  • It is an old Fort and has a normal garden. Nothing much to visit here. One can get a good view of the Worli Sea Link Bridge here. Suitable for couples.

  • A peaceful place to visit with friends or family. The fort is beautiful, and the view is stunning. The calming sound of the sea waves with instantly relax you. The place is also great for photography.
  • It's the main attraction of bandstand, do not take selfies by standing on the walls of the fort, it's prohibited! Nice & calm place. Great hangout. Nearest station is Bandra. Take the BEST bus or auto.
  • Heard about Bandra fort a lot in the recent times and couldn't believe that i'd lived my whole life in Mumbai and never visited it! Its a lovely place- very quiet and peaceful and lovely views. we felt so touristy taking pics from all different angles and walking around! there was good security which was much appreciated, esp since a cop came and warned us against going too deep in on the rocks and told us to be careful while taking pics as there have been quite a number of selfie related accidents/ mishaps in the near past.
  • A great location to spend your leisure time. With serenic views and calm atmosphere, the place acts as a best hangout for friends and especially couples
  • Have a good time with the ocean .Have a pleasant talk with air. Meet the peace. Such places are rare in mumbai. A good view . Friends ,family or alone, this place wont let u get bore.
