We had an incredible time. I enjoyed getting to see the other Sandals on the island. All had great food and drinks. Saw sea horses on... More

Uriel gave us a good tour around the Battery. A 19th century British gun emplacement. We booked our own tour 10 US each. He took us on the slightly longer tour which is not possible in a big group.

Really, there is nothing left of this except an old ruin which you cannot enter or get into / not worth the time and energy to go see this, really nothing there.

If you are into cultural history and the war fought over ownership of St. Lucia you will find this site intriguing.

Friendly tour guides will show you around this colonial battery. It doesn't require a lot of time, and there are some very interesting artifacts to see.
