Fort des Oliviers
With the Ministry of Tourism and its minister, Stephanie B. Villedrouin, along with the Martelly administration pushing to rebrand Haiti as a tourist destination, speculation is rife as to why certain untapped spots remain out of the running for the spate of planned rejuvenations set to revive many a local, historic and beatific locale. One such place is Fort des Oliviers.
The 18th century fort, built by the French in their struggle against the English, lies upstream of Saint-Louis du Sud's bay and has recently been said to be 'history hiding in plain sight.' Apart from the natural beauty of the area, Fort des Oliviers has over 128 km2 of sights of historical importance. Yet, despite its manifold attractions and its small number of inhabitants, 76,000 last told, the site remains overlooked, undeveloped and wholly neglected by the powers that be.
Saint-Louis-du-Sud, a municipality in Haiti's Sud department is located in the Aquin Arrondissement. Around 52,300 people inhabit the place. It is the gateway to the capital of Haiti's South Department of Les Cayes. It overlooks the huge Atlantic Ocean and the Canal de L'est.
What You Get To See At Saint-Louis-Du-Sud
Saint-Louis-du-Sud is endowed with clean white sand beaches that can stir the heart of almost anyone. The Dumesle Bay is a cool bay to visit in Saint-Louis-du-Sud. From the shores of this place at a distance of a few hundred meters is situated the Fort Anglais, another interesting destination for tourists. A canoe or boat can be used to reach the small island.
