Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The fort is in a prominent location and although it is not open to the public, it is clearly well-used by local youth groups for water activities. There are some lovely views and also some informative information boards. It is a fascinating place.

When the tide is out it is easy to cross to the fort. Once you are there the views all around are lovely. It is a pity the doors into the bunker are locked and no one seems to tidy up the litter or repair the benches, but as it is free to visit and Jersey is so poor (lol) I suppose they cannot afford it.

The fort can be reached by a path at low tide, but the conditions can be muddy and slippery. It's a beautiful building to photograph at all times of day, but it is not open to the public as an historic building.

Pretty island port in the bay. It was high tide when we visited so couldn’t get close to the fort but it looks very picturesque.

Really fun to walk out at low tide across the mud flats. Although the fort itself is not open, you can still walk about the outside and get good views across St Aubin's bay.

The tide goes out so far that you can walk to the fort at low tide. There is nothing to do on the fort as it is an outward bounds facilities however the views back towards Sy. aubin are great.

We were very lucky.

We decided to walk out across the causeway at low tide to view the fort. Just by chance we got speaking to the key holder, Chris, who also had responsibility for Youth Services on Jersey. He very kindly told us about the fort’s 500 years of history and showed us around. He explained the inspirational youth projects going on at the fort and we realised how lucky the young people of Jersey are.

It was a very interesting place and well worth a visit.

Thanks again Chris and good luck with the youth programmes in the coming years.

Interesting fortification, built on the tidal island protecting western part of St Aubin’s Bay outside. It was built in 16th century and served by 1880 when the garrison and cannons were withdrawn.
As with other old fortifications on the island, the Germans built a couple of their bunkers here and the facility was again on duty during the occupation of Jersey.
The fort is accessible on foot, at a low tide – nice walk, however it is better to keep to the hard causeway, because the sea bottom exposed at low tide is quite muddy.

Originally a tower built in 1540,s to protect the natural harbour this was expanded to a fort at the time of the English Civil war and a harbour and pier were added. Easily accessible when the tide is out.There is a fine view of the bay running round to St Helier
