AAA Editor Notes

Fort Fleur d'Epée overlooks the bay. The point offers a fine view of the islands of Le Saints and Dominica and the mountains of Basse-Terre. Because of its strategic location, this 18th-century fort was the scene of fierce struggles between the French and English. Today preserved battlements, dungeons with underground passageways, some walls and a small chapel remain.
Hours: Daily 9-5.
