St Aubin’s Fort was originally a tower built in the 1540’s to protect the natural harbour, and then extended to a fort during the time of the English Civil War. When the tide is out, you can walk out to the fort and although access is restricted, the views back to St Aubin’s Bay are breath-taking. The fort is currently being used for several youth projects going on around Jersey so you may find a group of youngsters sailing or kayaking around the fort’s waters.
