We took short trail to get to a secluded spot where we sat and shared heart to heart. The atmosphere was perfect for that. My daughter was able to play with her friends safely,... More

This is definitely worth a visit. The views are amazing and the fort itself is well preserved. There's a wonderful little museum that has parts of history tucked away in nooks and crannies.

With an on site museum which is both interesting and educational this is a must visit if you are in Trinidad. Have a look at the local scenery around you while you are there as the views are absolutely stunningly beautiful.

This is wonderful scenic place, with a beautiful view of Scarborough and the harbor, this place is very tranquil, one can spend a more that an hour at this site, beautiful manicured lawn, cool tropical breezes and wonderful views make this place a great photo spot.
