Historic Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • Nice heritage. Quite place to relax have a picnic or out with family and friends. Cool to see what they had to endure long time ago to protect the island. A must see when on St. Eustatius.  more »
  • Interesting history. Be sure to take comfortable walking shoes, water and sunscreen. Walk to the church and graveyard.  more »
  • Pretty though, but much more like what you see on the picture here is not. Because the island is so small you can drive there in 10 minutes and it is certainly well worth it.
