Little harry drive going up but it's well worth the trip. Once you arrive at the peak you won't be disappointed. Very relaxing peaceful stroll to inspect all the sites. The view of the ocean and Port of Spain is absolutely spectacular. Try and go on a clear day for the best view, but regardless of the weather it's worth... More

Beautifully situated high on a bluff overlooking the Atlantic, this fort is a top site on Tobago. The museum has a collection of curiosities as well as some native Amerindian artifacts. It is well worth a brief wander. The well manicured lawns and plants are perfect for an amble to see the remains of the fort (jail, powder storage, barracks).... More

This was my first time back to Trinidad in over 30 years and it was a great place to visit and see POS and Diego Martin. Could truly get a sense of how much the areas had changed and for my husband a perspective of the areas that we had just driven around. Lovely breeze was blowing and many folks... More

Old historical sight. Great view of Port of Spain, Diego Martin and the ferry to Tobago. On a clear day you can see Venezuela. Crazy drive up but worth the risk.

This is a well hidden gem. Once you reach the top however, it is breathtaking! There is a sprawling view of the city below, you can see the inter-island ferry sailing into the harbour and way beyond to the never ending horizon. I wish I was there at sunset! There is a breeze that can pick you up and take... More

The view from Fort George is absolutely incredible. We went at the end of a tour of Port of Spain and it was the perfect climax as it allowed us to get a snapshot of everything we had just seen. The fort and jail are small and it only takes five minutes to look around these and read about the... More
