The Bekal Fort
About 16km on the south of Kasargod stands the magnificent fort with its circular laterite structure about 130ft.above sea level. Bekal Fort, created like a giant key-hole, is one of the largest and best-preserved forts in Kerala. Surrounded by a splendid beach, the historic Bekal Fort offers a superb view of the Arabian Sea from its tall observation towers, where a few centuries ago huge cannons used to be placed. Today, the Bekal Fort and its surroundings - there are backwaters and hill destinations and water sport facilities nearby - is a most wanted shooting locale for film-makers. This fort overlooking the Arabian Sea was built 300 years ago. Just one kilometer from the fort is the beautiful “Pallikere Beach” from where the fort is an over whelming sight. The Aqua park nearby has a variety of thrills to offer like the pedal boat, water cycles etc.The Bekal Tourism Project is on its toes to make the naturally gifted place Bekal, one of the finest tourist centers..
