Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

this 18th century fort is one of the few sea forts of our country. The fort is made of granite and is a popular tourist spot but not many come here as it is a bit far while doing a city tour

This was originally built by Pandya kings as mud fort. Later was reconstructed as granite fort by De Lennoy, commander of Travancore Army. Great fort with separate slope for taking artillery and lots of defensive positions in the ramparts. Great fort to visit with excellent view of the nearby beach.

This is an ancient fort rebuilt many times over the millennia. This version was built by the French adventurer/ commander of the Tavancore forces - Eustachius De Lannoy in the 18th century. Well maintained. Nice fort.

The fort is simple square fort wall, but the sea view form the fort is marvellous. Best in the morning/evening to avoid hot sun. But you can feel the breeze always. Superb beach view and you can have a view of Cape Comerin from here.

Vattakottai Fort has been declared as protected site and come under the administration of Indian archaeological department. It has been restored and developed as a tourist attraction.
The mesmerizing view from the fort is another reason why you should plan a visit to Vattakottai Fort. The view of vast spread of serene ocean on one side and the mystical Western Ghats on the other side is undoubtedly hypnotizing, making your visit to the fort worth remembering.
