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

This remarkable fortress is interesting as at the front of the tower are many timber structures placed in the sand at the beach. You get a good view from above.

It's quite a walk. When you get close, you have to negotiate loose rocks and broken concrete. When you finally reach the gate, you are able to read the tiny sign. 'Only opens July till September'. You look at your watch. It's only May.
