It's been a source of interest for the historians, holiday-makers as well as nature - lovers for many years. Bekal fort was actually constructed in 1650 Ad by Sivappa Nayaka and subsequently was used a number of other rulers as well as powers which include Tippu Sultan and the British Empire.

Bekal fort now rests in evidence of the wars which had been battled between powerful forces. Perhaps, the particular fort was built to fight invaders from the sea. The water-tank with its trajectory of steps, the tunnel entrance in the direction to the south, the magazine for holding ammunition and the extended steps leading to the Observation Tower, which is a rare trend during the construction of the contemporary structures tend to be some of the wonders and impressive points regarding the fort. The glimpse of the Arabian Sea and the shoreline layered with silver light coming from sunlight is really a invaluable perspective offered by the observation tower of Bekal Fort.

Bekal beach and Kappil beach which is 5km away from Bekal beach is also another place to sit back and engage in the happiness that one can find in the blue skies, sunlit sands and the silvery waters active with life. The swaying palm trees that line the beach makes it more incredible.
A holiday at Bekal gets more stimulating with the natural benefit of the backwaters that the 'God's own country' boasts about. The back waters at valiaparamba make the vacation at Bekal more romantic and worthwhile. Water sport and house boats are a frequent sight here.
