Aquatourism in Kasaragod

The northernmost district of Kerala, Kasaragod is situated on the sea coast bordered by hilly Kodagu and Mangalore districts of Karnataka in the east and north. Fishing is a prime source of livelihood along with the coir and handloom industries.

With its unique natural and cultural attractions, Kasaragod is known as the land of gods, forts, rivers, hills and beautiful beaches. The Bekal Fort, which stands on a 35-acre headland that runs into the Arabian Sea, is the largest and best-preserved fort in the State.
