Admire Kerala's largest fortress, Bekal Fort. Built in the 17th century and situated near Kasarogod, the stronghold overlooks the Arabian Sea. Take a relaxing walk along the well-maintained fort walls and through the lush green gardens--which have served as the filming location of numerous Indian movies, music videos, and commercials. Gaze upon the vast sea from one of the imposing observation towers, or descend below the stone walls to the small, picturesque beach and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere.

  • One of the best beach side forts I have ever seen! Click some amazing pictures here! Spread over in kilometres of space! Too hot to roam around during summers do carry the needful things to keep you cool!
  • One of the symbols that makes Kasaragod lovable to the whole world. Whether you are interested in history, architecture or landscape, you have sufficient reason to visit Bakel Fort. The rocking waves waving the high rocks are an exceptional scenic beauty from the fort atop. There is a story among old folks that the name BAKEL was coined when a member of Ikkeri Naiks, the ruling family visited the newly chosen site for the fort and asked 'jageke onthu hesaru bekkalla? ' (this place needs a name, right? )... Oudu, bekkalla bekkalla... Yes, needed, needed.
  • Beautiful Fort in which you can explore the works of shivappa Naiks kingdom. This fort was conquered by Tippu sulthan. You can experince the sea shore experience as well as the fort Experience.
  • One of most attractive place in Kasaragod. Renovated by the archeological department and being run very well by the government. Many beautiful and sweat spots to click pictures and enjoy the beach and sun set.
  • A good place of attraction. Well maintained beach and fort too look pretty convincing
