It is covered on 3 of its sides by water. Things I liked about it - the view, the sea breeze, the calmness, the endevour. It closes early though, try to reach early and spend atleast 3 to 4 hours to walk around.

You can go to the beach near Bekal fort. You can also go to the backwaters and take a boat ride. Being in Bekal and taking long walks itself is beautiful and calming. No need to tick the attractions on the list.
