First stop on the island tour with keinotwinisletours (contact via website) overlooking Courland Bay and the turtle nesting beach. A very knowledgeable lady took us round the gardens and cannons explaining the history  Close to the mystery tombstone and well worth the visit Thanks Keino

I'm an historical and fort/castle buff. So I enjoyed wandering around this small but strategically fort site. If you are touring Tobago then drop in.
