  • Interesting 5 pointed fort on 12 acres. They have done a nice job of restoration. Also they have made it kid friendly by having 5 fairy doors that they must locate. 
  • At sunset, the place is dyed in beautiful colors, the reflections of the Sea become silvery. The fort takes a new look. The Ballad is beautiful. Do not miss...

  • Great views but the fort itself is not accessible. The walk over is very nice. There is also a small beach nearby, perfect for a sunny day!
  • Fantastic views at the end of a great walk. Do not forget to visit Charles Fort opposite which has been much restored in recent years.
  • Wonderful walks around and down to the Blockhouse. Great views all the way around, but it's sad that you can't climb to the top of the towers any more (Health and Safety, eh?)
  • Very tranquil and pretty. Few tourists as it is outside reasonable walking distance for most touristy types.
  • Beautiful, relaxing, and exciting all at once
