Fort Segarra

4.0

Fort Segarra is an underground fort, part of the United States' defense strategies during World War II. Its purpose was to help protect a submarine base on St. Thomas. The war ended before its completion and the project was subsequently abandoned. Visitors to Water Island can view gun emplacements, walk inside tunnels and visit underground rooms. The observation deck on the roof of the fort offers a great panoramic view of Water Island, the ocean and neighboring islands.

The chance to walk through a piece of history is really cool. Although the fort was never finished, to see what the ideas were of the fort built into the top of the island is really impressive. Although it's not very big, Walking through you could almost picture what the plan was. Highly recommend if you ever get the chance.

It was pretty neat checking out the fort and other remains around the island. The fort and nearby gun emplacement are easy to get to and explore. Great view from the top of the fort of Water Island and the ocean. When hiking around the island coming upon other fortifications, like rooms built into hillsides, felt a bit like being on an episode of LOST and finding some new structure. A few signs explaining what things are would have been great but didn't see any. The fort and other parts aren't maintained so entering rooms should definitely be done with caution and a flash light is needed for some rooms.
