We could not get in the fort itself due to being out of season but don't let this put you off a visit to the fantastic beach alongside - perfect for a spot of rockpooling and pebble hunting not to mention amazing coastline views.

Went here on recommendations online but the beach is unpleasant, rocky pebbly and not very clean. The fort was closed, even on a glorious sunny day in June! Wouldn't waste your time here, it's like a ghost village.

Gave it a five because the surrounding beach was absolutely stunning! We were there with small kids (2,5 and 7) on a cold windy day, and they loved the beach climbing the stones and searching the small waters. Didn't enter the fort, though ;)

interesting fort to visit due to its position ( in sea, on a rock), and the view on the côte dÓpale. The presentation of the many items in the museum could be more professional
