A white tower perched on the top of a rocky hill in the middle of the sea: this is the Pomeguet fort...

My experience, Explo description: 

This is a magnificent building. Whereas most of the Frioul island forts have been damaged during WW2, the Pomeguet tower is intact. Architecturaly speaking, this little fort is maybe the nicest of the island...

The fort was built between 1841 and 1861 at a place which, according to legends, had been previously designed by Napoleon to prevent the Frioul islands from English attacks.

Climb up the 2 fort storeys to access the wonderful terrace and the amazing view...

My personal recommendations: 

Do not hesitate to visit other forts standing on the island, or to bath in one of all the numerous island creeks...

How getting there: 

30 minutes walk from Frioul port.
You need to climb the trenches around the fort to get in.

To get to the Frioul island : take a boat shuttle (SACM company) from Marseille "vieux port" (quai des Belges). From 9h till 19h every day (be careful to schedule changing depending on seasons). In the summer time, there is a special return shuttle at midnight for those who plan to have diner in the island restaurants. Telephone : 04 91 55 50 09. The trip is about 45 minutes, and 10 euros per person.

A tip to sleep: 

You can lodge in Marseille.
