“Great Views”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Great hike to top on hill, not too strenuous. Views from top are worth the hike. Beautiful scenery overlooking town and beautiful Marigot Bay.

“Commanding Views!”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

It is really a relatively short climb up some stairs to the fort, with areas to rest if needed. We enjoyed the views of Marigot and the bay, and got some great pictures. We stopped there on the way to the open air market on a Wednesday.

“"Worth the hike"”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

Finding the path to Fort St-Louis is a little tricky and the climb up is best done NOT in flip flops. But the view from the top is well worth it. Great views of Marigot harbor and on a clear day you can see nearly to Simpson Bay. The signs and markers are interesting but history buffs will leave wanting more.

“Beautiful view of the island from here”
Reviewed 8 April 2014 via mobile

This is a great spot. The fort could use some restoration. Be prepared for a significant uphill hike to get to the fort.
