Nothing much is left of the Fort and the views while nice are nowhere close to what the Gustavia Lighthouse offers, in my personal opinion. The best view while "on the fort" are of the Shell Beach and this is really in my opinion the highlight of this stop.

The trick of "Fort Karl" is not to just stop here but actually take a walk to the other area by the hospital where there is a beautiful "wooden suspended boardwalk" facing west - it's right in front of the hospital's parking lot. From here also wander around the marina and Gustavia - the Fort Karl stop itself is just a small piece of an overall day trip to Gustavia everyone should do.

TIP: parking is fairly limited, supposedly by hospital it's OK to park but a bit north we were able to easily park by some residential buildings for the full day and explored the area :)

A moderately challenging hike up to the top. Not much to see in terms of the "fort" but you can see why one was built there. Panoramic views in every direction

Almost nothing remains today of this modest fort that dates back to 1789. At the stair entrance, a plaque in English, French and Swedish gives a short history. The garrison was symbolic, and no match for the French, who temporarily occupied the fort.

It takes only five minutes to walk up the stairs from the street level to the top of the hill. The view of the city, and the sea on the other side is magnificent.

There is some signage in French and English covering the flora.

Don't confuse Fort Karl with Fort Oscar, which cuts an imposing silhouette in the distance. The latter is an active military base.

A simple walk from the main St Martins ferry berth. Once ther enjoy the views of the island and its surroundings just don’t expect to see any fort. A beautiful island.

We took the ferry over from St Maarten. Got off walked past checking out all the shops. Fort Karl is a short walk and the hike up isn't to straining. Up top you have some amazing views and once you're ready to head down, Shellona beach is close by.

While wondering around the island, meander to Fort Karl. One will be rewarded with a picturesque view of the harbor. Then when at the harbor, visit the church with it huge anchor out front. Of note, beer can be puschased at the local grocery stores and a bottle opener islocated at the reqister!

This hike won't take long and you'll get some good exercise. It offers a lovely view of the surrounding coast line and distant islands. Interesting vegetation (identified). Mostly just a great hike and one should explore this elevation as long as you've made the effort.

Nothing left to see, but information displays. With a steep climb to the top it will need care. Great views though.

Worth climbing the steep steps to the top for the fantastic views over the town and sea. Not much evidence of the fort left now. Very few other people when we were there, so very quiet and peaceful.

its a big rock. nice views. you walk up there - and you look around.

no battle really happened there. I think the french or somebody sneaked by the rock and took over the place - not sure. The dutch and french battled over the little island. But its just a rock.

good hike.
