  • Used the Shaka Guide and there is a very interesting story regarding this place. Not much of the Fort to see. Some rock formations and best thing was a good view of the Hanalie Pier.  more »
  • The interpretive signs tell the interesting history of the area. There not much there, but have a quick look at the ruins to add perspective to the history. The size of the fort and the rubble that's ...  more »
  • If you are THERE, take 15 minutes. Quite efficient destruction of fort. Suppose shows how strategic the place was. Volcanic rock, like glass.  more »

  • Not sure how to best describe this place. The history behind it is cool, but seeing as you're not supposed to actually climb up onto it and look inside, it basically came down to being a pile of rocks to look at. A very very very large pile of rocks. There is a beach nearby, but the whole place is inhabited by homeless people. I felt like i was invading their privacy honestly. I ended up leaving. Probably much cooler for a history buff, but i didnt get much out of it. If it's en route to some other destination, no harm stopping by.
  • Cool but if history but he plaques don’t explain much of it. I learned more about the fort from other sources on the island. It was cool to see in person, though.
  • Pretty location and interesting story but not much is left of the fort...looks like a pile of red rock. If you are a serious history buff or you need a bathroom stop go for it...otherwise it is easy to skip.
  • The history of the site is more interesting than the actual site. More like a pile of rocks now....
  • Cool place to stop and get a quick history lesson. I enjoyed it.
