This place was on my maybe list (if I had time then I would go) and sure enough, I had the time. It offers great views of the island, was a little disappointed by the size (looks bigger with some of the photos) but I learned something interesting. The visitor/information center is small so you won't spend a lot of... More

A must see in Trinidad. Views are spectacular and lots of photo opportunities exist. Getting there on the winding narrow roads is an adventure in itself

Excellent location to view most of Trinidad and sometimes a view of Venezuela. Well maintained. Only complaint may be that they close a bit early (at sunset).

The views were picturesque and very serene. Really enjoyable place. I love the rich colonial history that is there.

Stopped here on a tour of Port of Spain area. Glad we didn't rent a car...very hilly getting here. Didn't see any vendors while here. Great place to take pictures, great views of the city and coast line. Bathroom facilities were available. No safety issues.

You can't describe Fort George, without first noting the winding uphill ride to get there - that alone is noteworthy. Once atop at Fort George a special and fantastic view await, giving breathtaking views of much of the island of Trinidad. The fort itself and area are well maintained in terms of a historical sense, with cannons and structures still... More

Went up with a car to the lookout and had a amazing view on Port-of-Spain. A must when visiting Trinidad.

Just get into your car, on an evening and go. Trust me, it's worth the experience. The View: You can see for miles and miles from the top of the fort - from the hills of St. Ann's to the Caroni Swamps, the gulf and all the ships that seem to peacefully make their way in and out of the... More

In the past their were security concerns for people visiting this site. This vintage fort is beautiful and the view is breathtaking overlooking the city and ocean. This site appeared to be properly maintained but I have no reference point to compare. This is a must see when visiting Trinidad. I didn't check the washroom facility's sorry
