Fort Louis, Marigot

(4.3/5 based on 650+ 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.

  • We go last year in April, the evening, just before the sunset, it's a magnificent view to admire a sunset, Fort is easily accessible, it is possible to climb to the highest close in car, without following the usual path. The Fort is illuminated at night with the colors of the France. You can make beautiful pictures, and it's very quiet.

  • This place has some of the best views on the island of Sint Maarten. It looks out over Marigot and the turquoise coloured waters of the Caribbean Sea. 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.
