Khanderi - Underi Sea Forts

 

Let’s be out there amidst the sea and witness the two gigantic fortresses at Alibaug. These forts are a prominent address for many ships that enter Mumbai harbour. This destination is one of the best way to beat the heat and soak fresh air at the sea islands of Alibaug.

Khanderi - Forming a heart shaped island, Khanderi Sea Fort is one of the prominent and intact landmark built during the great Shivaji Reign. The remarkably constructed light-house and a few canon remnants to speak of the historic glory.  

Underi- Also known as the sister fort, Underi is located at a stone throw away distance from Khanderi. Both these forts need to be accessed from the sea route. So a jetty joy ride is bound to happen while entering Khanderi-Underi Sea Forts. Underi is popularly called as Jaidurg by the locals due to its heroic presence and strategic location.
