At a distance of five km from Revdanda and twelve km from Kashid Beach, and 22 km from Alibag, Korlai Fort is a Portuguese fortification in the town of Korlai, Maharashtra, India. It was built on an island which guards the way to the Revdanda Creek. A great construction of its time, this fort now stands in ruins but is a fabulous piece of history nonetheless. The beauty of the surrounding hill slopes is another incentive to visit this destination.
This fort was built in the year 1521 and is well known for its old beauty. The main fort is a site of tourist attraction A huge and tall fortification surrounds the entire fort area, which is of a length of 2828 feet and width of 8 feet. There are 11 large gates, of which four are outside and the remaining 7 are inside. All the gates exhibit the ancient Portuguese inscriptions. From the southern gate of the fort travellers can visit the Korlai Lighthouse which is still in operation. The tall lighthouse stands amidst a well maintained compound with a neatly decorated garden on all sides
The most wondrous thing to witness here is the view from the top of the fort. The sea waves crashing into the rocky shore and the serenity of this place make the trip memorable.
