  • While it's nice to just visit the place and take in the views, etc; take the Seagrape History Tour...that will expand your appreciation for all that you will see!  more »
  • What a place to drink your morning coffee if you stay near Little DIVI resort! There are awsome views with great picture spots. Free and very quiet... often we were only ones there.  more »
  • This was in a private hotel area, but they let you in and park for free. You have to walk quite a bit but mostly up hill with a rocky incline. We were going earring sandals as we had not planned to go...  more »

  • While visiting the island we hiked up to see the fort which provided a nice history of this area of the island and allowed for some beautiful pelican watching. The views at sunset are breathtaking!
  • It is slowly being restored and was reasonably cleaned up. Like most old forts it is at the top of a commanding hill with awesome views. You can watch the cruise ships, or look at the distant islands and imagine the track of Columbus when he arrived in 1493.
  • Simple ruins; easy access with short walk.
  • Nice steep walk up to it from the Divi Hotel, great views, and some plaques to read about the history of it
  • It's a historic site, with epic view points over the bay. There are free standing buildings and cannons. It's a great little day hike, and a nice place to get a few pictures.
