What to Expect

Although this underground fort was never completed, what remains is open to the public for tours. Flashlights are recommended in order to fully appreciate the sight of these underground tunnels which include barracks, watch towers, and munitions bunkers.

From the observation deck the panoramic view of water island and the surrounding sea is breathtaking.
