A stronghold on the shore

Still undergoing restauration, this ancient fortress sits right at one end of the magnificent black Playa Jardin. It can be accessed via drawbridge once the work has been completed

This was really close to our hotel within easy walking distance which offers up some local history and gets you out of the hotel for an hours of so.

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.
