Kulaba Fort - Review

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. 

Highlights include:

  • The 25ft. high walls
  • Animal carvings on the entrance arch
  • Padmavati Temple
  • Mahishasura Temple
  • Siddhivinayak Temple
  • The Sunset
  • The Freshwater Tank
  • 2 Canons

Kulaba Fort, Alibag Reviews

  • Wonderful view of the vast Arabian sea. Most of the Fort is in ruins but is reasonably well maintained. The boat ride of 5 minutes to the fort, at high tide is fun. At low tide one could walk in knee deep water for about 300m to reach the shore. The other option is to take the horse buggy. The costs for the boat ride and buggy are ₹200 per person.

  • The most unusual place I have ever visited! This fort is only accessible during the second half of the day because the low tides clear up the way to the fort prior to which it is covered with sea water and you cannot even imagine how it clears up gradually with time. You have to wait till the tides are low enough to cross the sea on foot, or take a horse cart to reach the fort because the later you choose to start, the lesser you get time to explore the fort and it's premises because it closes at 5 pm. Returning back is a cakewalk because the water will have completely dried up by then! The fort is a really old dilapidated structure, which houses ruins of a stronghold that still remind you of the powerful construction that it once had been. Be careful on the stairways that lead to the fort wall, it's always good to be safe than sorry. The beautiful scenery and winds are sure to give you the time of your life but be cautious about the surroundings and leave with the second or third last group of visitors.

  • The fort lies in the middle of the sea and has two gates. One is the entry gate and other one is back Gate. You will find that during low tides, the fort is accessible through the horse ride (they charge Rs.200 for 2 people for two way ride) or even by walking in the shallow waters. During high tides, sails/boats are available at the beach. There is not much to see but the view is nice from the fort. I would recommend this only if you do not have any other great plans. Entry fee per person is Rs.15.

  • This fort is located near Mumbai in Alibaug. The destination is quite a good escape for a good weekend fun. Noon to Evening this place is quite good to visit. The best thing is to view sunset from here.

  • Nice tourist place. U will love to spend time with your loved ones at the corner areas of fort.. I mean sea shore area. relaxing specially during sun set.
