The fort is full of zig-zag entrances and trenches that were built for defence purposes. It is built near the sea,which makes for a great viewing from atop the fort citadel.

Chandragiri fort: The Chandragiri fort was also built by Shivappa Naik and is located near the Chandragiri river. It is surrounded by a lot of coconut groves and also its namesake river, which makes it a great coastal hotspot for tourists.

Valiyaparamba backwaters: The Valiyaparamba backwater is famous for cruise in Houseboat. Houseboat takes you through the calm backwaters, which makes for a relaxing and soothing experience. Sipping on some coconut juice while reading a book, or being with your loved ones would be a great unwinding time on houseboat.

Bekal beach: Bekal beach is one of the cleanest and well maintained beaches in India. There are many pathways along its coastline that can make any ordinary walk into something extraordinary. The beach is well lit in the evening time, which makes the evenings one of the best times to visit this beach. The Bekal fort can be seen majestically standing strong from the coastline and it is another major attractions of Bekal Tourist Places.

Nityanand ashram caves: The Nithyanand ashram is where swami Nityananda is said to have created 43 caves. It is located on a hill lock south of Hosdurg.
