Bekal Beach is right adjacent to the fort. There are a few colourful fishing boats on one end while the rest of the beach is free for swimming and lounging around. Your typical hawkers are here offering candies, horse-carriage rides, fried food and even some magic shows.
Later we decided to visit the Bekal beach, which is adjacent to the fort. There are rides and a park for the kids. We spent around 15 minutes there as it was very crowded.
The fort is spread across around forty acres on the Malabar coast overlooking the Arabian sea. Travelers can enjoy at the beach with their families or friends and can also indulge in cruising. Tourists can also savor the taste of Payasam, which is available locally.It was an unique experience. Bekal Fort is surely a place for a day trip. Can be a place for a leisurely tour or a serious visit for a study of the past.
Beaches are really clean and photograhers will surely love this place.Overall, its ideal for a half day trip.
