Sindhudurg Fort, Malvan

3.9
#1 of 11 in Historic Sites in Sindhudurg District
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.

  • Sometimes you're gonna jump off a cliff and land flat on your face. Then you just get up and go again. But sometimes you dive off the cliff and start soaring with the eagles, and that's when you find new music, places that you've never been before. This is one of the best place I have been to. The beauty of the fort is just amazing, The fort is made in the water with marvellous architecture. You Ought to visit it once in lifetime.
  • Only one hour is given for visit. If you wish to visit for longer duration, you need to book separate boat which may cost more than 1500. So, plan accordingly. Sunset timings are good to visit. View from the wall is worth trying. Not much to visit inside fort except temples. Food items are costly inside fort. So, better if you eat well before visiting.
  • If you are planning to visit Goa visit Sindhudurg fort view from here is very pleasing. But the fact that the ferry just allow us to stay in Fort for an hour. The Fort is big and his main point for tourist attraction in Malvan.
  • Nice Ambience, awesome view of the sea with Big clusters of Stone clashing with waves. The Fort walls were conducive walking. Amazing architecture of the fort. Big spacious fort with all inbuilt aminities. This fort from inside is amazing. Civilization inside the fort offer very spicy and tasty food to ​eat.
  • The most awesome point of this fort is it is in the sea built around 350 yrs ago on an island. The journey to visit the fort in boat is awesome. The fort is in good condition.
