It was interesting to walk around, especially the tunnels although there wasn't a ton of information available. Was disappointed that there was no access to walk where it looks like there was cells or something. Cannons were impressive!

Stopped here with a small tour bus group. The concrete-walled fort sits atop a hill that overlooks the cruise harbor. The access road is narrow, steep, and crowded with tourists and vendors. Drivers need to be observant because the tourists aren't. There is a small...More

We went on a dune buggy excursion and this was our first stop. We enjoyed hearing the history of this fort and the island. It’s located near lots of local eateries if you’re interested in true island food.

I believe it opens at 9:00am. The entrance closes at 4:00pm, but you can stay inside until 5:00pm.
