It was a nice visit on the beach at the fort. We climbed it and it was really windy but beautiful. Many fun rock ornaments on the beach and the weather was great. Learn a bit of history before you go, otherwise it will look like a pile of rocks for you.

This was a very interesting place to visit. It was great that you got to climb around in and on the old fort. Once you climbed up you saw beautiful views of the Caribbean! This a great activity to do with kids. Our fourteen year old son really enjoyed it and it is also a good spot for photos.
