Korlai Fort Reviews & Ratings

  • Absolutely stunning view from top. They drive to the lighthouse is rather scary but worth it! There were no people at all when I went there at midday. Looks small but the fort stretches from one end of the hill to the other. The view from top is magnificent!

  • Nice and peaceful seashore with less crowd. Prefer morning or early evening time for visit, because otherwise place doesn't feel safe.

  • 1. Built by Portuguese 2. Best time to visit is rainy season 3. No drinking water or food is available near to fort and also on the fort So better go with enough drinking water 4 . Amazing view from top .I just loved it . 5 .there is church as well as Hindu temple .

  • Beautiful fort as it is situated in place From where a nice view of sea is seen. The road that leads here is underconstruction so be careful while you take any 4 wheelers. We didn't know and had to reverse in a narrow lane so it was so difficult. You have to leave your vehicle down and walk.

  • Its basically a obsrvatory and fort is almost lost its beauty and structures also. Still you can visit to get some good view and good photos here. But you need to drive through tiny lanes and a bad smell of dried fish spread on the road to this fort. Else a good spot for explorers.
