Very small old castle (remains of castle) located very close to Jardin beach. Should be visited by the way, nothing special

Went to the beach here which was lovely but the castle was closed. I knew it was only small based on the reviews on here but thought I'd have a look. It looked interesting. It would have been nice to go inside but it was closed.

In Castillo de San Felipe there is often concerts, movies, art exhibitions etc. It is a nice place to see before continuing walking on Playa Jardin beach.

Looking at previous reviews, this castle appears to have been boarded up. It is now surrounded by wire fencing announcing it is being refurbished! Who knows, it may be open by 2015!

the place is tiny and was boarded up when we arrived it looked like a derelict building site...more like a small gun emplacement than a castle...

Not quite what I expected. It is a small coastal fort but does have historical significance. It wasn't open which was somewhat disappointing.

This is a small but strong castillo and is built with hunks of bricks. The history of this is interesting just a shame it was closed and we couldn't see from inside. Views are wonderful and the famous black sand beach isn't very far away.

The Castle is very small but well built. Interestingly it has a draw bridge with a couple of cannons displayed in front of it. While I was there opening times were advertised but it was actually closed for concert. I was quite disappointed. If you like castles, you won't want to miss this.
