about vattakottai fort

Vattakotai Fort is a perfect place for a lazy picnic — with an 18th-century circular fort, some terrific views from its top and a good beach. "A popular tourist spot with the azure blue sea on one side and the majestic Western Ghats on the other makes the location of this ancient fort a treat for the eyes. The granite fort is in contrast with the beautiful well-kept green lawns and the pond of clear water in the middle, inside the fort. The combination of the colours of grey, green and blue is sure to mesmerise you for the whole day. On the north of the fort are clearly visible white windmills, offering a sight that in spite of being mundane, adds to the whole visual impact that the fort provides. So, don’t miss out any small detail. You might not realise it but those tiny things when combined with the cool sea breezes, make a visit to Vattakottai Fort one of the most amazing experiences. "

Only watch out for the rough sand and gravel on the shore that can scratch your hands and bottom. The setback is, there are no changing rooms for one to get back into dry clothes after the dip. Just remember you’ll have to carry everything with you from umbrella to cold drinks to snacks as the place is just wilderness.
