“Very underwhelming”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013 via mobile

Very underwhelming. From a distance the fort looks like it might be something interesting. On arrival you find there isn't much there. Good views. That's about it.

“A must while in Marigot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013 via mobile

A short hike up the hill right in the center of town. Not only will you be able to learn about Margot's history but you will also enjoy an amazing view. Entrance is complimentary. St. Martin is part of the EU and you will much get a feel of the Côte d'Azur here. Enjoy.

“Great view of the island from the top.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013

A nice place to visit when running out of things to do or see. We enjoyed our short visit and as well as the cooler air on the top. The French government needs to maintain the place a little better. Perhaps charging a small entrance fee for the upkeep.

“Fort St Louis, St. Martin”

Visited Fort St.Louis with family members.Located on french side of St. Martin. Strenous climb to the top but the view is well worth it. Would not recommend for very young or very old

“Marvellous view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2013

First of all I should make it clear that this is a steep climb and one needs to be in good physical condition to take it on. There are steps that you can use but its still very steep. There is very little of the ruins left but there are boards that give the history. The view from there however is " to die for". You can even see the island of Anguilla on a clear day. We got some great photos from there and it was a great work out.
We visited on a Sunday and we paid nothing so as far as I am aware its free. You can take children and even Seniors if they exercise regularly.
