4.2/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web
See the French flag proudly flapping in the breeze over Fort Louis, the ruins of a late 18th-century fort. Built in 1789 on a hill overlooking the town, the fort defended the warehouses dotted around the harbor area. Having fallen into disuse over time, the stronghold has recently undergone restoration, and now gives a sense of how the complex functioned as a whole. Learn about the fort's history from the number of information panels dotted around the site, and take in sweeping views of the town below and the bays along the coast.

The fort itself has some history behind it along with some old rustic cannons. it is a must go place in St. Martin for pictures or to maybe just enjoy the views and sunsets. Don't miss out especially if it is your first trip to the island!
  • This Marina offers everything necessary what has to offer a marina. The Sanitätanlagem are not intoxicating. The safety of the Marina is granted through security and access restriction.
