Sightseeing Tour in Alibagh :

The sightseeing tour in Alibagh offers you to visit a historic fort, the Kolaba Fort, just off the main seashore. Make sure you go there and come back during the low tide when the waters have receded. If you do get marooned, there is a small village within the fort where you can potter around. Built in 1680 by Shivaji, the fort is now crumbling - all that remains are the ramparts and a moss-encrusted step well. But it's still a great place to clamber around, look out at the sea and take pictures of the shoreline. From the main beach it will take about half an hour to walk to Kolaba fort, but a tonga can get you there quickly for Rs 30-40.
