Observe the fortified seaside of Tamil Nadu at Vattakottai Fort.

Enjoy the scenery from the walls of the keep stretching over the waters, the green landscape, and the black sand of the coast. Refresh yourself by dipping into the sea or feeling the fresh coastal winds. Bring your camera to capture the beautiful moments.
