It has taken us a year to get to see this fort as it was so often closed when we tried - a dearth of consistent opening information online and no answers from the given phone number. At the moment it is open from 10-4pm on weekdays, not weekends and was not open during the winter just past. However, it... More

We weren't sure how to get to it, we should have taken a taxi. We got off the bus in St. George and had lunch and then just started walking following the signs. We did not know how long it was or we would have never made our young son walk that far in the heat! We were exhausted till... More

So, in all honesty, we went on a Sunday, and the fort was closed. But for those people who are in the area, BRING YOUR SWIMSUIT!! There are two fantastic beaches on either side of the fort-- one is down a few steps and has a little cabana bar, where you can also rent paddleboards and paddle out to some... More

Fort St. Catherine is a must-see site when in Bermuda. From the land, it doesn't look like much, but it's actually quite large and appears much more imposing when viewed from the water. You can tour the fort for a nominal fee. You can walk the parade ground; see the cannons; descend into the battery and further down into the... More

The Fortifications are in great shape, there is also a collection on artillery that defended Bermuda from settlement to World War 2. Great views of the surrounding coastline, we hiked it from downtown St. Georges.

Beside the fact that the fort is in a stunning location on the water it makes for an interesting afternoon as well. The staff was helpful and informative!

It took an uphill walk of about 25 minutes and a few tries to find the Fort but I'm glad I did. There are two nice beach options right next to it-Tobacco Bay which is shallow and has a restaurant and St. Catherine Beach, which was mostly deserted but beautiful. I liked the fort because I like history, it wasn't... More

My wife and I love going here and being the only ones there on the beach. Awesome seeing the cruise ships come from around the fort when they leave.

A bit hard to find, but this fort on the northern tip of Bermuda offers some spectacular views. The fort is well preserved, with exhibits from the 18th century and earlier. A 1950s Charlton Heston movie was filmed here, and it is easy to see why. Not crowded and off the beaten path. There is a small public beach right... More
