Interesting place for sure. There is a museum about the fort. But the locals go there to hike and fish. Sharks teeth can be found along the shoreline. A bike ride away from the historical district of Fernandina Beach and the town's pirate history.

Loved the beach! Found tons of shells, shark teeth, hermit crabs, fish and turtles. Did a tour of the fort. They shot the cannon for the crowd.

Maintained well, the walking tour with guide is informative and full of the history of the fort and the political era of the time. Reactments are well done. Kids would like this as well.

The beach was beautiful. Bath houses right there. Near the fort there is a vizitors center and a few steps away a picnic area and playground in beautiful shady area. The drive through the park is very scenic. You can walk and bike too.

It's a fort. i mean I have seen so many of these things nothing stands out really they are so common anywhere you go it seems. I did enjoy some of the views and it wasn't overly crowded and didn't take long to complete.
