Vieux Fort Attractions

The fort for which the town of Vieux Fort was named still stands, quietly watching guard over all who inhabit the area, even though military forces have long since abandoned it.  Today, tourists visit this special structure in droves, in addition to many of the other important attractions that are readily available to anyone who wishes to seek them out.

Vieux Fort: Winding your way out to the tip of the peninsula south of Hewanorra International Airport, you'll need to make a right as you reach the fork just past the Villa Wellness Center near the peninsula's highest point. You'll pass a couple of residences, then make a right as you reach another fork in the road.

A second alternative to consider is Anse des Sables. No matter which direction you're coming from on the island, you'll need to go south around Hewanorra International Airport, which can be done using the roads along either coast. Once south of the airport, the beach is right along, and can be accessed from, the St Judes Hyw on the eastern coast.

Jalouise: This crescent-shaped little beach used to be one of the island's black sand beaches until it was covered with powdery white sands. The real draw, though, is its arrestingly beautiful location in between some thoroughly impressive, world-famous pitons.

These are just some of the available choices. To read more about beaches available, use this link.
