  • A must-see visit if you are on this beautiful island! Well documented history about this fortress that was made a National Park about 30 years ago. You can easily spend an hour there, with stunning views of Sint Eustacius, Saba, Sint Maarten, St Barths and Nevis on the other side. And of course the Mt Liamuiga behind that usually stands in the clouds. All of that for around 5 bucks, totally worth it! Do not miss it, one of the fiew UNESCO sites of the Caribbean!
  • what a breathtaking view!
