Hamilton Fort, Port Elizabeth

2.5
#9 of 13 in Historic Sites in St. Vincent and the Grenadines
Representing more of a gun-battery than a fort, Hamilton Fort treats visitors to views overlooking Admiralty Bay and Port Elizabeth below, atop a 90 m (300 ft) hill. A few cannons remain in position overlooking the harbor they once protected. The construction was built in the 1700s and named after James Hamilton, the founder of the constitution of the United States.

  • We took a tour and went up to the fort - not much there the view is nice but not sure it’s worth the time  more »
  • It was a cloudy and quiet Sunday when we walked up to the Fort. We enjoyed the walk through town as well as the view. It is not really what you might expect as a "fort" - just a ring of canons.  more »
