great history lesson

We enjoyed our visit. The grounds need cleaned up and remove trash. Not sure how the French do it but i feel most countries should keep their historical sites clean. Worth seeing and the view is spectacular.

Ahh, the views!

Not so easy to find without GPS, but well worth it for the history and the panoramic views. The short walk up from the parking lot is not too bad, and is well-justified.

Great views over the island
May 2021
This is a nice spot to take pictures of the areas around Margot harbor. There isn't much to see historic wise , in fact the sign that told about the fort was all broken up on the ground.
I wouldn't come to Margot to just see the fort but if your coming to the Margot market a quick walk to the fort is good

Beautiful views

We loved visiting the Fort. It does have steep stairs and hills, and I didn’t see handicap access. We took beautiful pictures.

Gorgeous view & interesting history
Feb 2021
With steps to get to the top, it’s a very short and doable climb. The view is so pretty! The history of Fort Louis is quite interesting.

Very easy hike, great views. It's a nice place at night to see the lights come on in the city and harbor.

MAGNIFICENT VIEWS
Mar 2020
Hoofed it the long way from main drag in Marigot. Bit of a long uphill climb from there but definitely worth it. You could also park closer but we decided to get in a good walk. Panoramic views including Simpson Bay and Philipsburg. Note: Marigot was very busy and traffic congested when we were there and believe it or not, hard to navigate with a vehicle.

Amazing view

We took the Seagrapes History tour. I have been visiting St Martin for nearly 20 years, but I had never been up to Fort Louis. The view of Marigot and the bays is breathtaking. I can’t believe I had missed this.

Terrific Fort for Climbing
Feb 2020
Historical Fort from yonder days, when protecting the unique St. Martin island from predators. In great condition. Best take- away, is the walk up to the top, where you can stand next to the French flag. Getting up is for moderate hikers, going down is blissful. Warm breezes, but on a hot, humid summer day, this is a killer.

Nice walk, nice view
Jan 2020
If you're in Marigot the walk is long enough to be a walk and short enough not to be daunting, even on a hot day. The view from the top is nice and you get a bit of history with it.
