Fort Segarra

Fort Segarra is unique among American Forts in the Virgin Islands is that it is built underground. It was built as part of the American defensive strategy during World War II, and today offers its corridors to be explored by inquisitive visitors.

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.
