  • Bekal fort is one of the famous historical spot in Kerala. There are some portion of the port which had distortion in it's original condition. It is being renovated to retain it's original condition. Very reasonable entrance fee. You have to pay additional for using professional cameras inside the fort. Ample parking space is available there. Better to visit in the evening time as you can have nice view of sunset. The fort is well maintained and everybody is responsible to maintain it during their visit.
  • one of the best historical place to visit. you can enjoy best sea side and beaches. Despite the large number of tourists visiting daily, the site has been well-maintained. There is a lot to walk, so do not forget to carry your necessary refreshments.  There is a section of the fort that extends into the sea. This is the place to be. You experience the shear force of the waves striking against the rocks and the aftermath spraying everywhere like mist. best time to visit from early evening to sun set. one of the cleanest beach i have visited
  • Nice place to spend time with your friends and loved ones. This place is big enough for children to play. The Fort is maintained properly and it has it's charm. The view from every view point is also good. They have very nominal entry fee of Rs15/- for adults and it's free for children. This place also has a dedicated parking lot. You can park your vehicle and spend time in the Fort.
  • This place is beautiful. Entry at December 17 cost 15 a person and 25 for the camera. Take the camera; this place is beautiful! Everything is wonderfully restored. Also, take 4 to 5 hours to walk around. Get there at 8, since that's the time the place opens. Get a bottle of water and a hat. There is no littering. People are very very kind and helpful.
  • Bekal fort is a wonderful place to see. The vast area of walls surrounded by coconut trees on one side and the sea on the other. Very good place to hang out and spend some time. It is good to see in the evenings, because of the sunny weather in the mornings and afternoon. During the winter season also the Sun shines bright.
