Hamilton Fort, Port Elizabeth
(2.9/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
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 went to this location on a tour. It was nice but it takes about three minutes of time. It is Ok. But don't go out of your way to see it. 
  • We drove up to the ....fort? There was a low wall about 20 feet long with 5 canons. There was no information. The drive was treacherous to just see 5 canons. The view was very good of the harbor inlet...  more »
