The average height of the fort walls is 25 feet. It has two main entrances, one on the sea side and the other towards Alibag. An interesting feature of this fort is that it has freshwater wells in its premises even though it is a seaside fort. In the [[monsoons]], the fort can be reached by wading through waist-deep water at low tide. However, at high tide, boats must be used to reach it.
