La Toc was a great place to dive and play golf (9 holes at a time). The people were wonderfully friendly. The food was great. Lots of different cultures and food in one place. We had an incredible time. I enjoyed getting to see the other Sandals on the island. All had great food and drinks. Saw sea horses on... More

Uriel gave us a good tour around the Battery. A 19th century British gun emplacement. We booked our own tour 10 US each. He took us on the slightly longer tour which is not possible in a big group. This included the very interesting gunpowder room. There is a funny story how they got the gun barrel up the hill... More

The facilities were more in ruins except for the museum artifacts which were displayed in various parts of the small Fort. Without explanations from the guide, the museum on its own would not be very interesting. If this stop is... More

Really, there is nothing left of this except an old ruin which you cannot enter or get into / not worth the time and energy to go see this, really nothing there.

If you are into cultural history and the war fought over ownership of St. Lucia you will find this site intriguing.

Friendly tour guides will show you around this colonial battery. It doesn't require a lot of time, and there are some very interesting artifacts to see.

Just arrived home from Sandals La Toc property, my wife and I had a great time. The staff was great always willing to help us. During our stay we met a bartender named Nathalie. Nathalie works in the Irish Pub, she is one of the nicest people I have ever met. She treated us like family and always made us... More

It's very close to the Landings resort. Good base for the SNUBA excursion. We were able to see a small spotted eel, starfish, spiny sea urchin, octopus, sea horse and different coral and colorful fish. It was also an interesting landmark to hike and photograph. Many signs were displayed portraying the history of the fort. Wear a hat and good... More
