  • Worth the climb the small hill, not to see the miserable remains of the fort, but for a nice point of view about the city and the sea.

  • A bit disappointed 😞 Not properly maintained
  • What a beautiful view on the ocean to the West and the beautiful city of Cayenne to the East. In bass, so can be seen the place of Palm kernels and the various municipal buildings. Do before discovering the market of Cayenne, because it goes up a bit for overhanging the city! The faster access through the street of the Fort-Cépérou...

  • The most beautiful view of Cayenne and the Cayenne River on the other side. But strong in ruins which may collapse, it is a shame... 😮

  • visit not very recent one afternoon of Summer 2009 before renovations. armed with a little courage it's worth to go there on foot for the view of the city and partly on Cayenne River side low barracks.

Where to stay in Cayenne

Appealing to a rather exclusive set of travelers, chain hotels and resorts in the west of town offer a great range of luxury services, modern facilities, and rooms overlooking the river. Step back from the water to find humbler lodgings at basic hotels, guesthouses, and rental properties catering to budget-conscious travelers.
