It's very close to the Landings resort. Good base for the SNUBA excursion. We were able to see a small spotted eel, starfish, spiny sea urchin, octopus, sea horse and different coral and colorful fish. It was also an interesting landmark to hike and photograph.

The history behind the fort is interesting but what for me was more inspiring was that it was one womans vision to bring it back from an overgrown piece of land to what it is now. An inspiration to all.

If you are interested in the history of the islands this is a good place to visit. Bit run-down, could do with some TLC and money spent on it, but the island has other priorities than to spend money on places like this, unfortunately.
