    Beautiful place with stunning plants. Well worth a visit if you have some time in St Vincent. Was a wonderful spot to enjoy beautiful Caribbean flora.

    We did this hike from a cruise ship. We booked Fraser Trunos in advance (as did some other people on our cruise ship). He met us at the port in a nice van. The drive to the hike took approximately a hour - the roads are very winding and I don't think there is a speed limit on the island. If you are prone to car sickness, be aware - the drive to the volcano is crazy.
    This was a nice activity to break up the beach days on a cruise ship. The hike was challenging (be forewarned) but definitely doable. Wear good shoes, take a light backpack to transport snacks and take lots of water. Fraser advised everyone to take 3 bottles of water/drinks. We thought that was a bit much but we followed his advice and were very thankful we did. You are going through the rainforest - it gets hot! It took a little less than 2 hours to reach the top and it was beautiful (and definitely cooler at the top). Fraser was an amazing guide - he pointed out lots of little things that we would have missed if we were on our own. He was very personable and encouraging. Overall, we really enjoyed the challenge of the hike and being in nature.

    Beautiful and green, a lovely stop on our tour. It was especially sweet seeing all the school kids touring the place.

    Four of us hiked the ~2 mile route in about 2 hours. There were 30 informational markers pointing out different areas of interest along the trail. We'd hoped to see some of their seclusive parrots, but don't think we did. (We saw a pair of what we THINK were parrots, very high up and flying fast.) We did hear a lot of their squawking in the higher elevations. If you go, take plenty of water, as there's a bit of elevation to climb. Wear some decent shoes, to handle the muddy and / or steep sections. It was interesting to learn the different tid-bits at the placards along the trail.

    Fort Rock is five minutes away by boat.You can catch the boat on the pier near Mangoz restaurant.
    We recommend water taxi run by Kevin, normally you will find him selling fruit by the pier.

    Fort Duvernette, also known as Rock Fort is national heritage, and it takes roughly 10 minutes to get the top, if you want to go up in one go without stopping( and if you are reasonably fit).
    The views from the top are beautiful.
    There are two gun decks, with original cannon from the reigns of George II and George III.
    All together, you don’t need more than one hour and half to spend at Fort Rock.

    Unfortunately it’s littered, and
    I really hope that someone will sort this problem in the future, because this place has so much to give.

    Hiring water taxi requires multiple visits to the pier, until you actually find someone to hire, that is also something to look at and hopefully in the future will be organised better and more tourist friendly because I assume not everyone would have the time to go back and forth like we did.

    I took a taxi there with Wayne & Shakeira from Top Dawn Taxi! Highly recommend! It's a beautiful, unique place to swim and a lovely drive through the countryside to get there.

    Interesting learning more about Fort Charlotte and the history of the Island. Inside the building are historical pics about the Black Caribs.

    The falls are small but what a great swimming hole! The floral / fauna were also nice and the staff were helpful with restaurant suggestions. worth the small cost to jump in that day.

    I was surprisingly enchanted by this weird stop from a boat excursion. We were mostly volcano viewing, but this strange homage to Johnny Depp and a Pirates movie is certainly memorable. I would not have wanted to stay for very long, but it was just creepy enough to be interesting. We were told that hurricanes destroyed most of the original set, but still....

    Visited as part of a day tour. The beach had sunbeds and chairs and umbrellas for hire. Ours were included in our private tour. The beach is used for cruise ships excursions but is big enough for this not to be a problem. Nice sand and the sea was calm. Lots of stray dogs but they weren’t a problem. The beach vendors were not pushy either.

    You need to hire a boat to take you there who can properly navigate the very shallow waters on approach. It takes a very skilled captain. We arrived to this beautiful little island, we brought our picnic lunch. Sat down, and realized we were being INVADED by loads of hermit crabs that seemed to come alive on the ground. We enjoyed the afternoon on the totally isolated island. It was March, and during COVID, so there were no other tourists there.

    Just off the main road running down from the cruise terminal (about 15 minutes walk), despite looking a little worse for wear from a distance, this is a magnificent, almost gothic style, building with lovely architecture and a scenic flowered courtyard and water feature. Very atmospheric and charming inside. Should not be missed.

    Well I would say if you've heard anything about black fish and black oil it's worth checking out. The locals say the oil helps women and men with fertility and the black fish can be seasoned and sauteed similar to salt fish but with a much smokier taste. Don't expect the locals to be warm and welcoming though it seems they are a little leery of foreigners and hey if their magic potion is as good as it seems I understand why!
