If you travel along Tapion Road, you can visit the remains of the La Toc Battery. The defense was built by the British in 1888 and abandoned in 1905. Further down Tapion Road leads to a narrow finger of land and this islet at Tapion Shoal. The navigation beacon on La Toc Point marks the southwest entrance to the Port of Castries. This isolated perspective of the Caribbean Sea is ideal for leisurely watching ship activity around the harbor.
