Although turn-off from Highway #2 is poorly marked, it is worth the visit. Spectacular view of west coast, with great view of waves trailing into Umatac Bay. Historical features from Spanish are interesting.

We made a stop on our driving tour, it is pretty and with a fabulous view. Easy to park. Well recommended, but not as a single trip.

The fort is situated in a breezy, hilltop overlooking the ocean, the bay, and the town. When I visited, it was so breezy that it was so tempting to pullout a mat (if I had one) and take a nap... Or just contemplate and stare...More

The fort is still old but the gazebo and rest area look like they were recently renovated. Amazing view of Umatac bay and beach area (does the ocean ever make waves out here? it's always calm!) and the people are nice!
