St. Vincent and the Grenadines Sights

Hamilton Battery/Ft. Hamilton

  • Viewpoint/Scenic Overlook

Fodor's Review

Just north of Port Elizabeth, 300 feet above Admiralty Bay, a British fort constructed in the late 1700s protected the harbor from American privateers and French marauders. For some unexplained reason, the fort was named for Alexander Hamilton, who was born on the Caribbean island of Nevis in 1755. Today, the fort is gone; the spot is simply a breezy place to enjoy a magnificent view. Hike or take a taxi from the center of town; fair warning, the road is very steep and winding.
