Chapora Fort, Chapora

(750+ reviews on the web)
Ruin Landmark
Get a new perspective on the coastal area and the mouth of the river, as well as a greater understanding of local history at Chapora Fort. Built by the Portuguese in 1617 on the site of an older Muslim structure, the fort changed hands many times before its ultimate abandonment in 1892. Today, the crumbling ruins only possess outer walls, although the view from these alone merits the hike uphill. Standing on top of the ramparts, you'll gain sights of nearby beaches and the sparkling sea and river below.

  • It's a wall, you can have a good look at the beaches and perfect for sun set. You gotta climb the mountain carefully. No transportation to the top of the fort. It closes at 5.30pm sharp. But there's a way on the left side of the wall to enter inside. Good place for taking pics.
  • Great view from the top. Cool breeze from the sea is just perfect after a steep climb to reach the fort. You can see Vagator and Chapora beach on either side and also the port in between. Perfect for panoramic shot. Warnings from other reviews are true to an extent but, if you can make 10-15 steps on a staircase then, that's all it takes to get to one of the refreshment shops. They're at every turn on the way up. So, take as many stops for as long as you need. It's worth the effort to reach the top. Make sure your footwear has good grip.
  • Such a beautiful place. The entrance is quite steep so beware and be careful as you climb up. You absolutely have to walk up to the tip which is on the far end of the port. You'll wonder if it's worth it but trust me.. It's worth it!
  • I would recommend to visit Chapora fort only if you have lots of energy and stamina for walking uphill. It is a kind of trekking. You need to be very careful while climbing. Risk is there that you may skid while going up or down the hill. But once you successfully reach the top the view from the fort will blow your mind. Include this as a must sightseeing point in Goa. But before going to the hill, you should take lots of energy drinks / water with you. You will get very thirsty while climbing. Water is sold there at double price. So, carry water bottle but don't take any luggage with you.
  • the view is spectacular but you need to climb (45 deg incline almost) on slippery mud/sand makes it tricky. not for old/infirm. the entrance is not clearly marked. also they close @530 sharp. sunset viewing is a must! reach early n catch ur breath n settle down.
