An unexpected historical site by the Divi Bay Resort~a quick walk up the path with historical markers and information. Benches were provided so we were able to stay and enjoy the view. It was a great place to sit and watch the cruise ships dock...More

You need to access this fort by entering the Divi Little Bay resort. Not a lot to see, but it's high on a hill and the sights below are amazing.

The small hike to the top was not bad at all. The views are amazing and gives a great opportunity for photos, My husband and I had lots of fun posing for photos with the view of the island and water behind us.

While it's nice to just visit the place and take in the views, etc; take the Seagrape History Tour...that will expand your appreciation for all that you will see!

What a place to drink your morning coffee if you stay near Little DIVI resort! There are awsome views with great picture spots. Free and very quiet... often we were only ones there.

This was in a private hotel area, but they let you in and park for free. You have to walk quite a bit but mostly up hill with a rocky incline. We were going earring sandals as we had not planned to go see this...More

Plenty of canons and foundations from colonial era gun batteries. Marker plates explain the significance of each structure in the fort. Honestly, the area is not well maintained, but the view of the bay is remarkable.

It is up a humongous hill from Divi resort but once you make the climb the breeze and the view are wonderful. There is a small archeological remains of a hospital / home and a house for the fort, and people have left their remnants...More
