  • This place has some amazing history. I go here often to have a coffee and watch cruise ships come and go. There is a ton of traffic here though. People driving beside you looking in and then pulling away. Not sure what's up with that. So not overly quiet, some may say it's full of creeps but I ignore and enjoy the beautiful views.
  • Good place come have ur coffee and watch the harbour. !
  • Nice views love it but there is not much in Fort howe
  • The fort is nothing really but view and St John sign are nice.
  • Great view of Saint Johns waterfront
