Sindhudurg Fort is a great location to photoshoot

It was a wonderful experience to visit  the Sindhudurg Fort and I will tell you why Sindhudurg Fort is a great location to photoshoot.

Sindhudurg Fort

One of the most amazing forts on the Konkan coast, the Sindhudurg Fort means ‘Fort in the Sea’, so you can understand why Sindhudurg Fort is a great location to photoshoot . The fort lies on a rocky island  in the Arabian Sea, just off the coast of Malvan,  Maharashtra in Western Indi and you can get there only by boat from the mainland.

The fort was built by Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and is  surrounded by sea from all sides. The only way to reach the fort is by boat. The boat ride was enjoyable as there were slight sea waves and gentle winds. 

The boat ride is about Rs 90 per person for a 2-way ride. Also avoid going in the afternoon or noon as the sun is harsh. You will thoroughly enjoy the 20 minutes boat ride enroute the Fort.
Spread over an area of 48 acres with fortified walls, the ancient Sindhudurg Fort is a great location to photoshoot as it provides wonderful backdrops and views  over shimmering blue seas all around.

Just 8 kms off Malvan is Tarkarli beach which is famous for watersports,parasailing,scuba diving and beautiful views. 

I enjoyed the tasty seafood. The local style of cooking is called Malvani cuisine and includes coconut, rice and fish.
