Fort is worn out though a lot of bastions are intact. Good for one Time visit. You can walk to the Fort or take a horse cart. Fort closes at 06.30 pm. You can spend from 1 to 1.5 hours in the Fort.

- Not in a good condition as it was damaged in numerous fires and attacks in the 19th century - Offers great views of the sea and land - Avoid on warm summer days

Yes it is very old fort but beautiful. Most of parts are broken but surrounding by beach so it looks beautiful. There are so many small small temples which look cute. Kund also there. It is very quite and decent Fort. Old temples are there...More

You will enjoy the boat ride from Alibaug to here but ensure not to visit between 12 noon - 3pm, specially during summer! A total no no, unless you are in a mood to get super tanned!

Kolaba fort is in alibag beach. One need to cross the beach via boats to reach the fort. They charge around 120 RS per person. People there are very helpful. Nice fort with scenic view. The cool breeze is amazing. Really enjoyed
