Nice to see and have a picnic. No restrooms although and perhaps can spend an hour to see the place especially if you want to connect with history and sociology.
  • You may not find local help to understand what exactly was there during the Dutch owning period. So read up prior. Decently maintained under the ASI banner.
  • Almost ruined Dutch fort in Sadras, near to Atomic Power City in Kalpakkam. 1hr is enough to visit the ruins of this fort. A beach is also there just opposite side of the road very near to it. The beach is very clean and very less populated. Ideal place to visit during weekends. To reach their one can avail buses going to Mahabalipuram or Pondicherry through OMR. Get off at Kalpakkam and avail buses going to Atomic Power City or auto. Generally bus takes 10 rupees while auto accounts 15 rs.
