The blackened stone walls of Cabo de Rama Fort reveal the long history behind the clifftop fortress. Now a tourist spot for nice views and a window to the past, the fort served as a strategic defensive outpost in pre-colonial and colonial times. The fort's western side offers sweeping views of the northern and southern coasts and nearby beaches, serving as a great spot to watch the sunset. See old cannons and wells, and explore the fort's hidden rooms. Don't miss one of the highlights, the lovely white church, frequently visited by devotees. You can guide yourself around the fort, but you'll find little signposted information.

This is an amazing place in south goa. The fort is not so big, but the main attraction is the beach down the fort. Worth visiting place.

Not worth spending travel time to go up there. Place is neatly maintained. There is also access to the rocky shore if you are willing to take some pics. No toilets available. Gets pretty hot during noon time. Parking space is less but you can park on the road as well. There is small shop which sells coconut and cold beverages which is a blessing for the hot weather.
Excellent place! Amazing views, both from the highest point of the fort till the small rocky beach at the foot of the fort. Do make it a point to have coconut water from Daniel's refreshment shop midway between the fort and the rocky beach, where we had a nice chat and he mentioned that the coconut trees planted so nicely on the edges of the cliff to all the way down was done by him. PLEASE do not litter around the place! People have made a royal mess with plastic and broken glass bottles in a lot of places. All in all, completely worth visiting place!
