Hamilton Fort, Port Elizabeth

(2.8/5 based on 65+ 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.

  • Das Fort (eigentlich nur noch der Platz des Forts mit einigen Kanonen) ist zu Fuß von Port Elizabeth gut erreichbar und bietet einen wunderbaren Blick über die Admirality Bay. 
  • Kind of hard to get to, once there it is a sign and some cannons. Appreciate the history of it but ultimately will take about 10 minutes of time to see :-) 
  • Great views Four old cannons No guides or information Needs some heritage input Could be a wonderful opportunity to explain the history of Bequia
