Fort Bennett, Black Rock

(4/5 based on 85+ reviews on the web)
Take a peaceful stroll away from the sun's rays at Fort Bennett, a Dutch built fort from the 1600s. Overlooking Grafton Beach, the fort was constructed to protect the island from foreign attacks. It features paved footpaths, lush green vegetation, and park benches where visitors can rest. Close to the entrance, two cannons are safely located in the recess. They demonstrate how the British battery once looked. Bring some lunch and a blanket to enjoy a picnic in the shade under the surrounding trees.

  • Beautiful location for fort with lovely view of fort James to the right and Stone Haven bay and the Resorts to the left . Beware thought the waters at black rock is extreamly rough and not for non swimmers.
  • Beautiful view with history on the north coast of Tobago. A must visit if you are in the area.
  • Colourful past
  • Nice historic site to visit on Tobago island.
