“Great walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

On our last morning, we walked up here and enjoyed both the fortress and (I sound like a broken record) the sea views.

“Super views, lovely way to spend a morning!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Nice old fortress with rewarding views at the top. It's quite a hike but there's a nice little caffe at the top!

“Very hot - but the view was worth it.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

We wanted to walk to the peak but as the weather was so hot we drove. It was easy walking to the fortress from the car park and was surprised to find a nice little gift shop. The view is stunning.

“Stunning views - take a picnic!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Stunning views at the top. Plenty of benches and seating to have a picnic. Also open in the evening - an ideal place to watch the sunset.

“Lovely views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

Don't be put off by the thought of the walk up to it. There is a safe pathway that is accessed by waling up steps between houses from the sea front.
We decided not to go into the fort as there is a charge and we had no idea what we might see (or not) for that money. The views though are free and well worth the visit for...take your camera and get some lovely snaps.
