Visit Fort de Windt, one of the Caribbean's best-preserved forts, which served as a defensive structure from 1756 until it was abandoned in 1815. Take in picturesque views over the Caribbean Sea and St Kitts toward the southeast. As you stroll around the fort, find rusty cannons scattered about, as well as two cannons looking out over the water. Find a sundial and step back to the 18th century as you use it to tell the time.

  • Difficult to speak of an attraction, it is rather a point of interest of Statia offering views of St Kitts from a promontory between the volcano and overhangs of a beautiful Pebble Beach, the view is nice, relaxing, the site is quiet well maintained and is a goal for the one who is walking.

  • Apart from the two cannons depicted on the photo and a billboard nothing is the beautiful views of the neighbouring island and the views on the edge of the island to see - but: "White Wall" are worth the visit.
