The island on which this Fort stands is called Îlette. Once, a lighthouse stood here, and an execution ground. Later, in the 17th century, under the King’s orders, they built a fort here to augment the city’s defences. In WWII, they fort was taken over by Nazis who briefly held over a hundred locals prisoner; these were later released. These stories, and other tales of military life at the fort will be narrated to you. Though it’s a famous monument, and you can visit it easily during summer, there’s not much to do here. The only way to see the fort is by enrolling in a guided tour. Call the attraction to arrange for one.

Fort National, St-malo Reviews - Write a Review
Looks awesome from the outside, unfortunately is closed after 30th September, so I wasn't able to see it from the inside. I found it very fascinating, that you can get there just at some time of the day, when the water is low.
Good place to visit during Saint Malo city walk. Can be reached on foot during low tide.
A beautiful fort, and crystal blue water around it... lovely.
It offers an absolutely stunning view of the cost and the walled city of Saint malo. At the same time the fort also looks magnificent amist the crystal blue water.
The most interesting thing about the fort is the view it gives of the coast and city.
