Free entrance. Amazing views of Port Louis, and the mountains behind. Located on the outskirts of Port Louis.

There is some nice views overlooking the city. That being said I would not make a special trip, the fort itself offers very little.

It is worth getting a taxi up from Port Louis to here for some amazing views across Mauritius. The fort itself is nothing special but the views are spectacular.

The view from fort Adelaide on the city is amazing, but it’s rather hard to get up here. The fort itself is also not very beautiful or impressive.

This was an old fort in Mauritius. It's on a hill and offers a great view of port loius, the water port and the mountain ranges. Worth a visit.
