“The Old Fort is well worth a visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

I've visited the Old Fort on tow occasions and is well worth a visit.

The view from the top of the castle is well worth the climb, but make sure you wear a good wide hat brim to shield the strong sun.

Stop off at the restaurant for a satisfying lunch.

“If you like history.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

Great views but go when the weather is good because there is little cover from wind and rain! Then take a stroll down to the Liston.

“This is a fun town full of surprises”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Spend a few hours walking around, and you will find interesting sights, shops of every size and quality. The people are friendly and helpful and don't be afraid to poke around inside the small shops. Prices are reasonable, and there was no attempt at ripping off tourists. If you are in to health and beauty products, you will find shops full of products based principally on Olive Oil. Be sure to drop into one of the small shops where you can have your feet nibbled by fish. It's the entertainment value of everyone joining in the experience and the general fun and laughter. Lovely town and lovely people.

“Great Views!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

We enjoyed walking around the fortress, especially to enjoy the gorgeous views of the water. The chapel was worth a short visit as well.

“Well worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Great views from lighthouse, amazing cafe. Kids loved it. Getting to top is a bit of a trek though with kids but well worth the visit. Location is ideal as well. Entry fee not pricey at all compared to some of the smaller forts
