Fort Oranje, Kralendijk

(65+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site Tourist Spot
If you’re in town and fancy a bit of history, take a look at Fort Oranje, a small Dutch fortification built over 300 years ago. Boasting impressive views of the ocean and close proximity to shops and restaurants, you can wander around within the walls, though most of the actual building is still used by the government. Original British naval cannons stand on the walls, and the tapered lighthouse serves as a striking landmark. Add Fort Oranje and other attractions to your Kralendijk trip itinerary using our Kralendijk itinerary planner.
