“Great history and beautiful views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

This is one fort on Bermuda which you do have to pay to get entry (most others are free)... However it is well worth the admission fee as there are lots of things to see and lots of informative boards dotted around the fort. It's a lot bigger than most on the island and there are a lot of nooks and crannys to go exploring.... It's also has some amazing views and the cooling sea breeze to fight off the Bermuda heat. Well worth a walk from the town up to this fort!

Top tip.... There is a great little restaurant next door to the fort called the beach hut - we had a great lunch in there before going into the fort - it overlooks a lovely bay and the food is very good and reasonably priced!

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Walked to the beach from downtown. Take the road not the shortcut found on a wooden sign in the grass on the way...to steep and hot. The beach is lovely and not crowded. My daughter snorkled here and found lots of beach glass and old pottery. After 5pm the locals come to swim which is nice :-)

“Scenic and Historic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Fort St. Catherine is located at the top of a hill overlooking the ocean. The view is beautiful from all vistas. There is a free train that operates from the town square to the Fort. I recommend it, because it is an uphill hike to get there. The fort is an impressive structure.
