This is a good vantage point to see both sides of the island and surrounding islands. The hike up the steps was challenging for my 45+ legs but it was well worth it. A must see!

when you think of a fort you may think of a large fort like the one in san juan puerto rico or st. augustine florida. this is not that. but it is a neat little stop if youre a history buff and like beautiful views....More

Loved going up here to check out the views. They have some really cool signs with lots of information and history on the island. What beautiful lookout and lovely place to explore! And it's free!

Stayed at Divi and walked to the Fort. Great history and views. Canons, radio hut is all there. You can see the cruise ships in port also.

The view from Fort gives nice look at Phillipsburgh & surrounding area. Not much remaining of original Fort but signs have been added to help understand the past.

This fort gives a great view of Great Bay and has super cooling breezes. It stands between Great Bay and Little Bay and gives historical information.

An unexpected historical site by the Divi Bay Resort~a quick walk up the path with historical markers and information. Benches were provided so we were able to stay and enjoy the view. It was a great place to sit and watch the cruise ships dock...More

You need to access this fort by entering the Divi Little Bay resort. Not a lot to see, but it's high on a hill and the sights below are amazing.

The small hike to the top was not bad at all. The views are amazing and gives a great opportunity for photos, My husband and I had lots of fun posing for photos with the view of the island and water behind us.
