Hamilton Fort, Port Elizabeth

#8 of 11 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 are the only ones in our group went to this amazing view. 25 minutes from the centre on foot (pace of market holidays and stop photos) we ran into space, goats, colourful houses.
