A friend and myself go there with our coffee and sit at the top of the hill and chat and look off into the harbour, watching boat, ships passing by. It is very peaceful place to go.

I love old forts (if you do too, go to Texas!). Great spot with super views. Expansive grounds, lots of armaments!

Very peaceful place. offers a fantastic panorama of the harbor.. worth stopping by on the way to/from the beach. I would't have this place on my destination list however, as it is tiny.
