  • The place is a good spot for photo op and sight seeing. The chapel is unique and solemn, a good place to pray. just beside the fort and a must place to see.  more »
  • This cemetery is located right next to the fort and worth a look if you're there. It was nice to walk through and enjoy the beauty and ocean breeze.  more »
