Every caribbean island needs a requisite fort or two, after all they are a great part of history and how the early settlers protected their land. Fort Saint-Louis isn't particularly spectacular, but to provides a great vantage point for looking out over Marigot and on to the western Dutch side of the island. It is not a strenuous hike, but more like a walk.

The title says it all- not a whole lot to see at the fort itself, but it is worth the walk up just to see the views! You have to talk up about 100 steps through some brush, but the walking is easy and flat at the top. You get some wonderful views of the bay, and it was quiet and peaceful.

Climed up to the fort for sunset......WOW what a view. A fairly easy walk from downtown up to the fort.

Hardly worth a peek. The history of the place is interesting if you can find anything to read about it. On site there's nothing much to inform you.
Parking difficult, Long steep walk up from town. Do not go alone or in small numbers. Prefer an accompanied group (if you can find one) !

This place is so beautiful that i took my wedding pics there. The view of Marigot is sublime, the views of concordia and galisbay is also breathe taking. You can't go to Marigot and go to Fort Saint-Louis!
