This small fort is easy to notice from your cruise ship. Nice and quaint. You can go inside and look around....will take about 5 minutes of your time. Since you are there you might as well take a look around.

There is really nothing here to see, you cannot tour the Fort and the cannnons were from a shipwreck, not the Fort. I would have expected more, maybe in the future this can be expanded.

Hard to miss as it's across from the terminal but worth walking around to see the colors & architecture.

The fort is directly across from the cruise ship docks. There isn't a formal tour but it's worth walking around and reading the plaques. The grounds are well maintained and the color of the buildings make it stand out.

Recommended as one of the few things we could do from our cruise ship docked off Kralendijk. While I have to admire the Bonairians for not catering to tourists in keeping attractions like this open on Sundays or holidays just because cruise ships are in port, you'd think they'd be proud enough of their history and culture to want to preserve more than this teeny tower of an old fort.
