Owner description: A nineteenth-century fort (now serving as the Harbor Office) featuring an adjacent stone lighthouse.
Reviewed 5 April 2018

Nothing much to write about the Fort. Can't go in so just photos from and around the exteriors. It's part of the Bonaire port skyline. Quaint little town/port. You can stroll in and around town under an hour, shopping, drinking and eating excluded of course.

Fort Oranje makes for nice backdrop photos...but that's only my opinion.

We love seeing old forts but this one was very disappointing. I didn't take any pictures (95% of my reviews I post pictures). If you are just staying in town then I would take the few mins to walk around the small portions that you can see. If you only have one day rent a golf cart & see the many things the island has to offer. It is right by the cruise port so a very short walk. I would not put this high on the list to see in Bonaire.

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.
