The Kolaba Fort is one of the most popular and magnificent forts in the region. It is about 2 kilometres from the Alibaug shore. There are two major entrances- one faces the sea and the other faces the town.Most of the fort now lies in ruins, but that is because it is 300 years old. The historical significance of this place is that it was one of Shivaji Maharaj’s main naval centres. The fort is a peaceful place to relax. Even though a lot of people visit it, the premises are big enough to accommodate enough number of tourists looking for tranquillity.

  • Animal carvings on the entrance arch

  • Nice fort we can only visit the fort if there is no high tide. We can go walking or hirse rides are available. Horse ride take 200 to 300 for return journey. There is not much to see in the fort. One temple and view from all side are the things we can enjoy. They also charge while entering the fort.

  • Nice place. You can get nice view of sunset. See the pictures tried to capture some beautiful scenery.

  • One of the main attractions of Alibaug. It's a nice place to visit with family and kids. The fort is surrounding by water from all sides but usually the depth is not much and people walk through the water to reach fort. Otherwise you can go by horse cart, it's charge is Rs.500 (Dec.2018) to and fro. 6-7 people can easily go in one cart. It is also a nice experience. Fort ticket is Rs.25 per person.
