Did a half-day sort of trip with my wife and loved it. We rode bikes back to the beach it was about 5 mins from the front, costs a few bucks to get in. We kinda drove past the fort, didn't feel like a tour but it looked interesting. I was more there for the beach which is the nicest in the area in my opinion ... especially for swimming. Some people said it was rocky, but only a bit near the shore. We went in at the end where the point was. I'm from Canada so I'm used to rocky lakes up north and this place was not even close. Water was sooo warm and inviting. Great place to picnic or spend the day laying on the beach watching boats go by, and even snorkeling. There are places to chain bikes, washrooms, tables, food stand, showers .. so its all right there. I would say this is the one place to visit in the area.
