Grab your glasses and head to the hills and beaches. This season we’ve bought an amalgamation of both for you. Korlai Fort enroute Alibaug is the place to be this summer! Korlai fort was built on an island (Morro de Chaul) which guards the way to the Revdanda Creek. It was meant to be a companion to the fort at Chaul. At this strategic position, the Portuguese could use it to defend their province which stretched from Korlai to Bassein. Vestiges of the Portuguese occupation are manifested in the distinct dialect of the Korlai villages’ inhabitants which is a Luso-Indian Portuguese Creole called Krist.
The fort is 2828 feet long, and its average breadth is eighty-nine feet. The enclosing wall is 5' 3" high and has 305 battlements for guns. It is entered by eleven gates - four are outer and seven are inner. At the north point, within pistol-shot of the main battery is the water cistern named Santa Cruz - a major source of water. The area within the fort walls is divided into three enclosures by two lines of bastioned fortifications. Each of the seven bastions bears the name of a saint.
Major Attractions: Scenic ride in small winding roads passing through beautiful small villages Tall trees and an open view to the sea Old fishing village Crystal clear blue waters Delicious seafood at Nagaon Beach
