There are three other forts on the eastern edge of the channel: Batterie de l'Anse, Fort Saint Charles and Fort Saint Frédérique, one of which is known locally as Fort-Lachatre.[1] Labouc sits northeasterly at the narrow tip separating the Atlantic Ocean and the Bay of Fort-Liberté and adjacent to a vast area of land northwesterly. The area occupied by Labouc and the land adjacent known as ESSO by locals form part of larger makeup of the bay.
