Run down as are most of the forts are, half the displays didn't work or lighting not working. yes it only cost a dollar, but it did have a beautiful view of the surrounding area.

While listed as a point of historical interest, the place is run down and mostly unkempt. Not worth the fare to visit

Lots of places to explore here. The vendors out front didn't try too hard to sell to you, so that was nice. Ask for a guide when you walk in, they don't charge for it, but you can tip them if you feel inclined.

For $1 admission, this is a neat fort to check out. I had heard that the Pirates of the Carribean movie was filmed here but I don think that's accurate. It was neat to see all the old carvings in the stone from the bored soldiers.

The tour guide would only complete the guided tour if we paid a tip half way so we did not get to see everything underground.

This fort was constructed during British rule. There are a few signs detailing the life of the soldiers & the construction of the fort. It was a nice place to cool off a bit during the day and it is a great lookout point because you can see for miles at the top of the fort.

This fort was the first that Jermaine from Jermaine's Taxi and Tours took us to. The guide at the fort was knowledgeable and gave a good tour. The rest of the volunteers and staff were also friendly and helpful. We saw the "firing" of the cannon as a part of the experience. Views from the fort are wonderful as well!!

The fort was built in the late 18th century by the British to defend the island against a French invasion that never came. I am sorry that I visited as part of a tour.Come on your own. Really gives the feeling of the difficult life it had to of been for the soldiers. staff is very knowledgeable and freindly. Stop... More
