The fort is very near to the sea, but due to new constructions the view is lost now. Also there is nothing much to see inside the fort. Just drop a visit if its on your way to Trivandrum to Varkala.

This is an old East India Company fort which is very interesting to visit. You are able to walk around the very thick walls of the fort and around the gardens inside. It is free to visit.
