Fort George is super fun to check out. If you you are new to Caribbean driving then go for it but otherwise maybe a cab. Go in the morning the light is better.

Fort George offers a great view of Port of Spain from above. Although not a big fort, it's very nice to stand on top and look down at the city. Even the trip, getting to the Fort is a very nice experience!

Getting to the Fort is a challenge by van because of the narrow roads, however once there the view of the Gulf and Port of Spain is breath-taking. Well worth the trip.

This is not a big fort but gives a good insight into local history with it's commanding position over the town. It is a steep drive up but there is a good car park, lots of picnic places and there is no charge to walk around the fort. There are lots of cannons - British of course! Definitely worth a... More

This site is integral to the history of the island. The fort is kept in pristine condition and the facilities are also very clean and well-kept. The building hosts a small museum of sorts which can be perused in a matter of minutes, but the true payoff of the site is the spectacular and panoramic view it commands of Trinidad's... More

The ultimate view. As you ascend to the top of the mountain you begin to be awed by the beauty of the West Coast. On reaching the top, the beauty of Port of Spain unfolds. Then you spiral upwards looking at a panoramic view of North to South Trinidad on the West Coast, seeing the whole of Port of Spain,... More

View is nice, facilities good but place is very isolated and is a potential security risk for a robbery.

Very well preserved, this fort occupies one of the highest places in Tobago. It commands a spectacular view of the port and surrounding area. The main building has a small museum that one can exhaust in 10-15 minutes, but the main attraction comes from the view of the island. It is one of the “must see” attractions on the island,... More

This is a site you should visit when in Trinidad. The view is spectacular and the ground are kept really nice. There is a fee to visit the museum.If on a cruise ship take a taxi or tour as walking up that long hill in the heat is really a challenge.
