A fortress situated on a reef in the middle of the Bay feels like a small castle suspended in the sea. On the upper side of the channel is a cylindrical bunker with a shooting or looking hole, or barely a window. On the top of the bunker is a lighthouse, which opens at night, and wind vanes. Beneath the bunker was a row of stone-clad bungalows, all in one style, like barracks. The island is very small, so we need to get in touch with the outside world by boat from the small pier on the side of the island. There are ports and warships in the Bay not far from the blockhouse. The reef fortress is just off the coast.
Although it's an island, it's very small. From the facade of the Royal Botanical Garden, the military fortress covers the whole island, even a little like a submarine. And in such a bullet-shot place, there are ferry boats to go. Guests who have time can experience it and learn about the rich history of the island.
