Fort de Windt reviews
Really nice viewpoint across to St Kitts and Nevis as well as of the White Wall. If you have a car it’s worth driving out there. more »
Amazing views of the ocean and other close islands. We went several different times of the day and it changes. Went on a full moon night and it was stunning. Peaceful to sit on the wall. more »
Old Fort de Windt ruins with a breath taking view, history and windy fresh air.
Awesome! Really nice place to relax and enjoy nature!
