  • It is a ruins of the Spanish age. The view is good because it is ahead of the cape. You will come by car rental or tour. If you feel the history without a shop nearby, you just go back.

  • It is a standard tourist spot that seems to stop by the way of the guam island drive without fail. It is located on a hill and has a good view.

  • The toilet was closed when going near in the evening. The toilet might be better to clean up before arrival. There was garbage in the cannon tube. Be careful of rabies because the stray dog was already cursing.

  • Great views and location. Make sure you stop and take pictures at the big bridge structure (looks like a fort) before the road goes uphill. When I visit the restrooms were locked also lots of local panhandlers.
  • Super quick spot but worth doing on the drive around. Good view of the port. Interesting history of the Spanish time. There are restrooms on site. A 5 to 10 minute visit unless you want to sit and watch the sea.
  • Best place in Guam! Pretty small but peaceful and beautiful.
  • Easily one of the best scenic spots in Guam. Been here twice in two days - guess that indicates how much I liked this place?
  • There are fantastic views from here, but there isn't much to the fort. Seems more like it was a small artillery battery than anything else. There's reproduction canons but not much else. But do come and visit for the views, especially the village below and across the bay!
