Kasargod is famous as the land of gods, soothing rivers, mesmerizing hills, imposing forts, and beautiful beaches. The imposing and magnificent circular fort at Bekal is one of the largest and best-preserved forts in Kerala with the best feature being a seaside walkway with majestic views of the fort in the east and infinite sea in the west, linking the beaches in the north and south of the battlement. The Bekal Beach, known for its shallow waters, lies just 1 km away from the fort. The natural expanse of the shallow beach near the Bekal Fort, known as the Bekal Resorts Development Corporation (BRDC), has developed Bekal Fort Beach as an exotic beach location. The fort is controlled by the Archeological Survey of India due the historic relevance it holds (coins and other important historical artifacts being dug up by the archeologists).
Besides the natural beauty and cleanliness, the Bekal Fort Beach is also known for amiable hospitality. An important attraction at the beach is the comfortable facilities available here. BRDC has developed about 7000 sq m area for parking. A walkway has also been developed for visiting tourists to explore the beauty of the fine coastal line and enjoy the panoramic views of the Bekal Fort. Besides, arrangements for illuminating the beach have also been made. A children's park has also been established for children below 14 years of age. Resting facilities with multi-shed, providing tourists enough facilities to rest and enjoy the calming sea breeze, have been put up at the beach. Seating arrangements have also been provided for tourists at the beach. The nearest railway station is Kasargod that lies on the Kozhikode-Mangalore-Mumbai route and closest airport is Mangalore, about 50 km from the Kasargod town.
The Bekal fort beach in Kasaragod is another fascinating beach in Kerala and quite popular among tourists.
