Walk the ramparts, check out the shops and restaurants within and just have a great time. Loads to see and do and there's even a beautiful sandy beach to enjoy when the sun is out.

Only at low tide can you walk out to the Fort. We walked out but a visit inside is only possible from April to September. We were disappointed not to be able to see it.

This is t a large monument to see, so a tour is a must but if your French is next to zero I would seriously consider getting some research done before coming here. Or come just to look at the views.

We were in our hotel rooms looking at the tide recede and lo and behold we saw the pathway to the old Fort open up and it was just incredible to be able to go out to it on foot! So inspiring!

Loved the tour around all the wall of the old city. You can see all the good beaches around and choose the one you want to spend time on, including when the tide is up:) Worth it. #truebenji

We walked out to the fort just as the tide went out, and paid our money for admission. It's an interesting fort but has just one building on site, and that isn't open to the public. As we left, my wife was asked by someone...More
