The area is what is left of the old Spanish built Fort San Pedro. Built to guard against and resist Dutch and Muslim pirates plaguing those times. It was inherited and developed by the Americans till the Japanese occupation in the 40's. Sadly it was completely destroyed during the return of the Americans during World War II.

By the air one can still see the outline of the fort today. Presently it's a lively after hour watering hole. I used to remember the adjacent Rotary park near here. A viewdeck to Guimaras Island.

An on going project to extend the fort on its seaward side, hopefully it doesn't erase the original area of the fort for historical purposes. Besides the food people come here to go rod fishing and swim. Looking fwd to the day a historical marker be placed on this site if not re build the fort again.

One can take a public jeep or taxi from the city center to this place. You may also find government offices nearby here. #RP

Dawn before the sun smile, is the best time to be at Fort San Pedro. The place is cool and the air is fresh at that time of the day. You can see people doing their early morning exercise, and small stores within the area, sells cups of coffee , bowls of noodles, hard boiled eggs and other food stuff that you can go to if you feel hungry. The surroundings are clean as you can see street sweepers doing their chores. You can sit and relax at the cemented benches and watched the early morning sun, refresh and cleanse your mind as you listen to the sound of the waves, and be entertained watching people who are like you, are early riser.

Fort San Pedro used to be one of the favorite hang-outs of the people of Iloilo City, with its beautiful view of the sunset and delectable eateries. But now the younger generation opts to go to more modern and better equipped entertainment hubs (like Smallville near SM City Iloilo). This is such a pity because Fort San Pedro still offers people a breathtaking view of the sunset, it still has a drive-in bar and restaurant, its breeze still refreshers strollers along its banks, etc. The fort also has a very rich history behind.

Today the place looks dreary and run-down. It offers limited night entertainment and is badly lit. The local government doesn't seem to take interest in reviving its once glorious past. Perhaps the only occasion when people flock to this place is during the annual fluvial procession of the Sto. Nino every month of January. As for the rest of the year, the place is scarcely frequented by both local and foreign tourists. I myself would not recommend the place for entertainment and relaxation. There are better places in the city to go to, in this regard.

This place is very good for relaxation especially during afternoon. I suggest that you wait for sunset here. While waiting for the sunset, you may do some fishing activities or swimming you have extra clothes with you.

Passing boats from Iloilo to Guimaras Island add the beauty of the horizon. It is a good venue for photo shoots and film scenes.

I have been here almost once every week for some years now. Its a good place to sit with a cpl of beers when its hot in the city. Very fresh air. Dont buy any food here, bcoz I have seen big rats around the place many times. And it seems abit dirty everywhere. Toilets is crap. Very sad they dont fix this place, its an exellent lot. But they say they are not allowed to do anything.

Fort San Pedro used to be the favorite spots for most families looking for a great view of sunset back draft against Guimaras island. It used to be a great playground for children after hearing a mass near the San Jose Church. I remembered as a kid, we have spent our Christmas eve here. Sadly, the area is just a memory of it's past.Hope the local government would do to bring it back to it's glorious days.

The road leading to It is under construction. I think they are going to put a bay walk of some sort. I hope it would be tastefully made and easier access.

My Driver/Guide and I briefly stopped here during our Day Trip

There was no one in sight around 2:30 p m. Learned that locals used to visit and dine here in the past. Now, the place to be and go for locals and tourists is the Smallville Complex.

We visited this attraction during our city tour. This Fort was built in the 1600s

I found it a complete waste of time and is in a very poor state. Vandalism and lack of maintenence have contributed to the current condition.
