Sindhudurg Fort, Malvan

3.5
#1 of 8 in Historic Sites in Malvan
Admire the daunting walls and intelligent engineering of Sindhudurg Fort, a 17th-century fortification built on an islet in the Arabian Sea. The fortress covers 19.4 hectares (48 acres), and its huge, 3 km (1.8 mi) long, 9.1 m (30 ft) high brick rampart offers ample defense from invaders and the sea. Enjoy some of the best scuba diving and snorkeling in the country around the islet, observing diverse marine life, or simply wander around the richly historical site, observing the fascinating building work. Consider bargaining with your boat ride for more time exploring the island. To plan Malvan vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.
