Great place to visit and fantastic vue to the Marigot port. Understand why the French defended tenaceously the fort and defeated the British. It controls everything around

Getting a bit of history was a great idea. This fort takes you back in time to educate the whole family about the previous discoveries and their heroes. I did enjoy the scenery and the facts.

The goal was to balance trying new things while repeating satisfying experiences. Well, we missed the Market in Marigot on Wednesday, since we’d just flown in and our favorite mode of transportation, Aquamania’s water taxi, doesn’t run on Saturdays (the Market’s other reportedly busy day)...More

There is an amazing view of the island from atop of the fort. We were able to see Anguilla in addition to the beauty that was Marigot. There are a few cannons that remain around the fort

Nothing much to see at the fort, but great spot for views. Some history also to be read at the information boards.

A not so strenuous hike that provides great 360 degree views of the island. It is off the beaten path and not very great signage directs you to a parking lot that may be the local family practitioner or hike up to the fort. Big...More

Great view from the fort. You can see Little Bay, Great Bay and Philipsburg from there. There are some cannons and remains of a couple of buildings. The path up to the fort is a little rocky so you might want to wear closed toe...More

St. Maarten is known mostly because the beaches. In my opinion it is a great half a day trip from any resort to see something else. The views are very good. Visit on the weekends of during the day avoid traffic jams.

Look it is a remnant fort. Fairly simple. Not very restored. It is free and open. No staff or facilities. Having said that if your staying/visiting Marigot it is worth the walk up the hill for sure. Walk is not all that tough. If you...More

Well worth the walk up the road or take the shortcut up the sometimes steep steps, but interesting to be able to sneak a look into the backyard of the locals. Be sure to take some water as it can get hot! There are a...More

There's no toiletries and no wi fi. But you will spend about 1 hour only to visit all place. The view is great!
